Gina Nemirofsky takes video of a group of school girls in Haiti for the documentary, ‘Girl Rising.’ The Newcastle Library will host a screening and discussion of the film March 21.

The Newcastle Library will host a screening of “Girl Rising,” a global documentary featuring the strength of human spirit and the power of education, from 1-3 p.m. March 21.

The film spotlights the lives of three young girls from Haiti, Peru and Afghanistan, showing how education impacts their lives.

Community leaders, including members of the Newcastle Youth Community Engagement board, will join the screening and participate in a discussion.

Annie Liu, from Charles Schwab, the film sponsor, will introduce “Girl Rising,” as well as participate in the community discussion immediately following the screening.

All members of the community, ages 13 and older, are encouraged to join the screening and engage in a community discussion to talk about what was learned from the film, share stories and explore ways to make Newcastle a better place.

Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Newcastle Library. The Newcastle Library is at 12901 Newcastle Way.
