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 The 15:17 to Paris

In the early evening of August 21, 2015, the world watched in stunned silence as the media reported a thwarted terrorist attack on a train bound for Paris, an attempt prevented by three courageous young Americans traveling through Europe. The film follows the course of the friends' lives, from the struggles of childhood through finding their footing in life, to the series of unlikely events leading up to the attack. Throughout the harrowing ordeal, their friendship never wavers, making it their greatest weapon and allowing them to save the lives of the more than 500 passengers on board.

Run time: 120 minutes

West Overton: A Fascinating History
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Step back into history with us, as we welcome the Director of Education at the historic West Overton Village!

Because of its businesses and as the birthplace of Henry Clay Frick, West Overton exemplifies the region's industrialization throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Learn all about the history of this unique pre-Civil War site, and how the area grew and industrialized around a whiskey distillery, coal mine, and coke ovens!

Plus, you will be one of the first to have the opportunity to sign up for our new West Overton Experience Kit! This kit will provide FREE admission for up to four people; the site offers tours of the Overholt family's home and outbuildings, welcomes visitors to a museum in the original 1859 distillery building, and is months away from operating a distillery on-site for the first time since Prohibition. West Overton is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a stop on the American Whiskey Trail.

Registration Required. 

  

Speaker Bio: Aaron Hollis is the Director of Education at West Overton Village. A native of Scottdale, PA, Aaron grew up hearing stories of local history, and sharing that history with others has become his passion. He studied Anthropology at the University of Pittsburgh and Public History at West Virginia University. Aaron enjoys vintage photography, hiking, and spending time with his pup, Wicket.

We’ve got games! We’ve got trivia and prizes! We’ve got dances! And an Italian supper fit for a sock hop!

This blast from the past will make you feel just like a “teenager in love”, you dig?

And if you can’t make it? Well, “Ain’t that a shame!”

Junior Librarians
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

New Program-Junior Librarians!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a librarian? Do you think working in the children’s library would be exciting and fun? Then the junior librarian program is for you!

Whitehall Public Library welcomes students who want to volunteer. Student volunteers develop new skills and gain practical experience, as well as learn about the educational mission and vision of a public library. Junior librarians will work cooperatively as a team with staff members to complete projects and tasks in the children’s library. Volunteers must be entering grades 5-8. Junior librarians will meet the first and third Wednesday of the month from 6:30-7:30 pm. Registration is required.

A level walk for level-headed folks!
