It’s 1957 and computers are just being introduced into the corporateworld.  When a consultant arrives at the Federal Broadcasting Company and starts asking questions, everyone feels threatened – especially the Reference Department. Will the “electronic brain” make the staff redundant?

Join us for Desk Set on Friday September 21, 2012 in Room 305 of the Weinberg Memorial Library, and see if man, woman or machine is superior!   Free show (including popcorn) at 7 p.m.

This classic American comedy stars Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn in their eighth film together and is presented by the International Film Series (formerly the Foreign Film Series).   Jean Lenville, Assistant Dean of the Weinberg Memorial Library, will lead a discussion following the film.

Seating is limited, so please contact Sharon Finnerty at or (570) 941-6330 for a reservation.
