While life slows down for many during the summer, we're busy planning and providing suggestions and experiences for your precious down-time. (Also, I'll bet you didn't know that we're also busy planning your fall!*)
Adult Summer Reading continues in July with (right off the bat) a One Page Poetry Circle (tonight, July 1st at 7 p.m.), Meet Us on Main Street, a weekly staff-recommends, Short Stories for Long Days, a short story dicussion group, a special Meet-the-Author event featuring Jayanti Tamm, author of Cartwheels in a Sari: A Memoir of Growing Up Cult, Classics 2.0, a fun and fresh look at the classics, and a Woodstock Weekend which will feature a screening of Woodstock with an introduction by Bob Spitz, the author of "Barefoot in Babylon: The Creation of the Woodstock Music Festival - 1969."
Monday at Seven will also continue throughout the month (and beyond). The next meeting will be on Monday, July 6th, when the speaker will be Wayne Pasternack of Bloomberg. He will demonstrate the feature of the Bloomberg terminal that will be installed here at the Library on July 1st (major news!).
We also begin our Summer Film Series this Friday, July 3rd at 7:30 p.m. with Confessions of a Shopaholic. Next Friday, July 10th, be here for Taken. The series will run for eight consecutive weeks -every Friday at 7:30. For a the full summer movie lineup, click here.
And as long as we're talking coolness factors, in case you haven't been by the Library in the past week or so, we have refreshing news...the courtyard fountain is now operational (and beautiful)!
*...here are a few events that are confirmed for the fall. Ready? I'll wait while you get your calendar/Blackberry/organizer....On Sunday, October 4th at 5:30 p.m., A.J. Jacobs will be here to talk about his new (side-splittingly hilarious) book The Guinea Pig Diaries: My Life as an Experiment. And, on Thursday, November 5th at 7 p.m., the week following the release of his newest book "True Blue," David Baldacci will be here. Looks like it won't only be a great summer...the fall is looking spectacular, too!
