A Novel Idea: Teen Book Club
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Youth age 13+ are welcome to join us for the teen book club! 

This month we will be discussing Scythe by Neal Shusterman! Copies of the book will be available in the children's room in March. 

Snacks will be served! Registration is required.

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

Registration is required. Please reserve your seat here.

NEW Open Studio Makerspace
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

The APL is offering a new Process Art program for kids ages 3-6 years and their adults!  Process art is all about the experience the children have while they’re creating. If it has a nice end product, that’s great, but the end product is NOT the focus of process art. 

On Saturday afternoons we will offer a variety of materials for you to create anything you would like.  Some weeks it will be art supplies, some weeks it will be cardboard building & some weeks it will be technology.  NO NEED TO REGISTER—just drop in during the 90 minutes and get ready to create! 

The Open Studio Makerspace is brought to you with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners

Viniyoga with Barbara Barlow
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The Viniyoga method of yoga is based on the deep relationship between breath and movement, experiencing yoga from the inside out and providing a sound approach to practicing yoga postures. This class will focus on the adaptation of the practice to the individual. It begins with breath movement, allowing the student to develop a length of breath that is most appropriate.  The postures are based on repetition and stay.  The student will move in and out of a posture 4 to 5 times and then hold the posture for a short period of time using the movement of the breath for  4 to 5 complete cycles of Inhaling and Exhaling.  This tradition allows the student to gain mobility and strength. The postures will include variations to allow the student to adapt to the movement that is appropriate for them. 

Participants should bring water, a mat, a large towel/blanket for cushioning and comfort, and a block if they have one.

Registrants will sign up for each week individually. Please register here.

A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro
6:30 PM

The Greater Attleboro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition (GAASPC) is sponsoring "A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro". This grief support group is for suicide loss survivors and will be facilitated by Lisa Jo Megna Mitchell.

"Grief comes in many forms. There's no "one size fits all." The Kitchen Table Conversations are coordinated by Safe Place certified facilitators under the auspices of the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. This get-together is open to anyone 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one/friend/co-worker, etc., who died by suicide.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."

Our monthly book discussion led by Trish Ferrara. We will be reading The Alchemist’s Daughter by Katherine McMahon. We'd love to have you join us!

During the English Age of Reason, a woman cloistered since birth learns that knowledge is no substitute for experience. Raised by her father in near isolation in the English countryside, Emilie Selden is trained as a brilliant natural philosopher and alchemist. In the spring of 1725, father and daughter embark upon their most daring alchemical experiment to date attempting to breathe life into dead matter. But when Emilie against her father s wishes experiences the passion of first love, she is banished to London, where she soon discovers she knows nothing about human nature or her own family's complicated past. So begins her shocking journey to enlightenment.

Book Hungry Sock Monkeys Middle School Book Club

Youth in grades 5-8 are welcome to join us for the middle school book club! This month we will be discussing the graphic novel, Sisters by Raina Telgemeier. Raina can't wait to be a big sister. But once Amara is born, things aren't quite how she expected them to be. Amara is cute, but she's also a cranky, grouchy baby, and mostly prefers to play by herself. Their relationship doesn't improve much over the years. But when a baby brother enters the picture, and later, when something doesn't seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all.
 
Copies of the book will be available in the children's room in April. Snacks will be served at the meeting! Registration is required, click here to register

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The Viniyoga method of yoga is based on the deep relationship between breath and movement, experiencing yoga from the inside out and providing a sound approach to practicing yoga postures. This class will focus on the adaptation of the practice to the individual. It begins with breath movement, allowing the student to develop a length of breath that is most appropriate.  The postures are based on repetition and stay.  The student will move in and out of a posture 4 to 5 times and then hold the posture for a short period of time using the movement of the breath for  4 to 5 complete cycles of Inhaling and Exhaling.  This tradition allows the student to gain mobility and strength. The postures will include variations to allow the student to adapt to the movement that is appropriate for them. 

Participants should bring water, a mat, a large towel/blanket for cushioning and comfort, and a block if they have one.

Registrants will sign up for each week individually. Please register here.

A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro
6:30 PM

The Greater Attleboro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition (GAASPC) is sponsoring "A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro". This grief support group is for suicide loss survivors and will be facilitated by Lisa Jo Megna Mitchell.

"Grief comes in many forms. There's no "one size fits all." The Kitchen Table Conversations are coordinated by Safe Place certified facilitators under the auspices of the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. This get-together is open to anyone 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one/friend/co-worker, etc., who died by suicide.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."

Parent/Caregiver workshop: Opening a world of words!
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

We see Environmental Print everywhere. We see logos and signs in our daily lives. But as adults we don’t consider it real “reading”.  However, Environmental Print is the first print a child learns to “read”. How many times have you driven by a McDonald’s restaurant with your child in the car and he has shouted “Look! McDonald’s!”? When children are excited about reading, and print holds meaning for them, they will learn much faster and begin to make connections to the world around them. In this workshop, parents will learn about some fun activities to do with their children anywhere, even during their daily commutes to bring language and the written word alive!

Please sign up here to let us know you're coming.

*This program can be used in conjunction with a Christmas is for Kids application.

This workshop is presented by Imajine That.  Imajine That staff are national trainers that provide education, coaching, mentoring and support to improve the skills and transform the perspectives of parents, educators, centers and schools to support the needs of children.

The Imajine That Parenting Workshops are brought to you with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

10:00 AM

Our monthly book discussion led by Trish Ferrara. We will be reading The Red Tent by Anita Diamant.  We'd love to have you join us!

Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters of the Book of Genesis that are about her father, Jacob, and his dozen sons. Told in Dinah's voice, this novel reveals the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood--the world of the red tent. It begins with the story of her mothers--Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah--the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that sustain her through a hard-working youth, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land. Dinah's story reaches out from a remarkable period of early history and creates an intimate connection with the past.

A thrilling narrative of the climactic end stage of the Pacific War, focusing on the U.S. invasion of the Mariana Islands in June 1944 and the momentous events that it triggered. With its thunderous assault into Japan's inner defensive perimeter, America crossed the threshold of total war. From the seaborne invasion of Saipan to the stunning aerial battles of the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot, to the largest banzai attack of the war and the strategic bombing effort that led to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Marianas became the fulcrum of the drive to compel Tokyo to surrender with consequences that forever changed modern war.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."

Preventing Elder Financial Abuse
4:30 PM

Tonight we welcome Gabriela Vieira, Vice President, Banking Center Manager, Webster Bank who will present a workshop on elder financial abuse. Tonight's program is sponsored by the Attleboro Council on Aging.

The incidence of financial exploitation of elders and vulnerable adults is growing nationally. Fraudulent telemarketing schemes and unscrupulous scam artists increasingly target elders, resulting in significant financial losses. In addition, loved and trusted family members too often make illegal and improper use of resources, resulting in emotional and financial damage that is devastating. Elders and vulnerable adults are left unable to pay for their basic daily needs, including housing, food, critical utilities and medications, and are traumatized by this victimization.

To aid in early identification and prevention of elder financial exploitation and fraud and assist elders to remain safely in the community, Massachusetts has developed two community collaborations: the Massachusetts Bank Reporting Project and the Money Management Program.   This workshop will provide an overview of the signs and symptoms of financial exploitation and fraud, and simple strategies for protecting one's assets. 

Please R.S.V.P. at the Attleboro Council on Aging number listed below.

This month we will be reading Winston's War: Churchill, 1940-1945 by Max Hastings.

Beginning in 1940, when popular demand elevated Churchill to the role of prime minister, and concluding with the end of the war, Hastings shows us Churchill at his most intrepid and essential, when, by sheer force of will, he kept Britain from collapsing in the face of what looked like certain defeat. Later, we see his significance ebb as the United States enters the war and the Soviets turn the tide on the Eastern Front. But Churchill, Hastings reminds us, knew as well as anyone that the war would be dominated by others, and he managed his relationships with the other Allied leaders strategically, so as to maintain Britain’s influence and limit Stalin’s gains.

At the same time, Churchill faced political peril at home, a situation for which he himself was largely to blame. Hastings shows how Churchill nearly squandered the miraculous escape of the British troops at Dunkirk and failed to address fundamental flaws in the British Army. His tactical inaptitude and departmental meddling won him few friends in the military, and by 1942, many were calling for him to cede operational control. Nevertheless, Churchill managed to exude a public confidence that brought the nation through the bitter war.
