harbingers of spring. 
 
We will look at several species closely, 
to discover how our native flower friends fit perfectly 
into the eco-system; who do they help and who helps them? 
Are they more than just a pretty face?
Do they have anything to teach us?
What powers do they possess for blooming 
at a time of year when others would not dare!?
 
Bring your curiosity, your experiences, your poems and your passion, 
for an evening dedicated to these Brave Beauties of Spring

Presented by Dr. Erika Skoe, Assistant Professor of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, and the founder and director of the Auditory Brain Research Lab at UConn.

What to Expect When You’re Grieving

Is there really such a thing as good grief? It’s an understatement to say that we feel overwhelmed and unprepared when someone close to us dies. It’s difficult to sort out good from bad advice offered by those who worry, and may wish we would “get over it” and be our “old self.” In this program, Karen Caplan, LCSW, will talk about grief, what helps us heal, and rediscovering the preciousness of each day. Karen is an experienced bereavement group leader and grief psychotherapist in Wallingford.

All teens and adults are welcome to this book discussion where we explore Young Adult literature.  Lauren Rumi will moderate.  Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk. 

In March we will be discussing Hey, Kiddo by Jarrett Krosoczka, a graphic novel memoir and National Book Award finalist.

In kindergarten, Jarrett's teacher asks him to draw his family, with a mommy and a daddy. But Jarrett's family is much more complicated than that. His mom is an addict, in and out of rehab, and in and out of Jarrett's life. His father is a mystery--Jarrett doesn't know where to find him, or even what his name is. Jarrett lives with his grandparents--two very loud, very loving, very opinionated people who had thought they were through with raising children until Jarrett came along. Jarrett goes through his childhood trying to make his non-normal life as normal as possible, finding a way to express himself through drawing even as so little is being said to him about what's going on. Only as a teenager can Jarrett begin to piece together the truth of his family, reckoning with his mother and tracking down his father.

Etsy Artisan Spring Market
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Spring is finally here and with that comes a season of celebrations... Mother's Day, graduations, birthdays, weddings, baby showers, and Father's Day, to name a few. Forget the big box stores and celebrate your loved ones with a special handmade gift, made locally by crafters from Wallingford and surrounding towns.

Quilting, fabric art, woodwork, paintings, prints, pottery, kid and baby items, greeting cards, photography, jewelry, jams, wine charms, candles and lotions are just a sample of what will be offered at the Spring Market. There's literally something for everyone, in a range of prices.

Each crafter participating in this fair is an up-and-coming entrepreneur who got their start through the Wallingford Library’s Etsy Craft Entrepreneurship Workshop. In this class, students learned how to use the Etsy online marketplace as well as all of the necessary tools to start a small business.

Wallingford Public Library’s Craft Entrepreneurship Workshops have been offered free to the public thanks to the generosity of the family of Marcia W. Fix, an avid quilter, knitter and WPL librarian. In her memory, the classes are leaving behind a legacy of new crafters. In that spirit, this group of budding artists is grateful to be able to share their successes with you. Please attend the Spring Market, shop small, and become a part of their entrepreneurial journey.

Developed by the Alzheimer’s Society in the United Kingdom, the Dementia Friends initiative is underway in the USA. By helping everyone in a community understand what dementia is and how it affects people, each of us can make a difference for people touched by dementia.

A Dementia Friend is someone who, through viewing a series of online videos, learns about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends program to visiting someone who is living with dementia, every action counts. Anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend – we all have a part to play in creating dementia-friendly communities!

This Information Session is run by a Dementia Friends Champion. It covers the five key messages everyone should know about dementia through activities and discussion, but the session is not a formal training. Those who attend are asked to commit to a dementia-friendly action and can become a Dementia Friend.

Just One Drop: Documentary Screening & Discussion
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Just One Drop tells the little known story of homeopathy: the most controversial system of medicine ever invented. Homeopathy is a specific form of medicine that uses minute doses of a highly diluted substance that stimulates the body to cure itself. To many, homeopathy seems implausible. They fear it is purely a placebo effect or worse, a form of deception or quackery. Yet, homeopathy has been around for more than 200 years and is used by millions worldwide. The film explores the controversy, dispels myths and misconceptions, and asks whether or not homeopathy has been given a fair shake. The film's ultimate message is about freedom of choice in healthcare.

Discussion moderated by Abby Beale, a nationally certified classical homeopath and the current board president for The National Center for Homeopathy, who enjoys educating others about the healing power of homeopathy. As a Wallingford resident, she has also served on the Wallingford Library Board of Managers.

The Line Becomes a River: Dispatches from the Border by Francisco Cantú

For Francisco Cantú, the border is in the blood: his mother, a park ranger and daughter of a Mexican immigrant, raised him in the scrublands of the Southwest. Driven to understand the hard realities of the landscape he loves, Cantú joins the Border Patrol. He and his partners learn to track other humans under blistering sun and through frigid nights. They haul in the dead and deliver to detention those they find alive. Plagued by a growing awareness of his complicity in a dehumanizing enterprise, he abandons the Patrol for civilian life. But when an immigrant friend travels to Mexico to visit his dying mother and does not return, Cantú discovers that the border has migrated with him, and now he must know the full extent of the violence it wreaks, on both sides of the line.

Discussion moderated by Journalist and Literary Critic Parul Kapur Hinzen. Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk.

Babysitting Course for Teens
10:30 AM - 2:30 PM

Many new babysitters face fears when it comes time to begin babysitting.  Will I know how to play with the children?  What happens if they get hurt?  How do I change a diaper?  This four hour class is designed to prepare teens to feel confident when accepting a babysitting job.  It covers topics such as interviewing tips, getting paid, how children play, ages and stages, communicating with children, basic care, changing diapers, and handling emergencies. At the completion of the course, participants will take a brief quiz and certificates of completion will be distributed.  Open to all in grades 6-12. Registration is required.
