Join us for reading adventures at Pre-K Storytimers!! We will read stories, play games, do crafts, and have oodles of fun.
This program geared at children who are 3 to 5 years old, and the program may be held outside during nice weather.
In this hands-on, 6 week class, local filmmaker, and professional animator, Tim Smyth, will teach the art of visual storytelling. As a group, students will conceive, plan, perform in, and film, a short movie, or two. The movies will be no longer than 4 minutes, and will rely on visuals, instead of sound, to tell their stories. Using the limitations of VHS-C cameras, students will have to think more about how movies are made, as they will shoot their movies in script order, editing in camera, as they go. There will be no later fixing in the computer. It will be a fun exercise in having to go without modern conveniences. Without the use of dialog, or sound in any way, students will discover what a truly visual medium movies can be. The first 6 classes will be spent making the movies, the 7th and final class day will be a premier for family and friends, as the finished movies will be shown in glorious VHS.
For those in grades 6-12
Are you wondering if you should take the SAT®? What are the tips and strategies to master it? Can these tests help you get a scholarship? What about test optional schools?

Join author and Haverhill resident Peter Clenott for a talk about his new novel, The Unwanted!
In September 1939, the Nazis have just invaded Poland. Fourteen-year-old Hana Ziegler is being taken by her grandfather and psychiatrist to a euthanasia center. Sixteen-year-old Silke Hartenstein graces the covers of Nazi propaganda magazines. Avi Kreisler, a detective in the Munich Police Department, is being rounded up to be imprisoned in Dachau. The patrician father of Charlie McAuliffe intends upon seeing his eldest son the first Catholic president of the United States.
In The Unwanted, in the aftermath of war, revenge will bring these four people together in ways unimagined.
