Carla's Sandwich read by Allison Janney

When Carla brings weird sandwiches to school, her classmates have plenty to say about them. “That’s sick!” says Leslie. “That’s disgusting!” says Natie. But Carla thinks otherwise. “It’s unique. It’s creative.” - Just like Carla.

When they rode their bikes, they always used hand signals. If Chester was hungry, Wilson was too. They were two of a kind, and that's the way it was - unt...

General information

The Warren County-Vicksburg Public Library was founded in 1916 with the help of funds from library philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. It was housed in a building at the corner of Monroe and South Streets. For many years, a separate branch housed a library for the African-American citizens of the community. The two were combined in the 1970’s and in 1979 moved into the spacious structure at 700 Veto Street, the present library site. The Warren County – Vicksburg Public Library serves the nearly 50,000 residents of Warren County from this building located in the downtown area near the scenic Mississippi River. For the period of 1974 through September of 1986, the library was part of the Jackson Metropolitan Library System. When the system was disbanded in 1986, the library once again became a single-county unit. The Library is governed by a Board of Trustees, whose members act under the authority of the Warren County Board of Supervisors. Through funding from Warren County, grants from the State of Mississippi and the Federal Government, and generous donations from businesses, organizations and community members, the Warren County-Library System has the ability to provide a variety of library services to the citizens of Warren County.

The Library of Congress Lets You Stream Hundreds of Free Films By Sara Aridi Oct. 23, 2018 Cinephiles, rejoice. The Library of Congress has unveiled its new National Screening Room, a free collection of digitized historical films, commercials, newsreels and other clips. According to the library, most of the movies are in the public domain and are available for downloading; others are only available to stream. The National Screening Room is something of a time capsule: The videos cover the period from 1890 through 1999, capturing a broad range of American life. Notable films include home movies by the songwriters George and Ira Gershwin; issues of the “All-American News,” a newsreel intended for black audiences in the mid-20th century; and a selection of instructional films about mental health from the 1950s. New Yorkers might get a kick out of a short silent film shot in 1905 that shows a new subway chugging along from 14th Street to 42nd Street, months after the underground line had opened. And before the Stonewall riots shook Manhattan, protesters in Philadelphia were filmed during “Reminder Day Picket,” one of the earliest Gay Pride demonstrations. The project is meant to “enrich education, scholarship and lifelong learning,” said Mike Mashon, a curator who leads the library’s moving image section. The library says it has the largest archive of moving images in the world, amounting to more than 1.6 million materials. Nearly 300 videos are online, and new content will be added to the website on a monthly basis. A version of this article appears in print on Oct. 23, 2018, on Page C3 of the New York edition with the headline: Library of Congress Opens Screening Room. Order Reprints | Today’s Paper | Subscribe
