1 hr 25 mins. All is well at Mossy Bottom Farm, except for the fact that the animals will do anything to get out of work. So, Shaun the sheep and his scheming friends devise a plan to put their master to sleep. However, the ruse backfires when the poor farmer finds himself transported to the big city, having lost his memory. Now, it's up to Sean, Timmy the lamb, Shirley the ewe and the rest of the gang to travel to the metropolis and get him back, while not landing in even more trouble themselves.

Author Series: Northeast Native Plant Primer -- 235 Plants for an Earth-Friendly Garden

Invasive plants are one of the greatest threats to the natural environment of New England: out-competing, displacing, and killing our native species. Join the Manchester City Library, in partnership with the Tewksbury Public Library for an evening author event on July 6 at 7:00 PM. Author Uli Lormier will discuss his new book, The Northeast Native Plant Primer: 235 Plants for an Earth-Friendly Garden, in this Zoom webinar.

About The Book: Bring your garden to life—and life to your garden. Do you want a garden that makes a real difference? Choose plants native to our Northeast region. The rewards will benefit you, your yard, and the environment -- from reducing maintenance tasks to attracting earth-friendly pollinators such as native birds, butterflies, and bees. Native plant expert Uli Lorimer, of the Native Plant Trust, makes adding these superstar plants easier than ever before, with proven advice that every home gardener can follow. This incomparable sourcebook includes 235 recommended native trees, shrubs, vines, ferns, wildflowers, grasses, sedges, and annuals. It’s everything you need to know to create a beautiful and beneficial garden. This is a must-have handbook for gardeners in Massachusetts.

About The Author: Uli Lorimer is the director of horticulture at Native Plant Trust. He is a tireless advocate for native plants in public gardens, the designed landscape, and those found in the wild. Founded in 1900 as the Society for the Protection of Native Plants, the Native Plant Trust is the nation’s oldest plant conservation organization and a recognized leader in native plant conservation, horticulture, and education. The Society’s headquarters, Garden in the Woods, is a renowned native plant botanic garden in Framingham, Massachusetts, that attracts visitors from all over the world. From this base, 25 staff and more than 700 volunteers work throughout New England to monitor and protect rare and endangered plants, collect and preserve seeds to ensure biological diversity, detect and control invasive species, conduct research, and offer a range of educational programs.

Summer Movie Series: Captain Phillips

Captain Phillips. 135 minutes, 2013, Directed by Paul Greengrass.

Starring: Tom Hanks, Catherine Keener, Barkhad Abdi.

Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is - through director Paul Greengrass's distinctive lens - simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller, and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama's commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (two time Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks), and the Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage. Phillips and Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips' unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali coast, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.

For more information, contact Tess Kimsey at 603-624-6550 ext. 7620 or email tkimsey@manchesernh.gov.

A Garden for Wildlife, Presented by UNH Extension

The Manchester City Library invites you to an informative presentation on Gardening for Wildlife. This presentation will be on Tuesday, July 19th at 6pm Eastern and will be presented both in person and online. 

A Garden for Wildlife is a slide presentation that shows how anyone with a backyard, garden, or landscaped area can help wildlife by altering their landscaping and gardening practices. Includes discussion of wildlife and habitats, plant choice, use of native plants, nest boxes and feeders, and issues such as invasive plants.

This program will be presented by Ruth Axelrod. Ruth is a member of the speakers’ panel for the Speaking for Wildlife program, which educates people about the needs of local wildlife and what they can do to help maintain their habitats. Ruth joined the North American Master Gardener program in 2010 and is now an Advanced Master Gardener volunteer. She was trained in New Hampshire and Maryland, where she also completed extensive advanced training in eco-friendly gardening, composting and storm water management (including designing and constructing rain gardens). Her passion is helping people learn to recognize the ecological impacts of their landscaping and gardening practices and to be able to make choices that positively impact their local ecosystems.

For questions, call Caitlin at 603-624-6550 x3320 or email cdionne@manchesternh.gov

This Speaking for Wildlife program is sponsored by UNH Extension and New Hampshire Fish and Game.

Author Series: Little Matches -- An Inspirational Story On Discovering Your Purpose In Life

There are few constants in Life, Greif, Love, and Death. Join the Manchester City Library, in partnership with the Tewksbury Public Library for an evening author event on July 20 at 7:00 PM. Author Maryanne O'Hara will discuss her recent book, Little Matches: A Memoir of Finding Light in the Dark, in this Zoom webinar.

About The Book: Maryanne O’Hara recounts how she lost her beloved only child and set out to look for answers to life’s hard questions. Where is she? Is she? Is there more to life than this life? Does my existence have any real purpose? Does anyone’s? Can the synchronicities that we humans experience help us find meaning and purpose in our lives? Using images and reflections that speak to universal themes, Maryanne shares her remarkable story of resilience, of finding light inside life’s darkest hours, and offers suggestions for discovering one’s purpose.

About The Author: Maryanne O’Hara is the author, most recently, of Little Matches: A Memoir of Finding Light in the Dark. Little Matches is inspired by a blog that Maryanne O’Hara kept while her daughter Caitlin was waiting for a lung transplant. Maryanne and Caitlin’s story has been featured in The New York Times, TIME Magazine, The Boston Globe, Psychology Today, and Little Matches is a People Magazine Book of the Week. She is also the author of Cascade, a novel, which was the Boston Globe Book Club’s inaugural pick, a finalist for the Massachusetts Book Award, and a People Magazine Book of the Week. Maryanne holds an MFA in creative writing, has taught creative writing at the college level, and was a longtime editor at the literary journal, Ploughshares. After volunteering as an end-of-life volunteer at care facilities in Boston and Pittsburgh, she trained as a certified end-of-life doula at the University of Vermont’s Larner College of Medicine in 2019. Maryanne lectures on topics including chronic illness, bereavement, and secular spirituality. She is the developer of a successful legacy writing workshop that facilitates personal and communal reflective creative practices across identity, age, and health status. Learn more about Maryanne HERE.

U-571. 116 min, Directed by Jonathan Mostow. 

Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Bill Paxton, Harvey Keitel, and Jon Bon Jovi.

In the midst of World War II, the battle below the seas rages. The Nazis have the upper edge as the Allies are unable to crack their war codes. That is, until a wrecked U-boat sends out an SOS signal, and the Allies realize this is their chance to seize the 'enigma coding machine'. But masquerading as Nazis and taking over the U-boat is the smallest of their problems. The action really begins when they get stranded on the U-boat

However, she soon may be the Madrigals last hope when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is now in danger.

Summer Movie Series: The Finest Hours

The Finest Hours. 117 minutes, 2016, Directed by Craig Gillespie.

Starring: Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Eric Bana, and Holliday Grainger.

In February of 1952, one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast struck New England, damaging an oil tanker off the coast of Cape Cod and literally ripping it in half. On a small lifeboat faced with frigid temperatures and 70-foot high waves, four members of the Coast Guard set out to rescue the more than 30 stranded sailors trapped aboard the rapidly-sinking vessel.

For more information, contact Tess Kimsey at 603-624-6550 ext. 7620 or email tkimsey@manchesernh.gov.

Spend an afternoon at the library with a picnic and show.  Beginning at noon, families are invited to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the library lawn.  At 1:00 pm, in our air-conditioned auditorium, the Majestic Theater will be here to perform this summer’s show 3 Pigs and a Wolf.  Visit Parker Brown with us – a most unusual town filled with many a handful of zany characters. Join Calvin, Doctor Proctor, Gibble and Gobble Turkeys, and others as they do their best to confuse the Wolf (sometimes unintentionally) as he searches for the homes of the 3 Little Pigs.  The Wolf finally reaches the first Pig’s house and the rest is history.  You’ll never guess how this fun-filled musical ends!  For more information, please call 603-624-6550 ext. 7628.

Spend an afternoon at the library with a picnic and show.  Beginning at noon, families are invited to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the library lawn.  At 1:00 pm, in our air-conditioned auditorium, the Majestic Theater will be here to perform this summer’s show 3 Pigs and a Wolf.  Visit Parker Brown with us – a most unusual town filled with many a handful of zany characters. Join Calvin, Doctor Proctor, Gibble and Gobble Turkeys, and others as they do their best to confuse the Wolf (sometimes unintentionally) as he searches for the homes of the 3 Little Pigs.  The Wolf finally reaches the first Pig’s house and the rest is history.  You’ll never guess how this fun-filled musical ends!  For more information, please call 603-624-6550 ext. 7628.
