Parent Coffee: Tips for supporting your teen academically

As teenagers go through middle and high school and become more independent, figuring out how to support them through school can be confusing. Should I help with homework? How much structure do they need? How can I advocate for them with the school? How do I navigate my child’s ADHD or executive functioning challenges? This workshop will help answer some of these questions.

Eliza Wagner Srestha of ES Tutoring & Consulting, a veteran educator with 17 years of teaching experience and an Ed.M. in Curriculum and Teaching, will help you understand how to navigate the ups and downs of the middle and high school years as your child learns to be more independent. We will talk about low-conflict ways to be involved in your child’s homework, how to understand your child’s learning style, how to create structure without stifling, the connection between self-esteem and academic performance, how technology can help and hinder learning, and how to create opportunities for healthy dialogue with your teen.

Come join us for coffee and conversation on Saturday October 21 at 10:30am.

Open to parents and students in grades 6 to 12. Please register below.

Nonfiction Book Club

Join our newest book club at the library! This book club will focus on nonfiction works. This month's title is Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah. "Trevor Noah's unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show began with a criminal act: his birth. Trevor was born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Living proof of his parents' indiscretion, Trevor was kept mostly indoors for the earliest years of his life, bound by the extreme and often absurd measures his mother took to hide him from a government that could, at any moment, steal him away. Finally liberated by the end of South Africa's tyrannical white rule, Trevor and his mother set forth on a grand adventure, living openly and freely and embracing the opportunities won by a centuries-long struggle. Born a Crime is the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist." Please register below.

Teen Writing Workshop w/guest author

Join us for our monthly Teen Writing Workshop! This month we will have special guest author Katie Bayerl in to host! When Katie Bayerl isn’t penning stories, she coaches teens and nonprofits to tell theirs. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts and has taught creative writing in schools and a variety of community settings. She currently leads the VCFA Young Writers Network and teaches classes for teens at GrubStreet. Katie has an incurable obsession with saints, bittersweet ballads, and murder. A Psalm for Lost Girls (spring 2017, Putnam) is her first novel.

This month, Katie will be showing us how to do "story sparks"--i.e., the personal interests and experiences that can feed our fiction and what happens when we link up two or more "sparks" into one story idea. Join us!

This workshop is free and open to grades 6 to 12. Please register below.

Library Concert: Ragtime Jack

Mansfield Library warmly welcomes Ragtime Jack to perform at the library for a FREE concert on Thursday October 26 at 6:30pm. Don't miss out!

He’s ‘Ragtime’ Jack Radcliffe, and you don’t want to miss him when he comes to town. Now a resident of Massachusetts, with roots in Virginia and Tennessee, Jack, brings his piano, guitar, fiddle, voice, wit and wisdom with him wherever he goes. Jack has been performing for more than 40 years. He was a fixture on the coffeehouse circuit in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. His band 'The New Viper Revue' pushed the genre envelopes of blues, folk, country, rock 'n' roll and jazz from 1972 -1976. Jack resumed his solo career in 1977, then teamed up with reed player Al Oliveira in 1983, as half of “The World’s Smallest Big Jazz Band.” Jack was inducted into the Old-Time Music Association Hall of Fame in 2014. Jack’s performances always include a lot of uplifting wit, historical anecdotes and connections with local lore, wherever he performs. His background in journalism amplifies a lifelong quest for the cultural framework of his music and the places he performs.

This program is open to all ages.

Cornucopia, Candy & Christmas Trees: An Ornament-Making Workshop

Join us for this free workshop to make your very own ornament on Saturday November 4 at 11am. Well until the early 1900's, the Christmas tree was decorated with candies, cookies, gilded walnuts, oranges and other homemade ornaments. A particular favorite, however, was the cornucopia, a cone-shaped ornament filled with candy. Rita Parisi, from Waterfall Productions, will instruct everyone on how to create a cornucopia of their own. She will provide all the materials so that each person can make one ornament to take home.

Space is limited. Open to ages 5 and up. Please register below.

This month we will be discussing The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick. 

"Sixty-nine-year-old Arthur Pepper lives a simple life. He gets out of bed at precisely 7:30 a.m., just as he did when his wife, Miriam, was alive. He dresses in the same gray slacks and mustard sweater vest, waters his fern, Frederica, and heads out to his garden. But on the one-year anniversary of Miriam's death, something changes. Sorting through Miriam's possessions, Arthur finds an exquisite gold charm bracelet he's never seen before. What follows is a surprising and unforgettable odyssey that takes Arthur from London to Paris and as far as India in an epic quest to find out the truth about his wife's secret life before they met--a journey that leads him to find hope, healing and self-discovery in the most unexpected places."

New Members are always welcome!

This month we will be discussing Bear Town by Fredrik Backman. 

"People say Beartown is finished. A tiny community nestled deep in the forest, it is slowly losing ground to the ever encroaching trees. But down by the lake stands an old ice rink, built generations ago by the working men who founded this town. And in that ice rink is the reason people in Beartown believe tomorrow will be better than today. Their junior ice hockey team is about to compete in the national semi-finals, and they actually have a shot at winning. All the hopes and dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys. Being responsible for the hopes of an entire town is a heavy burden, and the semi-final match is the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown, leaving no resident unaffected."

New Members are always welcome!

"The Curies' newly discovered element of radium makes gleaming headlines across the nation as the fresh face of beauty, and wonder drug of the medical community. From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War. Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these "shining girls" are the luckiest alive -- until they begin to fall mysteriously ill."

"Northern California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged--a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence."
