It is a little known fact that Connecticut's witch hunt ever existed, let alone that it was the first and most ferocious in New England.  Connecticut holds the dark honor of carrying out young America's first witchcraft execution in1647, 45 years before Salem's first executions.  Connecticut also holds the dubious distinction of having a witch panic that spanned several decades versus Salem's seven months and ultimately a witch hunt that was proportionally much more deadly.  Ms. Boynton will discuss the towns, the people whose names became famous and forgotten during this frightening period, and the process of writing her book.

Registration is requested.

Each child will be given a 10-15 minute time slot to read to Payson. Payson, an Australian Shepherd, is a rescue dog who was found roaming the streets of Kentucky. She and Janet are registered with Therapy Dogs, Inc. and volunteer throughout the community.

This is a great opportunity for beginner or reluctant readers as well as experienced readers to build confidence, enhance their reading skills achieved during the school year, and encourage a love of reading. Participants are encouraged to stop by the Children’s Room to select a book with Payson’s “paw of approval” to share with her for the program.

The setting is New Breman, Minnesota during the summer of 1961.  While it is a time of innocence and hope for the country, for 13 year old Frank Drum it is a grim summer in which death visits frequently and assumes many forms.  Told from Frank’s perspective, 40 years after that fateful summer, this is the moving account of a boy standing at the door of manhood, trying to understand a world that seems to be falling apart around him.  Multiple copies of the book are available at the circulation desk. Participants are asked to bring a sandwich and a friend as they “chat and chew.”  Dessert and beverages will be provided.

Come play, learn and grow during this interactive program that includes play activities to foster developmental and social skills. Featuring a story, songs, rhymes, and more, Baby Steps is a wonderful opportunity for a parent/caregiver to bond with their young child through interactive play.  Older siblings are welcome to join us, but do not need to be registered.
