Capital City Reads is Carson City Library’s annual city-wide book club that brings people together through the reading and discussion of a common book. The book selection is "In the Country We Love: My Family Divided" by Diane Guerrero.

To learn more about immigration and undocumented workers in the United States, join us for a free screening of the documentary Beyond Borders: Undocumented Mexican Americans on Tuesday, April 24 at 6:00 pm in the Digitorium at the library.

BEYOND BORDERS: Undocumented Mexican-Americans examines US policy decisions that triggered the rise of undocumented immigration in a deeply moving documentary program that explores the under-reported lives of Mexicans living and raising families in the United States. The film carefully explains the history of the relationship between the two countries - Mexico and America - some of which may be unfamiliar to viewers. In telling the stories of several undocumented Mexican-Americans, BEYOND BORDERS reveals the reasons why millions of Mexican workers have settled in the US over the past four decades instead of returning home. It also illuminates the remarkable networks that connect the film's characters with the families they left behind, and the very real human impact of the anti-immigration backlash now sweeping the country.
