The Talent Show from the Black Lagoon by Mike Thaler

The kids have to perform in the talent show just because mean Mrs. Green says so! Everyone will have to show a talent for exactly one minute in front of the whole school and their parents. Starring in the talent show from the Black Lagoon would give any kid stage fright, but with a little luck, this performance might just turn out to be fun!

The Library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families. For grades 2-3. Please register here or at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book.

Eleven by Patricia Reilly Giff

Sam is almost eleven when he discovers a locked box in the attic above his grandfather’s room and a piece of paper that says he was kidnapped. There are lots of other words, but Sam has always had trouble reading. Sam is desperate to find out who he and his grandfather are. At night he’s haunted by dreams of a big castle and a terrifying escape on a boat. Who can he trust to help him read the documents that could unravel the mystery? He and the new girl, Caroline, are paired up to work on a school project building a castle. Caroline loves to read and she can help, but she’s moving soon, and the two must hurry to discover the truth about Sam.

    Contact: Gail Brown   765-2791   gail.brown@voorpl.org
   

Read and discuss Lois Lowry’s semi-autobiographical Autumn Street as a family. We are excited to have the opportunity to attend “The Creative Life: A Conversation Series at UAlbany” featuring the award-winning and leading voice of children’s literature, Lois Lowry. We will discuss the book, share a meal provided by the Library, and, for those who wish to attend, venture to Page Hall to hear Lois Lowry in person at 7:00 pm! For children in grades 5-9 and their parents/caregivers. Please register and pick up a book at the Information Desk.

There are things to be afraid of in the woods at the end of Autumn Street. But, the year Elizabeth goes to live in her grandfather's big house while her father is fighting in World War II, she can't put a name to those dark, shadowy fears. Elizabeth finds solace in her friendship with Charles, a boy who teaches her to take risks. Together the two children try to interpret an adult world that is always puzzling and often cruel.  On a day when snow obscures everything but terror, they leave that world behind and enter the world that is waiting in the woods. What do they find?

    Contact: Michele Reilly   518-765-2791   michele.reilly@voorpl.org
   

 

Today’s baby boomers can expect to live longer in their retirement years due to rapid advances in science, medicine and technology in comparison to previous generations. As a result, the concern over the possibility of increased longevity is causing a major paradigm shift in how people view and prepare for their retirement.

In particular, the timing of when to claim one’s Social Security benefits was once a simple decision and now requires advanced planning and a coordinated strategy. For many retirees and their spouses, taking the time to properly evaluate this important financial decision can be a major step toward a more comfortable retirement.

The program seeks to explore retirement from a time perspective as well as the impact of longevity in order to help attendees (ages 55+) make a more informed decision before choosing when to claim their Social Security benefits. Topics covered include recent changes in legislation, why Social Security is crucial to women, avoiding frequent claiming mistakes and the best way to maximize benefits.

The workshop is sponsored by Retirement Solutions, LLC and is open to the general public. There is no cost to attend. Advanced registration is required. Light refreshments will served.

Image result for veteransThose who have served our country and continue to serve have some incredible stories to tell. Join us for the sharing of stories from Veterans and active military members who have been interviewed by students and Scouts as a way to learn and to honor their service. The young interviewers will introduce the Veteran or active military member in an audio-visual presentation. Where did you serve? What kind of food did you eat? What was your job in the military? What did you like to do in your down time? These and other questions will be answered in an effort to understand the life of our men and women in uniform and to appreciate the sacrifices that have been made. Rob Spohr, who was deployed to Iraq in 2004 and later served in the NY National Guard, will be sharing his experiences as the Program Assistant for Songwriting with Soldiers, whose mission is to transform lives by using collaborative songwriting by pairing professional musicians with Veterans to tell their stories through song.  Local author and Iraqi Veteran, Ryan Smithson, will speak about his time in the Army Corps of Engineers and about his passion for helping other Veterans tell their story. His book, Ghosts of War, will be available for purchase.

This program is open to the public. Light fare will be served. Registration requested.

Lincoln Center at the Movies presents 

George Balanchine's The Nutcracker New York City Ballet

Experience the wonder of New York City Ballet's iconic holiday classic on the big screen. In George Balanchine's The Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky's beloved melodies transport the young and young at heart to a magical world where mischievious mice besiege a battalion of toy soldiers, and an onstage blizzard leads to an enchanted Land of Sweets. Balanchine's stunning choreography shines amidst awe-inspiring set pieces, ornate costumes, and grand one-of-a-kind visual effects, like the one-ton Christmas tree that grows to an astonishing 40 feet. The New York City Ballet's beloved production has been performed in New York City every year since its premiere on February 2, 1954, and is seen live by more than 100,000 people annually.

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

At the dawn of the twentieth century, a great confidence suffused America. Isaac Cline was one of the era's new men, a scientist who believed he knew all there was to know about the motion of clouds and the behavior of storms. The idea that a hurricane could damage the city of Galveston, Texas, where he was based, was to him preposterous, "an absurd delusion." It was 1900, a year when America felt bigger and stronger than ever before. Nothing in nature could hobble the gleaming city of Galveston, then a magical place that seemed destined to become the New York of the Gulf.

Please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book (cost $5.00).

The Two-Family House by Lynda Cohen Loigman

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

In this wake-up call for general readers and undergraduate students, environmental journalist Joel K. Bourne argues that climate change could make it impossible to feed the growing global population in the next 40 years. The accessible narrative takes general readers around the world to meet individuals, families, activists, and agricultural innovators in small and large farms and research projects. The book’s engaging style, larger type, and black and white photos offer further appeal. Author Bourne has written for National Geographic, Audubon, Science, and Outside. He holds a BS in agronomy and a MS in journalism. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

At the center of Mountains Beyond Mountains stands Paul Farmer. Doctor, Harvard Professor, renowned infectious-disease specialist, anthropologist, the recipient of a MacArthur "genius" grant, world-class Robin Hood, Farmer was brought up in a bus and on a boat, and in medical school found his life's calling: to diagnose and cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. This book shows how radical change can be fostered in situations that seem insurmountable, and it also shows how a meaningful life can be created, as Farmer - brilliant, charismatic, charming, both a leader in international health and a doctor who finds time to make house calls in Boston and the mountains of Haiti - blasts through convention to get results.

Please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book (cost $5.00).
