Learn the history of this 75 year "social experiment" - now recognized as our country's first Foster Care System - which transported an estimated 250,000 homeless children from the streets of New York City to farming communities of the Midwest in search of stable homes. This nearly lost piece of American history has piqued the interest of many readers after the release of the NY Times Bestseller, Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline.

Audiences will listen to the first person account of orphan train rider Oliver Nordmark as he recalls his experience of traveling with his brother from their NY orphanage to the small town of Bern, Kansas.

The presentation concludes with a discussion of the importance of journaling one's own story as a means of preserving social history. This program is presented by Donna Aviles, a member of the National Orphan Train Complex Speakers Bureau and the granddaughter of orphan train rider, Oliver Nordmark.

"Dance Me a Story"

Lead by Darlington Arts dance teacher Lisa Oster

Once a month Ms Lisa Oster comes to the library to get the kids dancing through a story to make them feel a part of it!

"Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room. Lisa uses dance terms throughout the class (plié, releve, passé, chasse). She also incorporates a bit of yoga in the warm up. Then each class features a story with movement and accompanying music. Class ends with Freeze dance into a cool down."

Parents stay in the room, but must keep conversations to minimum. Parents may join in if it helps their child but in general the kids participate on their own. Registration is required.

For ages 2-5 (younger/older siblings can join!)

We've reached the 1970s in our decade-by-decade look at great films that were nominated for Academy Awards but didn't win.

The China Syndrome (© Coumbia Pictures, 1979) is the white-knuckle thriller that was released just twelve days before the Three Mile Island partial nuclear meltdown. A reporter (Jane Fonda), a cameraman (Michael Douglas), and a nuclear plant supervisor (Jack Lemmon)  attempt to expose the terrifying truth about a facility where an accident could have wiped out Southern California. 

Four Academy Award nominations, including Best Actor in a Leading Role for Lemmon and Best Actress in a Leading Role for Fonda.

Rated PG.

This free program will be held in the library's 2nd floor meeting room. There is no elevator. Bring your sandwich (optional), and we'll provide beverages and dessert.

Registration is required. Please sign up here or call the library.
