Lisa Fagundes, Librarian
Come to our End of Summer Reading Party on Saturday August 9, 1 to 5 p.m.! Make a button and enjoy our chocolate fountain! All ages welcome.
Everything In Pen —Combining the pop sensibility of Big Star and the off-beat narrative observations of Jonathan Richman, acoustic artist Everything in Pen sings an entire set of songs that have been inspired by books. In each song’s introduction, she explains which book or books are referenced in the song. The “Dave Eggers” song, for instance, is obviously inspired by Eggers, but also has lyrics from Wendell Berry and Richard Powers. Other book songs reference Betty Friedan, Richard Yates, Barbara Kingsolver and many others. Thursday, August 21, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Come to Digital Drop-In, where you’ll get one-on-one time with a librarian to help answer your basic technology conundrums. Wednesdays, August 6, 13, 20 and 27, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
