READY, WILLING AND ABLE: A HISTORY OF WESTON FIRE, POLICE AND DPW

This exhibit, sponsored by the Weston Historical Society (WHS), highlights the day-to-day services we often take for granted and the emergency services we hope to never need. The exhibit will also show the evolution of town services as an expected and necessary responsibility of local government. 

The WHS has discovered a rich trove of photographs, memorabilia, and objects such as leather fire buckets and fire hats from Engine Company #1, police badges, handcuffs, and "Wanted"posters, and a stock certificate from the privately owned Weston Water Company, founded in 1895. 

A reception will be held Saturday afternoon, April 11 from 1-3 pm, and a related lecture is planned for later that month. In addition, the Spring 2015 issue of The Weston Historical Society Bulletin will be devoted to a history of these town services.

Please join us in the Gallery and Community Room for this event.

MID-LIFE? HOW DID WE GET HERE AND WHERE ARE WE GOING?
7:00 PM

In the throes and chaos of kids, marriage, jobs, and other responsibilities, rarely do we have time to reflect 

on where we are in the present, much less anticipate and plan our future.  This evening will be a time to 

pause and consider together our current lives and our fears and aspirations about what lies ahead. 

Dr. David Treadway noted author and marriage and family therapist will talk about the problems and 

possibilities of normal mid-life issues. He will discuss energizing ways for developing greater mastery and 

satisfaction in our everyday life as well as how to visualize and create our futures. Bring an open mind and a 

sense of humor!

This event,  sponsored by the WCCA,  will be held in the Community Room.

NON-FICTION BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP: HOT, FLAT AND CROWDED BY THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

The environmental movement reserves a hallowed place for those books or films that have stirred people from their slumber and awoken them to the fragility of the planet: Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring",  Bill McKibben's  “End of Nature” and Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth.”  Thomas L. Friedman’s book, “Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution – and How It Can Renew America” may encourage America to face the threat of climate change and do something about it.

Friedman concentrates on sketching possible solutions. It is in these passages that Friedman’s ideas really take off, allowing him to give vent to his enthusiasm and unabashed idealism. The reader will be carried along by his evident passion.

Please join us in the Reading Room for this event.

Read to a Dog!
10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

For students in kindergarten through fourth grade.

Why read to a dog?  Because a dog is friendly and fuzzy and loves the attention of being read to!  Gain confidence in your reading aloud skills and enjoy the company of one of our fabulous reading buddies.   The program is in the Storytelling Room--when reading, only the readers, the dogs and the trainers are in the room.  Parents and siblings must remain outside.  Readers just gaining confidence don't need an audience!    Bring your own books, or read some from the library.

Pre-registration is required; sign up for a fifteen minute session.

To register, visit the library or call the Youth Services Desk.  We will need you to confirm you are coming by email or phone 24 hours before the event.

COFFEE HOUR WITH THE LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS OF WESTON

The League of Women Voters of Weston will be discussing the lease that Land's Sake receives from the town to run their operation on town owned land.   This lease has traditionally been for three years, but Land's Sake trustees have requested a longer lease so that they can implement longer term goals, like installing electricity.  The Selectmen have supported their request and the issue will be on the Town Meeting warrant in May.

CONCERT: MOSAIC STRING TRIO
3:00 PM
The Music Committee of the Weston Public Library is excited to present a concert of music performed by the Mosaic String Trio.  This classic ensemble of violin, viola, and cello has a much smaller repertoire than that of the String Quartet, but it makes up in quality what it lacks in quantity.
 
The Mosaic Trio is made up of Lu Sun, violin, Pat Vance, viola, and Peter Zay cello (who has played for us before, most recently on February 8 in the Valentine Jubilee concert).
 
They will play music of Dohnanyi, Bach, Schubert, and Beethoven, all but the Bach being originally for this combination of instruments.
 
Please join us in the Community Room at 3 pm, where the ambience will be enhanced by the exhibit then on display by the Weston Historical Society.

AUTHOR TALK: PATRY FRANCIS
2:00 PM

Spend a cozy afternoon listening to popular author Patry Francis talk about her latest novel, The Orphans of Race Point, a story of friendship of characters who meet as children growing up in Provincetown and the forces that push them together and pull them apart over the next few decades of their lives. 

The Orphans of Race Point was chosen as a featured alternate selection in the late Spring cycle of the following book clubs: Literary Guild, Doubleday, BOMC, Mystery Guild and online via BOMC2.  In addition, The Boston Globe chose The Orphans of Race Point as a “summer read” recommended for those who liked Dennis Lehane’s Mystic River.  In 2014, The Women's National Book Association selected The Orphans of Race Point as a "great group read".

This book has a Weston connection – come and find out what it is!

Two Year Old Storytimes

Session One 10:00 - 10:30
Session Two 10:30 - 11:00

Drop in and listen to several simple, age-appropriate stories based on a fun fall/winter theme, then make a craft with your child!

Story appreciation and craft manipulation are based on the fine motor skills and listening abilities of two-year-olds. For that reason, and so that the group experience will be positive for all, we ask that children be two years old when they attend.

Adults must stay with children.
