Odysseus: Revered, Reviled, and Still Relevant
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Heroine's Journey
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

The task of today's woman is to heal the wounded feminine that exists deep within herself and the culture.  Maureen Murdock, The Heroine's Journey.

Would you like to join me on a woman's mythic quest to heal the deep wounding of her feminine nature on a personal, cultural, and spiritual level in a supportive group of other women seekers and healers?How might your life have been different if there had been a place for you ... a place for women, where you were received and affirmed? A place where other women, perhaps somewhat older, had been affirmed before you, each in her time, affirmed, as she struggled to become more truly herself…   Judith Duerk

Pavlina Gatikova was born in the Czech Republic, yet she has been living in the United States for twenty years. She has taught ESL at the Attleboro Public Schools since 2007 and has been facilitating a monthly Attleboro Public Library Women's Journaling group for about 18 months. She's currently working on her first chapbook of poetry about her Czech roots while tending to wholeness.

All attendees will be entered into a free drawing for a copy of The Heroine's Journey by Maureen Murdock.

Salves, Potions and Healing Practices for Pain & Stress with Dr. Guo
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Dr Guo will explain the process used to create his 37 Healing Salve. Program will include information on other complementary healing practices, such as reiki, acupuncture, and massage. A small in-person audience will be permitted. Program will also be streamed live.


Dr. Jim Guo, an acupuncturist, chiropractor, and herbalist, invented the 37 Healing salve in 2014. He formulated this salve in response to a colleague's request for a natural herbal product to help symptoms related to sports injuries. Incorporating feedback from patients and colleagues, it took more than a year to perfect the formula.

Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Guo, all live attendees will receive free product samples.

15-Minute Family STEAM Activity

LEAF SCIENCE--Why do leaves change color?

This experiment is geared toward families with kids ages 3 & up.  Leaves contain Chlorophyll.  Chlorophyll makes the leaves green and is so dominant that it covers up all the other colors in the leaves. To figure out what color a leaf would be without the dominant chlorophyll color, we can separate the colors by doing this science experiment.

Registration for materials is required for each experiment you would like to try, limited quantities are available and will be reserved for those who have registered. Once your registration has been confirmed, library staff will work with participants to set up a time to pick up their experiment materials through scheduled Curbside Pick-up. Science materials can be picked up at the library Monday-Friday during the week that experiment is featured, only at pre-scheduled times. 

To register for a  materials kit, please email attleborokids@sailsinc.org or call 508-222-7820 during the week of September 14. The last day to register and schedule a pick up time for these materials will be Saturday September 19.

15-Minute Family STEAM Activity

LEAF SCIENCE--Why do leaves change color?

This experiment is geared toward families with kids ages 3 & up.  Leaves contain Chlorophyll.  Chlorophyll makes the leaves green and is so dominant that it covers up all the other colors in the leaves. To figure out what color a leaf would be without the dominant chlorophyll color, we can separate the colors by doing this science experiment.

Registration for materials is required for each experiment you would like to try, limited quantities are available and will be reserved for those who have registered. Once your registration has been confirmed, library staff will work with participants to set up a time to pick up their experiment materials through scheduled Curbside Pick-up. Science materials can be picked up at the library Monday-Friday during the week that experiment is featured, only at pre-scheduled times. 

To register for a  materials kit, please email attleborokids@sailsinc.org or call 508-222-7820 during the week of September 14. The last day to register and schedule a pick up time for these materials will be Saturday September 19.

Tuesday, November 3, 2pm-4pm

Fortnite Tournaments have been taken to the next level! See how you measure up against other local battle royale competitors in our Private Custom Matchmaking Tournament! Play right from the comfort of your own home on your own Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, or PC!

Helpful to have is a Discord account (free),  Discord is not 100% necessary but is the best form of communication for One Up to look to during the event.  If players want to talk to One Up, they can hear as it is streamed, but talking to One Up is limited to either the chat on the stream or via Discord.   Discord helps One Up to help troubleshoot with the player if they are having issues getting in.  As the minimum age for Discord is 13, Tweens & teens under 13 must have parental permission to access Discord

Registration is Required.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of Attleboro Public Library
