SIERRA CLUB - THE CITY DARK
Is darkness becoming extinct? When filmmaker Ian Cheney moves from rural Maine to New York City and discovers streets awash in light and skies devoid of stars, he embarks on a journey to America’s brightest and darkest corners, asking astronomers, cancer researchers and ecologists what is lost in the glare of city lights. Blending a humorous, searching narrative with poetic footage of the night sky, the film, The City Dark, provides a fascinating introduction to the science of the dark and the effect light pollution has on humans and wildlife.
More About Oradell Public Library
In February 1913, the Oradell Public Library was a goal thought up by a group of residents. Just a few weeks later, that same group of residents created a Board of Trustees and officially opened library's doors.
The library was expanded in 1940 to include a non-fiction room and office area. It now covers a two-story building with a basement that houses the Archive Room and media collections. The first floor features the adult sections and reference collection, while the second floor is dedicated to the young adult and children's sections.
The library features several works of art that were donated by Oradell artist Charles Livingston Bull, included an owl bookplate and cougar painting.
