Tonight! Movie night at the Fosston Library Theater! 6:30 PM featuring "Thank you for playing"
When Ryan Green, a video game programmer, learns that his young son Joel has cancer, he and his wife begin documenting their emotional journey in the form of an unusually beautiful and poetic video game. THANK YOU FOR PLAYING follows Ryan and his family over two years through the creation of “That Dragon, Cancer” as it evolves from a cathartic exercise into a critically acclaimed work of art that sets the gaming industry abuzz. Lauded as "unimaginably intimate" by The New Yorker and "profoundly moving" by Indiewire, THANK YOU FOR PLAYING is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the ability of art and technology to document profound experiences in the modern age.

Tonight!
Minnesota in World War I: The Great War by Arn Kind- October 23rd – 27th
(For Adults and Youth)
2017 is the 100th anniversary of the America's entry into the Great War, now known as World War I. The First World War, which for America, lasted only 19 months involved more than 100,000 men from Minnesota. They served in the army, navy, marine corps and medical corps. Of that number more than 1,400 were killed in battle or fatally wounded. Another 2,000 died of disease; many from the flu epidemic which broke out during the war.
In this presentation participants will learn:
 The causes of the war
 Why and how America got involved
 Strategies used to win the war
 The uniform, weapons, equipment and the life of the typical Minnesota soldier or "Doughboy."
 The role women played in the war
 The new technologies that were introduced during the war. Technologies like the airplane, the submarine, the tank, etc.
 How the end of the war would make the United States a world power, but it would plant the seeds that would lead to the Second World War.

Tonight! Movie night at the Fosston Library Theater! 6:30 PM featuring "Iris"

Iris pairs the late documentarian Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens, Gimme Shelter), then 87, with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. Iris portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are her sustenance. She reminds us that dressing — and indeed, life — is nothing but a grand experiment. "If you're lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows."
