As the countdown to the New Year begins, Oona faints and awakens thirty-two years in the future in her fifty-one-year-old body. Greeted by a friendly stranger in a beautiful house she’s told is her own, Oona learns that with each passing year she will leap to another age at random. And so begins Oona Out of Order...

People of the First Light: A Presentation by Annawon Weeden (Ages 5 and up)
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Registration is required!

This is a live program!

Drawing on his Mashpee Wamanoag, Narragansett, and Pequot lineage, Mr. Weeden will share his tribal culture and history. Families will see the construction of a shelter, listen to some traditional storytelling, play a game, and make a cornhusk action figure. The audience will also have opportunities to ask questions about the Wampanoag tribe.

For decades, Mr. Weeden has shared his cultural knowledge with the public. He has worked at Plymouth Plantation as a museum interpreter and as a Native program at the Boston Children’s Museum and has made many school and library presentations. Mr. Weeden has also represented his tribe as an actor in films shown on National Geographic, PBS, and the History Channel.

Please note: Unvaccinated individuals (including children over the age of 5) should wear masks when they attend library programs. Parents, even if you're vaccinated, please wear a mask when you bring your kids to library events, for the safety of all children. You will also need to bring a blanket to sit on.

Parking: The library’s parking lot might be crowded for this event, so carpooling is a good idea if possible. If our lot is full, please use the parking area in front of the police department (across the street from the library) or park on High Street.

If your plans change after you register and you won’t be able to come to the program, please call us at 978-686-4080 x26 to cancel your registration so that children on the waiting list can take your place.

Porch Chats
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Looking for a little friendly conversation? Want to share something great you’ve read with others? Want to just sit on our front porch for a spell and have a listen? Then stop by the Nevins Library for our new Porch Chats, taking place on our front porch this summer. A librarian or two will chat up some great new books we have on the shelf, to get the conversation going. But where the conversation ends is up to you! This will be fun and very casual, and who knows where it might lead?

 

Please note: Unvaccinated individuals (including children over the age of 5) should wear masks when they attend library programs.
