misc_none 10:00 AM  -  3:00 PM Library Crawl Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Rebecca Meehan   7819330148   rmeehan@minlib.net
   

On Saturday, October 21st, eight libraries, across three library networks, including the Woburn Public Library, are banding together to put on a Library Crawl.  From 10AM - 3PM, library enthusiasts are invited to take a self-guided tour of other area libraries and see what they have to offer their communities.  The Library Crawl includes a scavenger hunt of each library’s unique features, prizes (while supplies last), and light refreshments. 

Here’s how it works: 

  • Start at any participating library and get your Library Crawl passport and scavenger hunt list. 
  • Visit a library, get your passport stamped and take a photo of the scavenger hunt item (extra karma points if you tag it #LibraryCrawl, the name of owning library, and upload it to social media. You can tag the Woburn Public Library #woburnlibrary on Facebook and Twitter).  
  • After you visit your fourth library and show your stamps and scavenger hunt photos to the designated staff member, and you can claim your prize (while supplies last).
The participating libraries are: Robbins Library and the Fox Branch Library (Arlington), Flint Memorial Library (North Reading), Reading Public Library, Lucius Beebe Memorial Library (Wakefield), Wilmington Memorial Library, Winchester Public Library, and the Woburn Public Library (temporarily located during construction at 36 Cummings Park, Woburn).

Tickets are free, but space is limited.  Reserve your tickets online here, or you can pick up a paper ticket at the library’s temporary space at 36 Cummings Park in Woburn.

About the film:

I Am Not Your Negro is as much a work of art as it an up-to-the-minute examination of race in America. James Baldwin died in 1987, leaving 30 pages of an unfinished manuscript behind. Filmmaker Raul Peck uses Baldwin’s original words and a flood of rich archival material to complete the story Baldwin started. Following the screening, we’ll be joined by two scholars to unpack the the themes and ideas presented in the film.

About our speakers:

Tracy Heather Strain is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, writer, and producer. Her previous directing credits include episodes of miniseries “Unnatural Causes” and “I’ll Make Me a World: A Century of African-American Arts,” and episodes of PBS’ “American Experience” and “Race: The Power of an Illusion.” Strain is also the president and CEO of Boston-based media company The Film Posse, which she runs with her husband, Randall MacLowry.  Her new film“Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart”(which tells the story of artist/activist Lorraine Hansberry), premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival this past September.

D. Quentin Miller is professor and chair of English at Suffolk University, a James Baldwin Scholar, and a regular contributer to WBUR’s Ideas and Opinions blog, Cognoscenti. His most recent book (no out in paperback) is “A Criminal Power: James Baldwin and the Law.”
