Matinee in the Cafe!
1:15 PM

Stop by the Second Chapter Cafe and join other adults to watch a different film each week!  No registration required.

This week's selection is Love, Simon.

Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it's a little more complicated: he's yet to tell his family or friends he's gay and he doesn't actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. The film is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.

Run time: 109 minutes

Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says "Please look after this bear. Thank you," and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.

Paddington 2: finds Paddington happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy's hundredth birthday, Paddington spots a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber's antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it's up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief!

Photography Workshop with Paige Crawley

Join us for an exciting month of digital photography while we learn some of the most important aspects of the art, including composition, psychological components, and location.  In this workshop, we’ll focus more on the artistic, compositional aspects of photography as opposed to the mechanics, so automatic mode will be fine.  We’ll experiment with different styles and share our work with each other while learning how to be intentional with our photographs.  Bring a camera (anything from a simple point-and-shoot to a DSLR), a positive attitude, and get ready to shoot.

Photography Workshop
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

https://www.paigecrawley.com/Tween Photography Class

Join us for an exciting month of digital photography while we learn some of the most important aspects of the art, including composition, psychological components, and location.  In this workshop, we’ll focus more on the artistic, compositional aspects of photography as opposed to the mechanics, so automatic mode will be fine.  We’ll experiment with different styles and share our work with each other while learning how to be intentional with our photographs.  Bring a camera (anything from a simple point-and-shoot to a DSLR), a positive attitude, and get ready to shoot.

Paige Crawley is going into her senior year at Baldwin High School.  At fifteen, she started her business, Paige Crawley Photography, which she continues to build today.  At sixteen, she was hired to photograph the city of Pittsburgh for Sam Hazo’s memoir, The Pittsburgh That Stays Within You.  Now, at seventeen, she hopes to focus on growing her business and getting ready for college next year.  Workshop dates: July 11, 18 and 25th from 7-8 pm. Participants must be in grades 6-8. Registrations is required for the first workshop. Space is limited.

Bonus photoshoot/party for those who complete the workshop-August 1st.  https://www.paigecrawley.com/

The Game Room: A Table Top Experience
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Thanks to The Big Bang Theory, popular podcasts, and the rise of Nerd Power, gaming is now more popular than ever.  Join the library for a chance to trade your thousand-plus cable channels and the rabbit holes of YouTube for some real fun with real people –plus a rule book and a table top!

The Game Room meets twice a month for an evening of conversation, game play, and turn-taking.  We are completely free —no more having to purchase overpriced coffee for the right to use precious counter space!—and we welcome Euro Games, deck building games, RPGs, and whatever else happens to move your meeple.

In addition to our own collection, The Game Room is happily BYOB, or (Bring Your Own Board game.)

The star party will be on September 22nd, with a rain or cloudy make-up date of September 29th. An astronomy presentation will begin at 7:00 pm. Mars will be located in the Southern sky. Saturn with its beautiful rings will be setting in the West.  The Moon will be a Waxing crescent at 94% and will be 13 days old. Many valleys, mountains and craters can be seen. Other galaxies, nebulas and stars can also be viewed. Bring your binoculars if you have them, as many objects can be viewed in the evening sky. Club members will help point out what can be seen with binoculars. Meteorites from the constellations Perseus and Pieces may also been seen in the East. Registration is required.
