December 4: Long Term Care Insurance 101 with Mike FitzPatrick.

With a lifetime of experience in the field, Mike is uniquely qualified to offer valuable insights into how to make a solid insurance plan.
December 18: Scandinavian Holiday Traditions with Lotte Newlin. As you may know, your local librarian loves a good party — and nothing better than a traditional holiday feast. Come and enjoy music, stories, crafts and, of course, delicious Scandinavian treats!
STEM Sundays
Recognizing the growing importance of science, technology, engineering, and math, the Library is introducing a monthly Sunday afternoon family-oriented program. Children and their parents are invited to join us for a series of hands-on activities designed to explore the sciences in a fun, informal environment. We can’t wait to try out the Floating Egg Experiment or the Volcano in a Bottle exercise.
. Edible science experiments – Which kind of chocolate melts faster? Will the orange float? How do you tell a cooked egg from raw? Join us and find out! Registration required, please.

Evenings at the Library
Charlotte Bonelli
Exit Berlin: How One Woman Saved Her Family from Nazi Germany
Charlotte Bonelli, author of Exit Berlin, tells the true story of Luzie Hatch and her quest to save her family from Hitler’s forces. Luzie, a German Jew, fled Berlin to resettle in New York after Kristallnacht in 1938. Once in the U.S. she began to help relatives and friends escape Nazi Germany.
Luzie saved the letters from German relatives making desperate requests for help, and she kept copies of her own correspondence. Ms. Bonelli has transformed this rich trove of letters, now housed at the American Jewish Committee Archives, into a riveting narrative.
Young Masters with Artist Reagan Geschardt
Introduction to painting with acrylics for children ages 7 and up. There will be 8 sessions in total. Participants should plan to bring a cover-up (old t-shirt), canvas, and paint brushes.
Registration is required.
