As usual, when it comes to Events, we've got lots to tell you about. Adult Summer Reading is our biggest news for June, but we'll also be offering a Musical Film Series, and we've already begun a weekly program for Job Seekers and Networkers. Both of these are brand new initiatives here at Darien Library and we're really excited about them!
Some of these events begin right at the start of the month, so please take note!
On Friday, June 5th, we will begin our first-ever Musical Film Series.
The first film will be The Band Wagon, starring Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse.
All films will begin at 7:30 p.m. and refreshments will be served.

Monday at Seven is an initiative to provide resources to Job Seekers and Networkers. We will open our doors every Monday (or the first day of the workweek if Monday is a holiday) from 7 to 9 a.m. to provide a resource and meeting center for residents of Darien and Darien Library members.
Access to computers, office software, specialized databases, and the Internet will be available and documents and resumes may be printed and faxed at no cost. “Monday at Seven” also provides the physical space for meetings, education, and networking. Participants may also receive resume advice and Library staff will provide technology assistance and proofreading support.

The June Events Calendar at the Library will also be culturally enriching. Programs include a Shakespeare lecture, an art exhibit and reception, and theatrical performances.
On Thursday, June 4th, at 7 p.m. Mark Schenker (pictured, right) of Yale University returns to Darien Library for a discussion about A Midsummer Night's Dream. A Midsummer Night's Dream will be the summer production of Shakespeare on the Sound. More information is available right here.
If you've been by the Library during the past several weeks, hopefully, you've had a chance to see the Art on View in the Art Gallery. This Land is Your Land, paintings of Darien Land Trust properties will be on exhibit in the Art Gallery on the lower level of the Library through this week.
There will be an Artists' Reception open to the public this Friday at 6:30 p.m.
On Sunday, June 14 at 2:30 p.m., the Actors/Playwrights Workshop will present the first public-staged reading of selections from the plays in the Community Room!
