Dance Me a Story

NEW!! @ MFL

"Each class starts in a circle with a warm-up and gross-motor skills around the room.  The dance teacher 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.

For kids ages 2-5.  Older siblings may join.  REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED as space is LIMITED.

Join us on the 4th Tuesday of each month for this adult book  discussion that is open to all.  A different contemporary adult fiction and non-fiction book will be discussed at each meeting.

This month’s selection is: Little Heathens: Hard Times and High Spirits on an Iowa Farm During the Great Depression by Mildred Armstrong Kalish (2008) 
Little Heathens offers a loving but realistic portrait of a “hearty-handshake Methodist” family that gave its members a remarkable legacy of kinship, kindness, and remembered pleasures. Recounted in a luminous narrative filled with tenderness and humor, Kalish’s memoir of her childhood shows how the right stuff can make even the bleakest of times seem like “quite a romp.”

September's film is Lucky                                          LUCKY DVD & Online Streaming

Synopsis

How could a recently orphaned, 10-year old homeless South African boy ever be called Lucky? Over the grave of his dead mother, Lucky makes a promise to make something of himself. Leaving the security of his remote Zulu village for the big city with the hope of going to school, he arrives on the doorstep of an uncle who has no use for him. Lucky then falls in with Padma, an elderly Indian woman with an inherent fear of Africans, who takes him in as she would a stray dog. Together, unable to speak each other's language, they develop an unlikely bond. Through an odyssey marked by greed, violence, and, ultimately, belonging, Lucky shows how a child's spirit can bring out decency, humility and even love in adults struggling to survive in the new South Africa.

In Zulu, Hindi and English with English subtitles.

They dream in courtship, but in wedlock wake. - Alexander Pope

Most couples meet face to face before their courtship.  But there are other ways to meet the "Mr." or "Mrs" right.  What happens when you marry after a different kind of courtship?

 

A hundred years ago, Amina would have been called a mail-order bride. But this is an arranged marriage for the twenty-first century: Amina is wooed by—and woos—George Stillman online. For Amina, George offers a chance for a new life and a different kind of happiness than she might find back home. For George, Amina is a woman who doesn’t play games.

 

Copies of the book will be available at the circulation desk in the adult library beginning 8/12/2014.

Community Quilting Bee Sessions

Be Crafty and Help Your Library!

This Summer we at the Middletown Free Library will be learning to make yo-yos quilt pieces that will be sewed together to make a beautiful community quilt to be auctioned off to raise money for the Library.

The quilting pieces are very easy to make! We will be hosting weekly quilting sessions throughout the summer where you can come in and work on the quilt while socializing with your friends and fellow Library patrons.

You are also welcome to bring some fabric home with you to work on at home. It’s a perfect task to do while watching TV.

Monday afternoons @ 2 PM

 

Fabric, needles, and thread are provided, but donations are always appreciated! : )
