Weston AIC Open Mic Night
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Due to a broken elevator in the Weston Town Hall, we have moved the January Open Mic Night to the Community Room in the Weston Public Library located at 87 School St in Weston. The event starts at 6:30pm as usual with pizza and a featured performer. We will, however, need to end at 9pm rather than 10pm.

Despite the change in venue, Open Mic Night continues to be a welcoming community event with performers of all ages encouraged to participate. If you're not a performer, you are most welcome to come enjoy an evening of music, song, and spoken word. Our host, Brenda Asis, creates a warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere for performers and audience members alike.

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.

The Library's Art Gallery in February

Alexandra Sheldon, an artist from Cambridge, spent several months painting in Weston in 2017/2018. She was entranced by the beautiful roads and trees. She was especially interested in the relationship between the rural and the infringement of the urban. Alexandra’s mother and stepfather had lived in Weston for years and returning to paint here was a nostalgic and lovely experience. The paintings will be up for the month of February at the Weston Public Library.

Butterfly: the life and times of James McNeil Whistler
3:00 PM

The Weston Public Library is pleased to welcome back acclaimed actor Stephen Colins, who will perform "Butterfly" by Carl A. Rossi, a one-man show about the life and times of James McNeil Whistler, the volatile American artist who struggled for artistic expression and personal freedom mostly in Victorian England. The play depicts Whistler at two phases of his life: first as a bankrupt artist in his forties on commission in Vencie, then as the lonely but established legend in his sixties living in London. 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. This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

Mystery Book Discussion Group
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Do you enjoy reading and discussing mystery novels? You’ll find good company in a friendly group of readers who meet monthly in the library’s Conference Room. 

This month the group will discuss Fogland Point by author Doug Burgess:

David Hazard wanted nothing more than to forget his renegade family and the foggy New England village "on the wrong side" of Narragansett Bay where he grew up. When sudden tragedy brings him back to Little Compton to care for his grandmother during her struggle with dementia, he discovers her fragile memories may hold the key to a bizarre mystery half a century old - and perhaps to the sudden and brutal murder right next door.

Elegant prose, a veritable Chinese box of puzzles, and authentic, well-rounded characters make this a standout. (Publishers Weekly)

We are excited to announce that on Sunday, March 3, 2019, at 3 pm, the Music Committee of the Friends of the Library will present an unusual concert.  The Weston Wind Quintet will perform three pieces for wind quintet by Edvard Grieg, Ferrenc Farkas, and Gyorgi Ligeti, and then one with piano as well, by Paul Juon.  Although we often have piano recitals and other ensembles that include the piano such as piano trios, we have not had a wind quintet with piano.  Of the selections to be performed, the only one likely to be familiar to the audience is "Wedding day at Troldhaugen by Edvard Grieg, with the others broadening our horizons, tuneful, and accessible.  Where better to learn and enjoy than at the library!  Come early to secure a seat and then stay to meet the artists at the reception.  As always, the concert is free and handicapped accessible.

Mystery Book Discussion Group
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Do you enjoy reading and discussing mystery novels? You’ll find good company in a friendly group of readers who meet monthly in the library’s Conference Room. This month the group will discuss The Laughing Policeman by Maj Sjowall.

On a cold and rainy Stockholm night, nine bus riders are gunned down by a mysterious assassin. The press portrays it as a freak attack and dubs the killer a madman. But Superintendent Martin Beck thinks otherwise—one of his most ambitious young detectives was among those killed—and he suspects it was more than coincidence. Working on a hunch, Beck seeks out the girlfriend of the murdered detective, and with her help Beck reconstructs the steps that led to his murder. The police comb the country for the killer, only to find that this attack may be connected to a case that has been unsolved for years.

Copies of the book will be available for check out at the library's front desk.

Mystery Book Discussion Group
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Do you enjoy reading and discussing mystery novels? You’ll find good company in a friendly group of readers who meet monthly in the library’s Conference Room. This month the group will discuss author Josephine Tey's novel Brat Farrar:

In this tale of mystery and suspense, a stranger enters the inner sanctum of the Ashby family posing as Patrick Ashby, the heir to the family's sizable fortune. The stranger, Brat Farrar, has been carefully coached on Patrick's mannerism's, appearance, and every significant detail of Patrick's early life, up to his thirteenth year when he disappeared and was thought to have drowned himself. It seems as if Brat is going to pull off this most incredible deception until old secrets emerge that jeopardize the imposter's plan and his life.

Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the Circulation Desk in advance.

Women's Suffrage in Massachusetts
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Massachusetts was at the center of the national struggle for women's rights. Long before the Civil War, Lucy Stone and other Massachusetts abolitionists opposed women's exclusion from political life. They launched the organized movement at the first National Woman's Rights Convention, held in Worcester. After the war, state activists founded the Boston-based American Woman Suffrage Association and Woman's Journal to lead campaigns across the country. Their activities laid the foundation for the next generation of suffragists to triumph over tradition. Author Barbara Berenson gives these revolutionary reformers the attention they deserve in this compelling and engaging story.

Please join us in the library's Community Room for this free lecture, sponsored by the Weston Historical Society.
