  • International Observe the Moon Night
    All day

    International Observe the Moon Night is a worldwide celebration of lunar science and exploration. One day each year, everyone on Earth is invited to observe and learn about the Moon together, and to celebrate the cultural and personal connections we all have with our nearest neighbor.
    This year the event occurs on October 20th, when the Moon is around first quarter. A first quarter Moon is visible in the afternoon and evening, a convenient time for most participants. Furthermore, the best lunar observing is typically along the dusk/dawn terminator, where shadows are the longest, rather than at full Moon.
    Come to the Charlotte Library now and pick up a moon map and a Moon Observation Log that is meant to be filled in over a month's time to familiarize the observer of the phases of the moon.

  • Great Decisions: US Global Engagement & the Military
    7:00 pm-8:30 pm

    The global power balance is rapidly evolving, leaving the United States at a turning point with respect to its level of engagement and the role of its military. Some argue for an “America First” paradigm, with a large military to ensure security, while others call for a more assertive posture overseas. Some advocate for a restoration of American multilateral leadership and a strengthened role for diplomacy. Still others envision a restrained U.S. role, involving a more limited military. How does the military function in today’s international order, and how might it be balanced with diplomatic and foreign assistance capabilities?

  • Great Decisions: South Africa's Fragile Democracy
    7:00 pm-8:30 pm

    The African National Congress (ANC) party has governed South Africa since the end of apartheid in 1994. But the party today suffers from popular frustration over official corruption and economic stagnation. It faces growing threats from both left and right opposition parties, even as intraparty divisions surface. Given America’s history of opportunistic engagement with Africa, there are few prospects for a closer relationship between the two countries. Join us to discuss how the U.S. can create a more meaningful and mutually rewarding relationship with this fragile government. Reading materials available at the circulation desk.
