Join us in the library auditorium for a screening of Just Getting By: A Day in the Life.

From Kingdom County Productions:

"Just Getting By — a new documentary by Bess O’Brien is a sweeping yet intimate look at the lives of Vermonters who are struggling with food and housing insecurity.

"Vermont has the second highest rate of homelessness in the United States, second only to California. One-third of Vermonters struggle to put food on the table. These are big issues for a small state. Just Getting By focuses on these issues in the lives of everyday people.

"The film tells the stories of working families, folks who are homeless and are accessing food shelves and soup kitchens, people who are living in the temporary hotel/motel program, New Americans grappling with the cost of living in America, Native people creating innovative farming practices and folks on the ground providing services to their fellow Vermonters in need. Just Getting By explores the day-to-day challenges and incredible resiliency that low-income Vermonters bear witness to every day."

There will be a Q&A with the director after the film. There is a $10 suggested donation. We hope you can join us!
