We're having a birthday party and you're invited to attend!  Please join us in celebrating renowned children's author Theodor Geisel a.k.a Dr. Seuss's birthday in pure whimsical, whacky Seussical fashion!

To kick things off we'll start with the big screen showing of The Lorax (2012, Rated PG, 86 minutes.)  Twelve-year-old Ted hopes to win the heart of his dream girl, Audrey, by fulfilling her wish to see a real tree. In the walled city of Thneed-Ville everything is artificial, including the air. Join Ted in his travels as he encounters the Lorax, a grumpy yet charming creature who "speaks for the trees." What initially began as a quest to get the girl, turns into a larger, more important challenge to save the world. 

Immediately following the film, kids are invited to create their own personal birthday message as part of a gigantic birthday card for Dr. Seuss. There will also be games and more colorful, bubbly fun.  

Registration is not required to attend but seating is limited.  

Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

Shored Up
No Rating (2013) 84 minutes

Shored Up is a documentary that asks tough questions about our coastal communities and our relationship to the land. What will a rising sea do to our homes, our businesses, and the survival of our communities? Can we afford to pile enough sand on our shores to keep the ocean at bay? In Long Beach Island, New Jersey and the Outer Banks of North Carolina, surfers, politicians, scientists and residents are racing to answer these questions.  Beach engineering has been our only approach so far, but is there something else out there to be explored?  Our development of the coastlines put us in a tough predicament, and it’s time to start looking for solutions.

With a pre-film talk by James Boyd, a Coastal Policy Analyst for the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council. He will discuss new online tools to understand how coastal flooding from storm surge and sea level rise will impact East Bay communities.

Free and open to all.

Remarkable Women of Rhode Island by Frank L. Grzyb and Russell J. DeSimone
Published by The History Press, July 2014

Rhode Island proudly claims a long list of remarkable women throughout history, from pioneering education reformers and suffragettes to trailblazing athletes and authors. In the mid-1800s, Sarah Helen Whitman became a prominent female poet and nearly married Edgar Allan Poe. In 1922, Isabelle Ahearn O’Neil became the first woman to hold office in the Rhode Island legislature. In the 1940s, Wilma Briggs became the first woman in the state to play on a local high school boys’ baseball team and went on to join the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.

Meet authors Frank L. Grzyb and Russell J. DeSimone in this captivating and insightful account that spans five centuries of women who made history in the smallest state in the nation.

Free and open to all. Books will be for sale and signing at the event.

Meet author Doug Most who returns to his hometown for a special visit to Barrington Public Library to speak about his book The Race Underground: Boston, New York, and the Incredible Rivalry That Built America's First Subway. 

In the late nineteenth century, as cities like Boston and New York grew more congested, the streets became clogged with plodding, horse-drawn carts. When the great blizzard of 1888 crippled the entire northeast, a solution had to be found. Two brothers from one of the nation's great families—Henry Melville Whitney of Boston and William Collins Whitney of New York—pursued the dream of his city digging America's first subway, and the great race was on. The competition between Boston and New York played out in an era not unlike our own, one of economic upheaval, life-changing innovations, class warfare, bitter political tensions, and the question of America’s place in the world.

The Week rates The Race Underground as "1 of 18 books to read in 2014." It was named a Best Book of the Month by Amazon. First published in February 2014 in hardcover. The paperback edition is scheduled to be released in February 2015.

Most grew up in Barrington and now lives in Needham, Massachusetts. He works at The Boston Globe as deputy managing editor for features.  He is the author of Always in Our Hearts: The Story of Amy Grossberg, Brian Peterson, the Pregnancy They Hid and the Child They Killed. He has written for Sports IllustratedRunner's World and Parents and his stories have appeared in Best American Crime Writing and Best American Sports Writing.

Books will be for sale and signing at the event.

Do you have slips of paper with titles of "must-read" books on it?  Do you have a stack of books on your nightstand?  Do you carry an eReader or print book around with you to sneak in a chapter between errands?  Do you have multiple bookcases that still don't fit all of your collection?  Do you listen to an audiobook rather than the radio?  If any of those scenarios sound familiar, join your fellow bibliophiles as we talk about our favorite reads over a cup of coffee!  We meet every first Monday of the month from 10am-11:30am, and new members are always welcome!
