Woodstock 50th Anniversary Event!
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

WOODSTOCK 50th ANNIVERSARY EVENT!!

Music, Food, Trivia, Costumes!!!

Come Re-live the Magic!

2 - 4 p.m. - Library Plaza Program Room

Ventress Memorial Library will host a free event to mark the 50th anniversary of Woodstock on Saturday, August 24, 2019 from 2-4 p.m. in the Library Plaza Program Room. The groundbreaking music festival was held from August 15 to 18 in 1969, on Max Yasgur's farm in Bethel, New York. Marshfield residents Derek Gunn, Bill Dunn and Joe Kodzis will be on hand to give perspectives on the counter-culture era and help all to remember the music. The Woodstock tribute is meant to be a multi-generational celebration combining memories of those who enjoyed the original music and festival, with introducing a younger generation to the music and culture of the 1960s.  Themed refreshments will be served. Woodstock music will be played; a short film screened; and karaoke and dancing will liven up the afternoon. A display table will contain books and memorabilia from the era, and there will be a trivia contest and a free raffle. Participants are encouraged to bring in personal mementos, especially copies of the albums from the era and any photos. Hippie dress-up is optional. This event is free and open to the public; no tickets are required. All ages are invited to attend.

VML Classic Book Group
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

September Classic Book Choice is "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" by Betty Smith

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is a semi-autobiographical 1943 novel written by Betty Smith. The story focuses on an impoverished but aspirational adolescent girl and her family living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York City, during the first two decades of the 20th century. The book was an immense success. The main metaphor of the book is the hardy Tree of Heaven, whose persistent ability to grow and flourish even in the inner city mirrors the protagonist's desire to better herself.

 

The Ventress Memorial Library in Marshfield  hosts an ongoing book discussion group that seeks to delve into classic literature and find fresh insights while considering modern-day perspectives. We read only the classics or "soon-to-be" classics!  We usually meet on the second Wednesday of the month from 4:30-6, but sometimes vary our meeting dates/times for special book group events (movie potlucks, holiday party). Sign up in advance to reserve a seat, or just come on the day to listen. The group is free and open to the public. New members are always welcome. Light refreshments will be served. Contact Assistant Director Chris Woods for more information and if you need a copy of the book. We look forward to welcoming you!
