Is your copy of War and Peace propping open the front door?  Have you started Pride and Prejudice more times than your car?

If so, join the book club devoted to turning that masterpiece into a piece of cake!  We’ll tackle another classic work each month to see if it deserves its place on history’s highest shelf. 

After such a long hiatus, it's time to revisit the books from school we couldn't understand or lied about reading altogether.  It's time to give those classroom favorites a second chance!  Let's hit the books!

This month's title is: Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie

 

Peter Pan (Modern Library Classics): Barrie, J.M., Bedford, F.D.,  McCaffrey, Anne: 9780812972979: Amazon.com: Books

** Copies available upon request.  If you wish to join, stop by the library or call 412-882-6622 and ask for Brandon! **

Looking to try a new craft, but don't want to invest a lot of money until you know if it works for you? Are you wanting to downsize and have beautiful craft related items that need a new home? Bring them in to our free Craft Supply Swap and go home with some new materials to help spark some inspiration!

Drop off your craft donations during a designated drop-off time (see below). Those who donated items will receive tickets allowing early entry (10 am) during the event; everyone else is welcome to come in and browse between 11 am - 2 pm.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Please only bring items that are in good condition that you would want to bring home. No opened paint, items that are no longer usable or broken, etc. This swap is intended for arts and crafts donations only (e.g., yarn, fabric, decorative paper, buttons and beads, crafting tools, etc. - anything sitting in your craft corner that hasn't been used but could be great for the right person!) Please donate any books, household wares etc. to your local thrift store. The library reserves the right to turn away any donation that does not fit into these guidelines.

Behind the Scenes: A Movie Discussion Club
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Virtual Meetup - Last Monday of the Month - 3:00 PM

 
More than entertaining stories to be viewed from a sofa and then benignly forgotten, cinema is an art form rich in expression and worthy of our time and attention.
 
Join Brandon for a fun discussion of a variety of films from John Wayne to Shirley Temple.  Each month, we'll discuss two thematically-paired films and look "behind the scenes" to unpack each their historical significance, stylistic choices, and meanings.
 
You may laugh, you may cry, you may even raise an eyebrow and wonder "What was that?", but you'll certainly be affected. They don't call 'em moving pictures for nothing!
 
 
This month's selections: King of the Hill (1993) and Pather Panchali (1955)
King of the Hill 1993 U.S. One Sheet Poster - Posteritati Movie Poster  Gallery      Pather Panchali (1955) - IMDb

Behind the Scenes: A Movie Discussion Club
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Virtual Meetup - Last Monday of the Month - 3:00 PM

 
More than entertaining stories to be viewed from a sofa and then benignly forgotten, cinema is an art form rich in expression and worthy of our time and attention.
 
Join Brandon for a fun discussion of a variety of films from John Wayne to Shirley Temple.  Each month, we'll discuss two thematically-paired films and look "behind the scenes" to unpack each their historical significance, stylistic choices, and meanings.
 
You may laugh, you may cry, you may even raise an eyebrow and wonder "What was that?", but you'll certainly be affected. They don't call 'em moving pictures for nothing!
 
 
This month's selections: Jeremy (1973) and Zazie dans le Métro (1960)
 
Jeremy (1973) - IMDb     Zazie in the Subway (1959) - Filmaffinity
 
 
Copies available at the library!  Reserve yours by calling 412-882-6622 or e-mailing Brandon ( taperb2@einetwork.net )

Mystery Book Club

Are you thrilled by a good mystery?

Join our Mystery Book Club! We meet once a month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. New members are always welcome. 

This month, we are reading The Chestnut Man by Soren Sveistrup 

A psychopath is terrorizing Copenhagen.

His calling card is a “chestnut man”—a handmade doll made of matchsticks and two chestnuts—which he leaves at each bloody crime scene.

Examining the dolls, forensics makes a shocking discovery—a fingerprint belonging to a young girl, a government minister’s daughter who had been kidnapped and murdered a year ago.

A tragic coincidence—or something more twisted?

To save innocent lives, a pair of detectives must put aside their differences to piece together the Chestnut Man’s gruesome clues.

Because it’s clear that the madman is on a mission that is far from over.

And no one is safe.

Behind the Scenes: A Movie Discussion Club
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Virtual Meetup - Last Monday of the Month - 3:00 PM

 
More than entertaining stories to be viewed from a sofa and then benignly forgotten, cinema is an art form rich in expression and worthy of our time and attention.
 
Join Brandon for a fun discussion of a variety of films from John Wayne to Shirley Temple.  Each month, we'll discuss two thematically-paired films and look "behind the scenes" to unpack each their historical significance, stylistic choices, and meanings.
 
You may laugh, you may cry, you may even raise an eyebrow and wonder "What was that?", but you'll certainly be affected. They don't call 'em moving pictures for nothing!
 
 
This month's selections: Il Sorpasso (1962) and Night on Earth (1991)
 
Il sorpasso (1962) | The Criterion CollectionNight on Earth (1991) | The Criterion Collection

Mystery Book Club
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

  

Are you thrilled by a good mystery?

Join our Mystery Book Club! We meet once a month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. New members are always welcome. 

This month, we are reading Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line by Deepa Anappara

Through market lanes crammed with too many people, dogs, and rickshaws, past stalls that smell of cardamom and sizzling oil, below a smoggy sky that doesn’t let through a single blade of sunlight, and all the way at the end of the Purple metro line lies a jumble of tin-roofed homes where nine-year-old Jai lives with his family. From his doorway, he can spot the glittering lights of the city’s fancy high-rises, and though his mother works as a maid in one, to him they seem a thousand miles away. Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line plunges readers deep into this neighborhood to trace the unfolding of a tragedy through the eyes of a child as he has his first perilous collisions with an unjust and complicated wider world.

Jai drools outside sweet shops, watches too many reality police shows, and considers himself to be smarter than his friends Pari (though she gets the best grades) and Faiz (though Faiz has an actual job). When a classmate goes missing, Jai decides to use the crime-solving skills he has picked up from TV to find him. He asks Pari and Faiz to be his assistants, and together they draw up lists of people to interview and places to visit.

But what begins as a game turns sinister as other children start disappearing from their neighborhood. Jai, Pari, and Faiz have to confront terrified parents, an indifferent police force, and rumors of soul-snatching djinns. As the disappearances edge ever closer to home, the lives of Jai and his friends will never be the same again.

Drawing on real incidents and a spate of disappearances in metropolitan India, Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line is extraordinarily moving, flawlessly imagined, and a triumph of suspense. It captures the fierce warmth, resilience, and bravery that can emerge in times of trouble and carries the reader headlong into a community that, once encountered, is impossible to forget.

And no one is safe.

Mystery Book Club
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

  

Are you thrilled by a good mystery?

Join our Mystery Book Club! We meet once a month to discuss the hottest whodunnits. New members are always welcome. 

This month, we are reading The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave

Before Owen Michaels disappears, he smuggles a note to his beloved wife of one year: Protect her. Despite her confusion and fear, Hannah Hall knows exactly to whom the note refers—Owen’s sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey. Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child. Bailey, who wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother.

As Hannah’s increasingly desperate calls to Owen go unanswered, as the FBI arrests Owen’s boss, as a US marshal and federal agents arrive at her Sausalito home unannounced, Hannah quickly realizes her husband isn’t who he said he was. And that Bailey just may hold the key to figuring out Owen’s true identity—and why he really disappeared.

Hannah and Bailey set out to discover the truth. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen’s past, they soon realize they’re also building a new future—one neither of them could have anticipated.

With its breakneck pacing, dizzying plot twists, and evocative family drama, The Last Thing He Told Me is a riveting mystery, certain to shock you with its final, heartbreaking turn.

Behind the Scenes: A Movie Discussion Club
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Virtual Meetup - Last Monday of the Month - 3:00 PM

 
More than entertaining stories to be viewed from a sofa and then benignly forgotten, cinema is an art form rich in expression and worthy of our time and attention.
 
Join Brandon for a fun discussion of a variety of films from John Wayne to Shirley Temple.  Each month, we'll discuss two thematically-paired films and look "behind the scenes" to unpack each their historical significance, stylistic choices, and meanings.
 
You may laugh, you may cry, you may even raise an eyebrow and wonder "What was that?", but you'll certainly be affected. They don't call 'em moving pictures for nothing!

Are you thrilled by a good mystery?

This month, we are reading Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney 

Things have been wrong with Mr and Mrs Wright for a long time. When Adam and Amelia win a weekend away to Scotland, it might be just what their marriage needs. Self-confessed workaholic and screenwriter Adam Wright has lived with face blindness his whole life. He can’t recognize friends or family, or even his own wife.

Every anniversary the couple exchange traditional gifts--paper, cotton, pottery, tin--and each year Adam’s wife writes him a letter that she never lets him read. Until now. They both know this weekend will make or break their marriage, but they didn’t randomly win this trip. One of them is lying, and someone doesn’t want them to live happily ever after.

Ten years of marriage. Ten years of secrets. And an anniversary they will never forget
