Story Walk @ Balfour Riverwalk Park
 Tuesday through Friday of April vacation, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM (weather permitting). 
Mrs. Brown and staff from the Project Connect Family Center worked together to present a story walk in the Attleboro community.  
Stop by the Balfour Riverwalk Park to take a stroll and read a story.  
Weather permitting, pages of a story will be posted around the walking path in the Riverwalk,
and as families walk the path, they can stop at each post to read some of the story.  
This time around, the story will be "I Love Our Earth" in both English and Spanish.

Girl Scout Troop 905 is taking donations at APL for "Project Undercover" now through the end of April. Bring your donations of NEW undergarments to help someone in need. Donations may include (but are not limited to) socks, underwear, bras, pull-ups, diapers, and boxers of any size.

Kids of all ages (up to 14 years old) are invited to make an appointment to read to a certified therapy dog! Reading to a nonjudgmental, patient listener can give children the encouragement they need to improve their reading skills. The child’s confidence will grow in this relaxed environment.  

Kids read in 20 minute increments and the only 
requirement is that the child MUST be able to read (beginning readers are welcome). To make an appointment for your child, call the Children’s Room or email Mrs. Brown.

Join us for a discussion of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer

January 1946: writer Juliet Ashton receives a letter from a stranger, a founding member of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. And so begins a remarkable tale of the island of Guernsey during the German occupation, and of a society as extraordinary as its name.
 
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society—born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island—boasts a charming, funny, deeply human cast of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature lovers all.

Discussion led by Jillian Amaral, Reader Services Coordinator.

Like reading WWII Non Fiction? We invite you to join our WWII Non Fiction Book Club.

This month we will be reading  Brothers In Arms: The Epic Story of the 761st Tank Batallion, WWII's Forgotten Heroes by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. 

A powerful wartime saga in the bestselling tradition of Flags of Our Fathers, BROTHERS IN ARMS recounts the extraordinary story of the 761st "Black Panthers," the first all-black armored unit to see combat in World War II. The racism that shadowed them during the war and the prejudice they faced upon their return home is an indelible part of their story. What shines through most of all, however, are the lasting bonds that united them as soldiers and brothers, the bravery they exhibited on the battlefield, and the quiet dignity and patriotism that defined their lives.

misc_none 6:30 PM Too Human Performing at APL!   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Boenel Records recording artists, Too Human, will be performing here tonight.

Whether performing breezy, jazzy, toe tapping swing, a bluesy, heartfelt ballad, or a familiar standard from the American Songbook, Too Human will move you with their music.  With guitar, percussion and vocals, they have a jazzy / bluesy feel with a lot of heart.  Their original songs touch on many topics all related to the human condition.  And they will bring back fond memories with songs like "Pennies From Heaven," "It Had To Be You," "I've Got A Crush On You" and many others from the 30s and 40s.  Ellen's earthy voice combines perfectly with Roger's unusual percussion style and sweet vocals.  High quality musicianship with humor and passion, totally in sync with each other, they create a strong and intimate atmosphere.  As one reviewer has said, “Singing with passion and joy ... Too Human put smiles on our faces.”   

They have two live CDs, Live On Tour, with more originals and  Standards Live, with an upright bass doing a selection of Jazz Standards from the American Songbook, and a new CD, More Standards. Selections of Too Human's CDs may be heard on their website, www.toohumanonline.com 

This program is sponsored in part by a grant from the Attleboro Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Kids of all ages (up to 14 years old) are invited to make an appointment to read to a certified therapy dog! Reading to a nonjudgmental, patient listener can give children the encouragement they need to improve their reading skills. The child’s confidence will grow in this relaxed environment.  

Kids read in 20 minute increments and the only 
requirement is that the child MUST be able to read (beginning readers are welcome). To make an appointment for your child, call the Children’s Room or email Mrs. Brown.

New England Notebook: One Reporter, Six States, Uncommon Stories

An Evening with journalist and author Ted Reinstein

 __________________________________________________________________________

Ted Reinstein is a longtime, award-winning reporter for “Chronicle,” Boston’s celebrated—and the nation’s longest-running—nightly TV newsmagazine.  In June, 2013, Globe Pequot Press released his first book, a collection of Ted’s most memorable and favorite stories drawn from over fifteen years of reporting from every corner of New England.  His talk itself will run approx. 50-minutes and covers, as Ted puts it, “the best of the best—my all-time most favorite people and places in New England.”  The talk will be highlighted with photos, many the work of some of the region’s most talented and successful photographers, and all featured in the book.  Following the talk, Ted will take questions from the audience.  At the conclusion of the Q&A session, Ted’s books will be on sale, and he will be happy to personally sign copies.
