JANUARY'S BOOK: Something Missing by Matthew Dicks

A career criminal with OCD tendencies and a savant-like genius for bringing order to his crime scenes, Martin considers himself one of the best in the biz. After all, he’s been able to steal from the same people for years on end—virtually undetected. Of course, this could also be attributed to his unique business model—he takes only items that will go unnoticed by the homeowner. After all, who in their right mind would miss a roll of toilet paper here, a half-used bottle of maple syrup there, or even a rarely used piece of china buried deep within a dusty cabinet?

    Contact: Leah Farrell   860-673-6791   lfarrell@farmingtonlibraries.org
   

The Alturas Duo has been recognized as one of the most engaging ensembles performing in the chamber music world today. The only group of its kind, the Duo was formed with the idea of playing South American and classical music by bringing together the unusual combination of the viola, charango and guitar, and in doing so, creating passionate music that moves at ease between the Baroque, South American folk rhythms and new pieces written especially for the Duo. The performances of Scott Hill (guitar) and Carlos Boltes (charango and viola) oscillate from the beautiful and serene to strong and pulsating, taking audiences on a journey to new musical heights.

Please register.


This event is made possible by Richard P. Garmany through a grant awarded by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. The Farmington Libraries will be hosting a variety of performances throughout the year as part of the Richard P. Garmany Music Series.

Attention Parents, Grandparents, Foster Parents, and Caregivers: This is 6-week class is for you!

At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what is might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you.  The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.

Using the COS-P model developed by the Circle of Security® originators, our trained facilitator work with parents and caregivers to help them to:

  • Understand their child's emotional world by learning to read emotional needs
  • Support their child's ability to successfully manage emotions
  • Enhance the development of their child's self-esteem
  • Honor the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be secure

Wednesdays, March 14 – April 18, 6:30 p.m. Please register for this 6-week class on the March 14 date.
