It Happened But Nobody Noticed
Friday, September 11th at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room
Join us for a special screening of the documentary movie, It Happened but Nobody Noticed on Wallingford Public Library’s big screen. The film is by local film-maker Jerry Lombardo and charts the rise and rise of the Connecticut punk, rock and indie music scene. Full of live footage from the heyday punk years of ’78-’88, as well as lots of new interviews with featured musicians and scene-watchers, this movie is a must see event for anyone interested in the CT new wave music scene. Were you there? Did you notice? Perhaps you’ll appear in the crowd footage. Check out that hair!
The film is not rated, but is intended for adults due to theme and language. Refreshments will be served.
The Library offers two sources for downloadable audiobooks.
Also try Audiobooks at iConn, a service of the state library available to all Connecticut residents.
The Library will be closed on Monday, September 7th in observance of Labor Day. Regular hours resume Tuesday, September 8th. Saturday hours begin on September 12th.
iConn, the Connecticut Digital Library, now offers downloadable audiobooks to all state residents. All you need is your library card. The downloadable audiobook catalog includes over 1300 titles which can be transferred to iPods and certain mp3 players. Give it a try today!

Engaged to the woman of his dreams yet uncomfortable with the prospect of not having a best man for his upcoming wedding, a successful real estate agent with no male friends schedules a series of "man dates" in hopes of finding a suitable candidate for the big day. Peter Klaven (Paul Rudd) is just like most other guys, only when it comes to making friends he's always been a bit withdrawn. After proposing to his girlfriend, Zooey (Rashida Jones), however, Peter quickly realizes that he doesn't even have any friends close enough to qualify for the role of best man. And what better method to find the perfect best man than to spend some time getting to know the most qualified candidate for the position?
