Operation Time Capsule: Starting on June 10th

GREETINGS to the FUTURE!

Join us for this exciting community project! What would you say to those in the future?

Say “Hi” to your older self or simply leave a message to your family, friends, community or humanity, to be read in 50 years.

This program is designed to bring the community together in the present (and in the future), with the simple intention of leaving a message to those who will be visiting the library in the year 2069: about hopes, feelings or simply ideas of what you expect the future to have been.

Pick up your postcard during the duration of the Summer Reading Program and return it not later than July 31st. After collecting them all, we will archive them on a box to be opened on July… of the year… 2069!

History’s Bookmark Night: Tuesday, June 25th, 6PM

PBS’ American Experience:  War of the Worlds

Calling all history buffs to join us for our History’s Bookmark Night, our very own history club at the library.

Each month a subject will be discussed through a selected reading list. Join us for an informative evening exploring many different historical events, while sharing opinions, information and anecdotes with others.

Join us for the screening of PBS’ American Experience: WAR of the WORLDS.

What began as a broadcast performance of H.G. Wells’ fantasy, The War of the Worlds, turned into one of the biggest mass hysteria events in U.S. history. PBS’ American Experience examines the elements that together created this frenzy, including our longtime fascination with life on Mars; the emergence of radio as a powerful new medium; and the creative wunderkind Orson Welles, the twenty-three-year-old director of the drama and mischief-maker supreme.

Additional related materials are available for check out.
