Teen Movie Night: Oz the Great and Powerful
Community Room (Lower Level)
Thursday, Sep. 25, 5:00 p.m.
[Grades 6-12]
When Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician with dubious
ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot---fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora, Evanora and Glinda, who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting.
Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz---but into a better man as well. Rated PG. Running time: 127 minutes. No sign-up required.

Cloud Storage & Collaboration
Brick Room (Lower Level by the Stairs)
Thursday, Sep. 25, 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
While cloud storage sounds like it has something to do with the weather, it refers to storing your data on a remote computer maintained by a third party. Learn about some of the popular cloud storage options available today such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and Microsoft’s Sky Drive. Cloud storage allows you to access your files from any location with Internet access, reduces your need for USB flash drives, and with the right cloud solution, allows you to collaborate with colleagues or classmates. 
This is a lecture presentation.
Registration required, limit 10 Lansing cardholders. Meets in the Brick Room, lower level. [Offered by IT]
