About Bud's Watch Party

During this time while we're staying socially distant, Bud Werner Memorial Library is organizing special opportunities to share hot documentaries you might have seen in Library Hall. Instead, we're watching them online, virtually together at home. The library hopes that you'll enjoy watching these thoughtful films, then come together for community conversations to share the experience and maybe even put our isolated heads together for some thought-provoking brainstorming and solutions.
