Teen filmmaking class - CANCELLED

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 two short simple movies. The movies will be no longer than 5 minutes, and will rely on visuals, instead of sound. It will be a fun exercise in having to go without modern conveniences of dialog, or sound, so that students will discover what a truly visual medium movies can be. The first day of class will be the intro to the equipment, and creating and planning of the stories to be filmed. The next 3 classes will be spent shooting the 2 chosen ideas. The 5’th class will be spent editing the movies on iPads, and the 6’th and final class will be a premiere of the finished movies, with family and friends, and anyone else who wants to come. Copies of the finished films will be emailed to each of the students.

Filming will ideally be done outside. All other classes will be held in the auditorium for adequate spacing. Masks are required. 

Registration required. At least 5 participants are needed to run the class.

Music Through the Decades

The Norman Rockwell Museum commissioned David Polansky to develop "Music Through The Decades," a fun filled hour in which the audience learns how the last hundred-plus years of American and world history have inspired so many of the songs we love.

Using keyboard, trumpet, and vocals, David presents the music of George M. Cohan, Fats Waller, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, and a host of others - music inspired by the advent of the automobile, the two world wars, the Roaring 20s, the Great Depression, the wild west, and much more.

David engages the audience, taking questions, performing requests, and telling very funny anecdotes about famous musicians as well as some about his own life as a musician.

A career musician, David has played with Sandler and Young, Phyllis Diller, Henny Youngman, Ray Bolger, Arthur Fiedler, The Platters, The Coasters....The list goes on and on.

This program is made possible through CARES Act funding to Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

This is a hybrid program. It will take place in the auditorium, with a Zoom stream available to offsite attendees. Please select to indicate whether you will be attending in person or virtually when registering.

To protect patrons and staff, we will require masks for all indoor programs. Masks are required for all patrons aged 2 or older, regardless of vaccination status.

Annawon Weeden: Understanding Indigenous Culture - Virtual

Courageous Conversations presents an online evening with Annawon Weeden, a member of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe.

Annawon will share and discuss Native American history in New England, cultural identity, contemporary lifeways and cultural appropriation. Born & raised on the Narragansett Tribal reservation in Charlestown, Rhode Island, Annawon eventually made his home in his mother’s Wampanoag community in Mashpee, MA. 

Annawon began sharing the culture of his tribes at a young age. As an adult, Annawon's passion for preserving the culture has been clear throughout decades spent working at Plimoth Plantation and Boston Children’s Museum. In October 2016, he received a Congressional honor as Culture Bearer for the entire New England region. 

Currently self-employed, Annawon dedicates much of his time to visiting colleges, museums, libraries, corporations and more, as he continues his efforts to correct misinformation and misrepresentation of indigenous people. His ability to share his tribal culture has been sought after by institutions such as the Smithsonian, National Geographic, Scholastic, PBS, the History/Discovery Channel, Nike, Harvard and many other corporate, educational and environmental organizations.

Join us to honor Indigenous People’s Day and take the opportunity to share in the Q&A during this informative evening.

This program is a collaboration of Courageous Conversations, Memorial Hall Library, Chelmsford Public Library, Haverhill Public Library, Stevens Memorial Library and Tewksbury Public Library.

LOCATION: Auditorium

Join 50+ year supernatural adventurer, author and broadcaster Paul Eno for a journey through the paranormal from prehistory to the planets and our future, with bizarre cases of ghosts, poltergeists, demons, cryptids, UFOs, and other mind-wrenching phenomena he and his son Ben have experienced personally. As seen on the Travel and History Channels, this world-famous father-and-son team have revealed bizarre connections not only between seemingly unrelated occurrences but also between the paranormal and our everyday lives, the history of our species, and our possible future as a race. Meet inter-world parasites that might be farming your family or community, encounter disappearing buildings, and ghosts of people who aren't dead. Push the boundaries as you find out what the Bible and other ancient documents might really mean, and what UFOs, invisible friends, and those footsteps in the attic could really be. Welcome to the multiverse, where explaining the paranormal is not the problem. It's handling the explanations. Everything you know is wrong.

This is a hybrid program. It will take place in the auditorium, with a Zoom stream available to offsite attendees. Please select to indicate whether you will be attending in person or virtually when registering.

To protect patrons and staff, we will require masks for all indoor programs. Masks are required for all patrons aged 2 or older, regardless of vaccination status.

Virtual Tabletop Guild

An ancient darkness is on the rise as the Virtual Tabletop Guild continues the Age of Ashes campaign for Pathfinder 2nd Edition!

Nestled in the foothills of the Five Kings Mountains, the quaint town of Breachill has a proud tradition of assembling groups of adventurers to handle tasks beyond the skill and scope of their humble guardsmen. When during this month's Call for Heroes a humble goblin scholar beseeches the town council to investigate the signals for help from an abandonned Hellknight citadel, will our adventurers be up for the task? What strange creatures and bygone mysteries will they find hidden beneath Hellknight Hill?

Participants may create their own 1st level characters for Pathfinder 2nd edition to play as, or use available pregenerated characters. If you have any questions about this process or the system, feel free to send me an email!

The meeting will be conducted virtually via Discord and the Foundry virtual tabletop program.

--For Adults (18+) only.

Registration is required. A link to the Foundry game will be sent at least 15 minutes prior to event start time.

Registrants must have a stable internet connection, a microphone (integrated, external, or headset) and headphones/earbuds.

If you are interested in this program but are unable to attend, I would like to hear from you! Please send me an email at mvalenzuela@haverhillpl.org with any questions or concerns regarding program scheduling and/or content.

Virtual Tabletop Guild

An ancient darkness is on the rise as the Virtual Tabletop Guild continues the Age of Ashes campaign for Pathfinder 2nd Edition!

Nestled in the foothills of the Five Kings Mountains, the quaint town of Breachill has a proud tradition of assembling groups of adventurers to handle tasks beyond the skill and scope of their humble guardsmen. When during this month's Call for Heroes a humble goblin scholar beseeches the town council to investigate the signals for help from an abandonned Hellknight citadel, will our adventurers be up for the task? What strange creatures and bygone mysteries will they find hidden beneath Hellknight Hill?

Participants may create their own 1st level characters for Pathfinder 2nd edition to play as, or use available pregenerated characters. If you have any questions about this process or the system, feel free to send me an email!

The meeting will be conducted virtually via Discord and the Foundry virtual tabletop program.

--For Adults (18+) only.

Registration is required. A link to the Foundry game will be sent at least 15 minutes prior to event start time.

Registrants must have a stable internet connection, a microphone (integrated, external, or headset) and headphones/earbuds.

If you are interested in this program but are unable to attend, I would like to hear from you! Please send me an email at mvalenzuela@haverhillpl.org with any questions or concerns regarding program scheduling and/or content.

Virtual Tabletop Guild

An ancient darkness is on the rise as the Virtual Tabletop Guild continues the Age of Ashes campaign for Pathfinder 2nd Edition!

Nestled in the foothills of the Five Kings Mountains, the quaint town of Breachill has a proud tradition of assembling groups of adventurers to handle tasks beyond the skill and scope of their humble guardsmen. When during this month's Call for Heroes a humble goblin scholar beseeches the town council to investigate the signals for help from an abandonned Hellknight citadel, will our adventurers be up for the task? What strange creatures and bygone mysteries will they find hidden beneath Hellknight Hill?

Participants may create their own 1st level characters for Pathfinder 2nd edition to play as, or use available pregenerated characters. If you have any questions about this process or the system, feel free to send me an email!

The meeting will be conducted virtually via Discord and the Foundry virtual tabletop program.

--For Adults (18+) only.

Registration is required. A link to the Foundry game will be sent at least 15 minutes prior to event start time.

Registrants must have a stable internet connection, a microphone (integrated, external, or headset) and headphones/earbuds.

If you are interested in this program but are unable to attend, I would like to hear from you! Please send me an email at mvalenzuela@haverhillpl.org with any questions or concerns regarding program scheduling and/or content.
