Eleven years in the making, FUEL is the in-depth personal journey of filmmaker and eco-evangelist Josh Tickell, who takes us on a hip, fast-paced road trip into America s dependence on foreign oil. Combining a history lesson of the US auto and petroleum industries and interviews with a wide range of policy makers, educators, and activists such as Woody Harrelson, Sheryl Crow, Neil Young and Willie Nelson. Animated by powerful graphics, FUEL looks into our future offering hope via a wide-range of renewable energy and bio-fuels. Winner of the Sundance Audience Award.

NOOK COLOR IS HERE!
The HCH Library has two Nook Color ereaders
with adult books and two with children's books available to circulate.
Great! How can I borrow one?
1. Clinton residents, 18 years of age or older, having their own current library card in hand, may check out the NOOK.
2. Fill out and sign an agreement.
3. You can try out the adult NOOK COLOR for 14 days, and the children's NOOK COLOR for 7 days. A hold may be placed on the nooks: no renewals. We have loaded an eclectic array of titles, new and old, for adults and children, and have included a newspaper and a magazine, as well. Have fun exploring. The library maintains the content on the NOOK exclusively; you do not have to download anything.
4. Return the Adult NOOK directly to the Reference Librarian on the second floor & the Children's NOOK to a children's librarian on the first floor.
NOOKs cannot be returned in the book drop, to another library or left on the desk.
