In the Gallery: artist Michael William

Michael William creates small contemporary oil paintings in a loose realism style, his subjects centering around the familiar and the overlooked. He will be displaying a number of recent paintings available for sale at the Weston Library from Nov. 14th to Dec. 31st. An artists reception will be held in the library's Community Room Wednesday, November 28 from 6:00-8:00 PM. 

"My intentions for this work remain the same as when I began my Small Works series 6 years ago: to paint on a small scale, not spend more than a few days on each piece, and to choose subjects that are simple and, as a fellow painter once said in an interview, "foils for the real subject, which is light". I view these exercises as genuine expressions of the pleasure of seeing and consciously try not to imbue them with anymore than the innate beauty of the subject and the often simple but powerful emotions it has inspired in me. For me they represent placeholders for the stray observations and in-between moments throughout my past when I spotted a flower on the table at a favorite restaurant from years ago or noticed the way the sun fell onto the rug in an apartment I've since moved from.
They bring me back to those moments where something often overlooked moved me enough to want to capture it, and when reflecting
on them as a collection I feel a sense of peace and gain perspective on my life."
- Michael William

Baby Signing
1:30 PM - 2:15 PM

For infants two months and older and pre-verbal toddlers

Sign language is great to learn for all ages. It helps babies communicate, and it enhances early literacy skills for verbal children as well!  In this program, your child will learn sign language through songs, stories, games, play and more.  

Baby sign language, developed by Dr. Joseph Garcia, lets babies and toddlers communicate their needs to their caregivers, so they don’t need to cry or become frustrated.  During the first years of life, Infants and toddlers have a desire to communicate their needs and wants however, speech occurs after cognitive ability.

Baby sign language gives them the ability to communicate their needs and wishes, pre-verbal, without frustration, tears or tantrums. Babies and toddlers can learn signs important to their lifestyle such as “milk”, “more”, “sleep”, “eat”, “Mommy”, “Daddy” and so on.

Learning is at the infants own pace. Each individual infant develops the ability to sign at different stages in their growth.  For an infant to start signing, the infant must be able to focus on the hand movement and have the cognitive ability to make the connection than a sign is a gesture of something they need or want.

Benefits of Baby Sign Language

  • Reduces frustration for everyone
  • Deepens bonding between you and your baby
  • Gives babies the ability to express themselves before they can speak
  • Accelerates your babies development of speech
  • Increases child’s vocabulary
  • Relieves anxiety about your babies needs
  • Enhances early literacy skills
  • Ads visual and kinesthetic emphasis to auditory input
  • Lower noise levels and aggressive behaviors in childcare settings

Registration is required.  Please sign up at the Youth Services Desk.  The program will be held in the Storytime Room. 

(as an FYI, there is a program for older children that begins at 2:30, also in the Storytelling Room)

Book for the Babies
7:00 PM

Books for the Babies is an initiative by Weston High School student Aidan Chen to support the March of Dimes' mission to improve the health of premature babies and advocates for their future literacy.

During the first year, Books for the Babies raised enough funds to donate hundreds of board books to the families caring for their premature babies in the NICU at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston. Studies show that despite being one of the richest countries in the world, the United States is experiencing an increase in the number of preterm births. In addition, preterm infants who are not exposed to language while in the new-natal intensive care unit, sometimes for many weeks. have lower language performance at age two.

Aiden hopes that this initiative can give these babies a stronger start on a life-long journey of literacy with gifts of baby board books that parents can read to their baby in the NICU and then take home with them.

Opera for Everyone: Carmen
3:00 PM

More than any other art form, opera is meant to appeal directly to the senses. All you need are eyes, ears, and a soul to appreciate opera. Carmen, the most famous of Bizet's operas, with its exotic Spanish setting, introduced a note of realism into opera that proved unacceptable to many who saw the first performances. Speaker Erika Reitshamer is an engaging teacher whose knowledge and love of opera will inspire all, and her open style and sense of humor are irrestistible. She has lectured on opera and great singers of opera for many years and was active in the formation of the Boston Lyric Opera more than 40 years ago. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is free and open to all.

Butterfly: the life and times of James McNeil Whistler

The play ends with an explanation of how it was he came to paint the iconic portrait of his mother. Collins is a classically-trained actor who has performed in many productions.
