Wotiz Gallery Exhibit: The Bay State - A Multicultural Landscape

During the months of May and June, the Library is hosting a very talented Massachusetts photographer named Mark Chester.  Mr. Chester has captured a "mini United Nations" within the state through images of immigrants.  He has  been photographing immigrants for years, making it his mission to take pictures of two people from every nation in the world.  He is well on his way to completing his goal because since 2011, Mark has photographed people from 185 of the world's 196 countries, all of them immigrants who have settled in Massachusetts.  All of his subjects have become naturalized citizens and portions of his selections of more than 350 photos have been exhibited around the state, most recently at the State House.  He is now putting them into a book which he plans to distribute free to schools and libraries.  The project - called "The Bay State: A Multicultural Landscape: Photographs of New Americans" - has taken on new meaning in 2017.  The purpose of his exhibits are to enlighten, to educate, and to make people aware of residents from different countries.  His work offers a glimpse into the lives of immigrants who have embraced their new country, but have still retained some of the culture of their homelands.  Mr. Chester - who lives on Cape Cod - attends naturalization ceremonies and has even been known to ask cab drivers where they're from.  One of the project's sponsors is the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition as Mark's work helps capture the sense of optimism many immigrants have after they settle here. For more information on the MIRA Coalition’s future projects with Mr. Chester, go to http://bit.ly/BayStatebook, and for the artist's website, go to http://www.markchesterphotography.com.   We encourage you to visit the library while the display is in place as it is so culturally enriching and inspiring to see.  Please note that the "Mark Chester Cultural Diversity Project" is a recipient of a Milton Cultural Council grant (Spring 2016).  Also there will be a free and open reception for this exhibit on Thursday, June 8th from 6-8 PM in the Gallery.

Readers' Theatre Club
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Readers' Theatre is a a type of drama performed by "readers" who read from a script and do not have to memorize lines.  Performed with minimal costumes, sets and props, readers' theatre can be not only a great introduction to theatre for kids, but it's also a great way to practice one's oral reading skills, build confidence, and have fun with friends at the same time!

This summer, Miss Sara is leading a Readers' Theatre Club for students entering grades 2-4.  Each week participants will play theatre games, tackle different scripts based on well-known children's books, and make crafts to supplement the stories we're telling together.  The Club will meet five times over the course of the summer, and each meeting will culminate with a performance for family and friends.  While this is a drop-off program, parents/caregivers are asked to return 15 minutes before the end of each class (at 3:45) so they can see the show!

Students must be fluent readers who have completed first grade.  Registration is required and will open two weeks before the event.

Tuesday Night at the Movies: Florence Foster Jenkins
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

There will be a free screening this evening of the film "Florence Foster Jenkins," starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant.  In the 1940s, New York socialite Florence Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep) dreams of becoming a great opera singer. Unfortunately, her ambition far exceeds her talent. The voice Florence hears in her head is beautiful, but to everyone else it is quite lousy. Her husband St. Clair (Hugh Grant) goes to extreme lengths to make sure his wife never finds out how awful she truly is. When Florence announces her plans for a concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair soon realizes that he's facing his greatest challenge yet.  Come and enjoy this true story which is hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time.  It's a wonderful film and a poignant tale.  The rating is PG-13 for "brief suggestive material, parents strongly cautioned, some material may be inappropriate for children under 13."  The running time is 1 hour, 51 minutes and it will start promptly at 6:30 PM.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

This summer, Miss Sara is leading a Readers' Theatre Club for students entering grades 2-4.  Each week participants will play theatre games, tackle different scripts based on well-known children's books, and make crafts to supplement the stories we're telling together.  The Club will meet five times over the course of the summer, and each meeting will culminate with a performance for family and friends.  While this is a drop-off program, parents/caregivers are asked to return 15 minutes before the end of each class (at 3:45) so they can see the show!

Surfin' Cinema: Weekend at Bernie's
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The second movie in our summer beach series will be shown today and it is "Weekend at Bernie's," which is described as "engagingly wacky and deliciously dark" comedy.  Brace yourself for a hectic and fun weekend filled with mayhem, misadventure...   and murder!  Hilarious performances by Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman make this fatally funny comedy a "good old knockdown slapstick with just the right dose of cruelty thrown in."  It sounded like a great weekend away at their boss Bernie's beachside pleasure palace, but when working stiffs Richard and Larry arrive to find a REAL stiff- their murdered boss - they're forced to concoct a crazy scheme to avoid being implicated and/or dead themselves!  With Bernie propped up and his death effectively covered up, Richard and Larry's weekend escape becomes exactly that, as they dodge curious babes, a curtain of bullets and one confused hit man!   The running time is 98 minutes and the rating is PG-13 for adult situations and language, so this movie is not suitable for young children.  Please come to the library for a cool and fun time at this afternoon event which promises lots of laughter.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Surfin' Cinema: Beach Blanket Bingo
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This afternoon there will be a free screening of the 1965 classic film "Beach Blanket Bingo" starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello.  This sand-inspired party film was directed by William Asher, and it is the fifth and also best-known movie in the beach party film series produced by American International Pictures.  It also features Paul Lynde, Don Rickles and Buster Keaton.  A singer, Sugar Kane (Linda Evans), is unwittingly being used for publicity stunts for her latest album by her agent, for example, faking a skydiving stunt, actually performed by Bonnie.  Meanwhile, Frankie takes up skydiving at Bonnie's prompting; she secretly wants to make her boyfriend Steve jealous.  This of course prompts Dee Dee to also try free-falling.  Eric Von Zipper and his Malibu Rat Pack bikers also show up, with Von Zipper falling madly in love with Sugar Kane.  To top all this, Bonehead falls in love with a mermaid.  Eventually, Von Zipper "puts the snatch" on Sugar Kane.  Ths film takes a "Perils of Pauline"-like twist, with the evil South Dakota Slim (Timothy Carey) kidnapping Sugar and tying her to a buzz-saw.  It is not rated and the running time is 98 minutes. Come and enjoy a blast from the past with this fun and crazy movie, and enjoy the coolness of the library.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Readers' Theatre Club
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Readers' Theatre is a a type of drama performed by "readers" who read from a script and do not have to memorize lines.  Performed with minimal costumes, sets and props, readers' theatre can be not only a great introduction to theatre for kids, but it's also a great way to practice one's oral reading skills, build confidence, and have fun with friends at the same time!

This summer, Miss Sara is leading a Readers' Theatre Club for students entering grades 2-4.  Each week participants will play theatre games, tackle different scripts based on well-known children's books, and make crafts to supplement the stories we're telling together.  The Club will meet five times over the course of the summer, and each meeting will culminate with a performance for family and friends.  While this is a drop-off program, parents/caregivers are asked to return 15 minutes before the end of each class (at 3:45) so they can see the show!

Students must be fluent readers who have completed first grade.  Registration is required and will open two weeks before the event.

Film Showing: The Finest Hours
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

There will be a free showing of the film "The Finest Hours" this evening.  Based on the extraordinary true story of the greatest small-boat rescue in Coast Guard history, this is a tale of courage, loyalty and honor in the face of overwhelming odds.  When a massive storm strikes off the coast of Cape Cod, it rips a T-2 oil tanker in half, trapping more than 30 sailors on its rapidly sinking stern, Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine) and his crew set out in a 12-seat rescue boat to save them,  as Chief Engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) struggles to buy his men more time.  Packed with heroic larger-than-life action and driven by the men's faith in their mission, themselves and one another,  "The Finest Hours" is a triumph.  It is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of peril and may not be suitable for children, and the running time is 117 minutes.  We are showing this at the library in honor of the author, Michael Tougias, who will be speaking at the Milton Public Library Foundation gala which will be held in the Fall.  Please join us if you have not seen this great film!    And for more details, go to our website at www.miltonlibrary.org.
