Parent/Child Book Group
Attleboro Public Library, Monday, July 25 at 8pm
Grades 3 & 4 -- Great books, fun discussion and snacks! We will meet once a month for a book discussion at the library. Each month is a different book and you can pick up a copy of the books in the Attleboro Public Library Children's Room. This month we'll be reading Geronimo & the Gold Medal Mystery by Geronimo Stilton.
Geronimo Stilton is not a sportsmouse. He prefers relaxing in an armchair. However, with the Olympics coming up, sports are all anyone in New Mouse City can talk about. And a reporter like Geronimo can't help but investigate an Olympic mystery.

Movie Night
Dighton Public Library, Wednesday, July 27 at 7pm
This fill-in-the-blanks children's comedy from Disney was such a success that it spawned a number of fill-in-the-blanks sequels -- along with a real-life professional hockey team. The basic story -- outcast coach handles a team of outcast kids and turns them from losers into winners -- has been told in a number of films, including Wildcats, The Bad News Bears, Hoosiers, and Youngblood. Here the sport is hockey. Emilio Estevez is Gordon Bombay, a high-powered lawyer haunted by an incident from his past: while playing pee-wee league hockey as a child, young Gordon missed a crucial shot in the state finals game, invoking the wrath of his coach, Mr. Reilly (Lane Smith). When Gordon is arrested for drunk driving, the judge orders him to take a leave of absence and coach a hockey team of misfit kids. At first, Gordon treats the coaching job with contempt. But when his team loses to a team led by his old coach Reilly, the fire under Gordon is lit. Inspired, he leads his team on a mission to succeed. The team begins to win games and soon they are ready to face Reilly's team for the big championship game. Author: Paul Brenner
Munch on popcorn and snacks while we cheer on the Mighty Ducks. Check out the library's collection of books on hockey and ducks before and after the movie. (added from Eventkeeper)

How To Talk About Slavery in 2016
Attleboro Public Library, Wednesday, July 27 at 7:30pm
We are pleased to have Ray Rickman here tonight as he discusses slavery and how it positively affected the Rhode Island economy.
Ray Rickman is a former state representative from Providence's College Hill area. He served as Rhode Island Deputy Secretary of State from 2000-2002. Ray Rickman is a rare book dealer and is considered a leader in the promotion of African American history. He conducts architectural and African American history tours in the Brown University area of Providence.
Ray will draw on his extensive knowledge of both Rhode Island history and African American history/culture to highlight the effect Slavery had on this state and how we are still dealing with these effects today. He explains the economic basis of slavery and its African origins. He provides detailed information on how many Rhode Islanders were involved and how it elevated the entire economy of the state. Attention is paid to every aspect of the trade including manufacturing of "Negro" cloth and the building of slave ships with wood and material from every town in Rhode Island.
We invite you to join us! Please sign up here. (added from Eventkeeper)

This show is performed in Grammelot, a universal gibberish language first developed by traveling clowns and minstrels during The Middle Ages. It consists of a few real words from various languages, and lots of nonsense sounds in between. Grammelot cut through the many language barriers that existed back in those days of isolated villages and hamlets. It serves Alex today, as he often works abroad.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Norfolk Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
