The Round Rock Public Library presents the 2012-2013 season of Community Cinema, part of the Independent Lens Series. All screenings are free and open to the public.

November's film will be Solar Mamas by Mona Eldaief and Jehane Noujaim at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29 in Room B.

Rafea is 30 years old with four children and a husband who is eager to take a third wife. She is a Bedouin woman living in a small Jordanian village close to the desert. With encouragement from the country's Ministry of Environment, she leaves her village for the first time to go to the Barefoot College in India to train to become a solar-energy engineer.

The Barefoot College in India was founded by Bunker Roy to provide knowledge and training to the rural poor to empower them to make their communities self-reliant and sustainable. The solar course at Barefoot College has women from Kenya, Burkina Faso, Columbia, and Guatemala.
