Lunar Landing Smart Robots!, Ages 11+
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
This workshop aims to explain and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing. Students will learn basic concepts of robotics and, working in teams, they will learn coding to instruct a simple robot to move in construction challenges.
 
A big part of the workshop is hands-on practice using a Raspberry PI. The Pi programming environment allows you to do many things with a tiny credit-card-sized computer. The set-up is easy for beginners, challenging for experienced programmers, and fun for everyone! (1½ hour session, age 11 and above)
 
This program is brought to you with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

A Living Person's Guide to Dying: Digital Estate Planning w/ Nicholas Daviau
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

In conjunction with NIH and NLM, Sharon Public Library presents A Living Person's Guide to Dying, a multi-part speaker series about death and dying, green burials, digital estate planning, and more. Although death is an inevitable reality of life, we often delay conversations about the topic until after the fact--a habit that can create unnecessary stress or confusion about our end-of-life wishes. The Library is seeking to launch an honest, open series of discussions around this important topic.

Tonight, join Nicholas Daviau, Esq. of Daviau Law Offices for a presentation on what "digital estate planning" means, why it is important to consider as part of your overall estate planning process, and how to start planning for yourself.

A Living Person's Guide to Dying: Planning for Death w/ Kristen Fumarola
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

In conjunction with NIH and NLM, Sharon Public Library presents A Living Person's Guide to Dying, a multi-part speaker series about death and dying, green burials, digital estate planning, and more. Although death is an inevitable reality of life, we often delay conversations about the topic until after the fact--a habit that can create unnecessary stress or confusion about our end-of-life wishes. The Library is seeking to launch an honest, open series of discussions around this important topic.

Tonight, join Kristen Fumarola of Peaceful Passage at Home for a workshop-style presentation on the value of planning for death before a crisis occurs, plus which practical questions to consider while planning--including comfort and care preferences, environmental design near time of death, logistical details such as passwords and keys, funerary considerations, heirlooms or other special belongings, and more.

 


"Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it." --Haruki Murakami

A Living Person's Guide to Dying: Green Burials
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

In conjunction with NIH and NLM, Sharon Public Library presents A Living Person's Guide to Dying, a multi-part speaker series about death and dying, green burials, digital estate planning, and more. Although death is an inevitable reality of life, we often delay conversations about the topic until after the fact--a habit that can create unnecessary stress or confusion about our end-of-life wishes. The Library is seeking to launch an honest, open series of discussions around this important topic.

Tonight, join a representative from Green Burial Massachusetts, Inc. for a discussion about what green or natural burial is, its environmental benefits, and who to contact if you are interested in a natural burial for yourself.

 


"Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it." --Haruki Murakami


This project has been funded in whole or in part with federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, under Cooperative Agreement UG4LM012347-01 with the University of Massachusetts, Worcester.
