What is Philanthropy
6:00 PM, Monday, December 1

Philanthropy is synonymous with American history, principles, and culture; yet it remains an evolving and largely misunderstood topic. What is Philanthropy? seeks to enhance our understanding of philanthropy and its role in American culture and society.
This film takes a holistic view of this important subject by presenting its historical context with contemporary issues and including various perspectives from a wide variety of stakeholders.
Through multiple formats, this film targets the general public as well as students in K-12 classrooms and higher education institutions throughout the United States. The power of visual learning is well documented by research, and this film will serve as a tool that teachers, professors and instructors of all types can use to holistically convey what role philanthropy plays in our lives. Footage is shot from all regions of the United States, and it presents multiple viewpoints and perspectives from a broad array of participants.
A Thought Provoking Films Production � 2013

Salvatore Alaimo, the director, will present the film at HPL and field questions afterwards. Dr. Alaimo is an Assistant Professor in the School of Public, Nonprofit and Health Administration at Grand Valley State University.

Dave Hardin Band
6:00 PM, Monday, December 8

The Hackley Public Library is pleased to announce the next performance in its monthly concert series. This month we are featuring the gifted singer/songwriter, Dave Hardin and his band. The show is set for Monday, December 8, 2014. Dave Hardin's talent perhaps is best described with these words: “His voice is striking – craggy and weathered, just right for the lyrical scenarios of small towns, lonely highways, and rural routes…his songs have an earthy elegance that warms the soul.”- Curtis Ross, Tampa Tribune
Sometimes fueled by real emotion, or a glimpse of everyday events, but always looking for how the story might continue, or sometimes sadly end, his songs are a slice of real life. His voice is instantly recognizable; it gets in your bones and makes you feel part of the story, part of the song. His style of playing is full and rich, notes, chords and percussion all from his guitar.
Dave Hardin is one of those rare talents that comes along and captures you as a fan for life, and sometimes you swear the songs are from your life. They just might be.

To get a taste of the music, check out this clip on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMvJtg3NR9c
