An historic day

NEW HAVEN — The public is invited to experience inauguration day at all branches of the New Haven Public Library, beginning at 10 a.m. Jan. 20 with televised events to be projected onto large screens at branches throughout the city. Check for locations.
Also, the film "The Democratic Promise: Saul Alinsky and his Legacy" will be shown at 6 p.m. at the Main Library, 133 Elm St. An early influence on many of current political leaders, including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, Alinsky is credited with the slogan "Think globally, act locally," library organizers said. Commentary will be provided by Melissa Canham-Clyne, author of a forthcoming article on community organizing; Kia Levy, of Empower New Haven; and Seth Godfrey, a classmate of Obama at Columbia College. The programs are free and free parking is available at all branches, including after 4 p.m. at main branch. For more information call 946-8835.
