Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

This debut documentary by Craig Atkinson gives viewers a boots-on-the-ground look at American policing, bringing in perspectives from criminal justice reformers, policymakers and law enforcement leaders. It won the Best Documentary Feature Award at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The son of a SWAT team member in Detroit, Atkinson thought he knew what he was getting into when he started a new film about American policing. But, after three years of filming, what he discovered was an unprecedented lurch toward militarization for local police forces since the September 11 terror attacks in 2001.

This special community screening is part of the library’s collaboration with POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series. Visit for more information.
