A Tree Grows in Wallingford Leaf Making
6:45 PM - 7:45 PM

Join the A Tree Grows in Wallingford community art project. Drop by to participate in a leaf making session. All ages welcome. 

In May and June, the library will celebrate the town’s 350th + 2 anniversary with a special community art project. Local artist Rashmi Talpade will lead the creation of a mural across from the Check Out Desk as a semi-permanent exhibition. Rashmi has taught numerous art programs at the library and is best known for the Wallingford Townscape Collage on display in our front hallway. For this anniversary mural, she has painted a giant tree and will help residents create decorative “leaves” with images of themselves and their families. Most images will be photographs, but self-portraits in other mediums also will be accepted. As the leaf-shaped images are designed, participants will be able to see them affixed to the tree and watch the development of the mural, akin to a tree sprouting leaves.

You may email your own photo to us at wplcollaboratory@gmail.com with “A Tree Grows in Wallingford” in the subject line or drop off a photo in the Collaboratory for inclusion in the project. We recommend that the photo of you reflects an important aspect of your life in your choice of clothing and/or an object you hold.

Teen Movie: 10 Things I Hate About You
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Grades 6-12 | Drop-in

School's out early so let's get together and watch a movie! This month, we'll watch 10 Things I Hate About You (PG-13). Snacks will be served. 

Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles) is beautiful, smart and quite abrasive to most of her fellow teens, meaning that she doesn't attract many boys. Unfortunately for her younger sister, Bianca (Larisa Oleynik), house rules say that she can't date until Kat has a boyfriend, so strings are pulled to set the dour damsel up for a romance. Soon Kat crosses paths with handsome new arrival Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger). Will Kat let her guard down enough to fall for the effortlessly charming Patrick?

< VIRTUAL & IN-PERSON MEETING >

The Weekend by Charlotte Wood
 
Four women have been friends for over 40 years. But when one of the four dies, the remaining three must gather together to clear out her old beach house. In the process, they unearth painful memories and fraying tempers, which cause them to question how they’d ever become friends in the first place. This short novel is a funny and tender exploration of long-term friendships and growing old.
 
Moderated by Readers Advisory Librarian Cindy Haiken. To participate and for details about meeting virtually or in-person, contact Cindy at chaiken@wallingfordlibrary.org.

Enslaved Wallingford: The Missing Chapter of our American Narrative
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

< VIRTUAL & IN-PERSON PROGRAM >

This popular presentation is back as the first of WPL’s programs celebrating Wallingford’s 350th (+2).

The pandemic gave The Wallingford Historic Preservation Trust the “creative pause,” if you will, for a reinterpretation our historic properties, all of which have ties to New England slavery. The Trust oversees the Nehemiah Royce House (1672), the Franklin Johnson Mansion (1866), and the Yale Homestead (1790), which traces its origins to Yale University founder, Elihu Yale, and his family’s ties to the East Indian slave trade. According to historian Anne Farrow, “In Connecticut and elsewhere in New England, ‘All the best families owned ‘captives.’” And the histories of the Royce, Johnson, and Yale homes all bear out this statement. Rebuilding the historic record of enslaved Blacks, as a group and as individuals, can provide insight into this “buried truth.” With Wallingford’s 350th celebration postponed to 2022, the Trust has embarked on the “Black Stories Matter history project” to provide the colonial history of a significant population of free and enslaved black Americans in Meriden and Wallingford who were responsible for building the prosperity of our towns, a chapter that has heretofore remained unexplored in our written history.

Chris Menapace is an educator and independent researcher of northern enslavement. He received his Master's degree in Public History from Central Connecticut State University and has done extensive research into Connecticut's enslaved population. Chris works with the history of enslavement and Connecticut at both the Wallingford Historic Preservation Trust as Vice President and Discovering Amistad as their Senior Educator.

ATTEND VIRTUALLY: The program will be streamed live from the library straight to your home through Zoom. Once registered, you will be contacted prior to the program with participation instructions.

ATTEND IN-PERSON: Face masks are recommended.

WATCH THE RECORDING: Can't make it? The program will be recorded and uploaded to the library's YouTube soon after.

5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Do you like to sew? Join people who enjoy quilting and sewing at a casual “drop in” program anytime from 5:30 to 8:30pm in the Collaboratory the first Tuesday evening of each month. Bring your unfinished projects, either hand sewing or machine. There are 4 portable sewing machines (or bring your own) and lots of sewing supplies and tools provided by the library for your use. Stop by for 10 minutes or for the full 3 hours for a fun evening of sharing and learning!
