Flyer for Whales TodayStorrs Library is excited to host Cynde McInnis from The Whalemobile on Tuesday, January 26 at 6:30 on Zoom for "Whales Today."

Flyer for BelizeJoin Naturalist and Educator Joy Marzolf for Storrs Library's Around the World Nature Series for Belize: The Southern Wilds. Located in Eastern Central America, Belize shares borders with Guatemala and Mexico. From the crystal blue ocean waters and inland to the nearby mountains, it is amazingly diverse. Wildlife along the Southern coast, and nearby rivers, includes magnificent tiger herons, fast flyers like the cinnamon hummingbird and the peregrine falcon, and large swimmers like manatees and crocodiles. Traveling inland to the rainforest brings sightings of spectacular butterflies, birds, like the black headed trogon, but also mammals like the elusive jaguar and bands of coatimundi. Join us for a virtual trip to see some of the stunning wildlife of Southern Belize.

Great Decisions: Global Supply Chains and National Security
Great Decisions (virtual): Global supply chains and national securityElle Van Dermark, Associate Professor of History & Political Science at Asnuntuck Community College, will be the group facilitator for this series.
This month's topic: Global supply chains and national security.
The shutdown of global supply chains due to the Covid-19 pandemic brought to the fore an issue with the high level of global economic interdependence: what happens when one country is the main source for an item, say face masks, and then can no longer supply the item? Countries suddenly unable to meet the demand for certain supplies are faced with growing calls for economic nationalism. What are some of the lasting effects that the pandemic could have on global supply chains and trade? How would this affect national security?
 
 
Please Note: you only need to register once for the whole discussion series!
 
Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 - Upcoming Great Decisions discussions:
February 17, 2021: Persian Gulf Security Issues
March 3, 2021: Brexit and the European Union
March 17, 2021: Struggles Over the Melting Arctic

April 14, 2021: The Korean Peninsula

The Borders of Our Minds

Flyer for The Borders of Our MindsJoin Storrs Library as historian and journalist David Mould takes us on a journey to borders around the world, both real and imagined. In his latest book on travel, history, and culture, Postcards from the Borderlands, David explores the meaning of borders. Are they simply political and geographical, marked by posts, walls and fences, or should we think of them more broadly? Some borders, set by surveys and treaties, take no account of geography, language, and culture. There are borders within countries—physical, economic, or social. And finally there are the borders of our minds—the way we may think of unfamiliar places. 

David Mould, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Media Arts and Studies at Ohio University, has traveled widely in Asia and southern Africa. Born in the UK, he worked as a newspaper and TV journalist before moving to the US. Histravel essays and articles have been published in Newsweek, Christian Science Monitor, Times Higher Education, and History News Network.  His books include: Monsoon Postcards: Indian Ocean Journeys (Ohio University Press, 2019) and Postcards from Stanland: Journeys in Central Asia (Ohio University Press, 2016).

Sheryl Faye as Amelia Earhart

Flyer for Sheryl Faye as Amelia EarhartWe are excited to welcome back Sheryl Faye for her performance of Amelia Earhart, Pioneer in Aviation!

Amelia Earhart’s fearless, adventuresome spirit leads to hair-raising rides down her homemade roller coaster, and she is enthralled with the wonders of the new “flying machines” during a family vacation to the Iowa State Fair. As she matures, she is fulfilled by her work as a nurse’s aide and begins to consider a career in medicine. This idea “flies out the window,” however, when she pays a pilot $1.00 to take her up for a short “hop” in his plane. From then on, the science of aviation becomes her passion as flying becomes her career. She follows her dreams with an indomitable spirit, and her story will inspire everyone to pursue their own budding interests, whatever they may be, and will also reinforce the importance of family, respect for others and individuality.

Sponsored by FOLOCA and co-hosted by Longmeadow Adult Center and Storrs Library.

This is a 35 minute prerecorded show that will be available by password on Vimeo from 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm on Tuesday, March 9th. Register to receive the video link and password on the day of the program.

Paddy on the Railway: Irish and the building of the Great Western [Massachusetts] Railroad

Flyer for Paddy on the Railway: Irish and the building of the Great Western [Massachusetts] RailroadJoin Storrs Library and Longmeadow Historical Society for a discussion with Dennis Picard on Irish laborers and their role in the building of the Massachusetts Western Railroad in the 19th century. The Western Railroad of Massachusetts was a five-year project charted in February 1833. It linked Boston and Worcester to Springfield, and reached across the Connecticut River to the New York state line. Thousands of skilled and unskilled workers from many different ethnic groups contributed to the labor of this project, with the majority of laborers being of Irish birth or heritage. "Paddy on the Railway" revisits this 1830s construction project and its accomplishments owed to the vast amounts of manual toil, as well as how the Irish, who had been looked down upon by other parts of society, came to be recognized for their contributions to the effort.

Dennis Picard has been a museum professional in the living history field for over 30 years at both Old Sturbridge Village and Storrowton Village Museum.  He has authored many articles on the lifestyles and folkways of New England and served as a consultant for historical societies and museums. Dennis is also the host of the "Treasures from the Attic" series with Longmeadow Historical Society and Storrs Library.

Virtual: Suriname and Guyana: Land of the Giants (grades 6-Adult)
Flyer for Suriname and GuyanaJoin Wayne Sentman the Director of Conservation Travel Programs for the Oceanic Society for Storrs Library's Around the World Nature Series for Suriname and Guyana: Land of the Giants. Formerly Dutch Guyana, Suriname has been independent since 1975 and is one of the least densely populated countries in the world. Similarly, Guyana also has a very low population density, and both feature stunning, remote natural areas. Explore some of Suriname's and Guyana's unique biodiversity, including Kaieteur Falls in Guyana, home to the beautiful Cock-of-the-Rock and the longest single-drop waterfall in the world, the coastal beaches which support the worlds' second largest leatherback sea turtle nesting area, and the Central Suriname Reserve, one of the ten largest tropical forest reserves in the Amazon. With their high biodiversity and large portions of their land areas set aside as protected parks, Guyana and Suriname offer unparalleled, and off the beaten track opportunities for exploration in South America.
 
This program is part of the Nature Series with Storrs Library presented by Joy Marzolf and Wayne Sentman. This series will take place the first Tuesday of the month from September through May. Enjoy additional activities and programs in our Around the World Reading Challenge in Beanstack. Register for this challenge at longmeadowlibrary.beanstack.org.
