Family Movie & Pizza Night - Zootopia!
Hop on over at 5 pm on February 12 for free pizza and Disney's delightful Zootopia! Something is afoot in the urban jungle of Zootopia, and it is up to rookie Judy Hopps, the first bunny on the predator-dominated police force, to solve the case - with the assistance of wily fox Nick Wilde. Winner of the 2017 Oscar for Best Animated film, and featuring the voice talents of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba and more. RSVP on our Facebook page or by calling or signing up at the library so that we can be sure to have enough pizza for all. For more information, contact the library at 354-2453.
Let's Talk About It Book Club - The Age of Innocence
We are delighted to announce another series facilitated by Lee Heffner and brought to us through the Maine Humanities Council. MHC's "Let's Talk About It" series dealing with the Gilded Age kicks off on February 13th at 11 am. Our first book is The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton--the first book written by a female to win a Pulitzer Prize.
As described on Goodreads, "The Age of Innocence is Edith Wharton’s masterful portrait of desire and betrayal during the sumptuous Golden Age of Old New York, a time when society people 'dreaded scandal more than disease.'
This is Newland Archer’s world as he prepares to marry the beautiful but conventional May Welland. But when the mysterious Countess Ellen Olenska returns to New York after a disastrous marriage, Archer falls deeply in love with her. Torn between duty and passion, Archer struggles to make a decision that will either courageously define his life—or mercilessly destroy it."
Always a lively group, we welcome anyone interested to join in! Refreshments are served. For questions or additional information call the library at 354-2453 or check on our social media sites.
Communi-TEA - Choose Kindness
Join us for afternoon tea on February 16 from 3 to 4:30 PM! Delicious treats and hot tea will be served, and all are welcome in the community living room at Thomaston Public Library.
This month, Communi-TEA falls during Random Acts of Kindness week! We are encouraging everyone to choose kindness and put a little more positivity into the world. Some suggestions from randomactsofkindness.org:
1. Pay it Backward: buy coffee for the person behind you in line.
2. Compliment the first three people you talk to today.
3. Send a positive text message to five different people right now.
4. Post inspirational sticky notes around your neighborhood, office, school, etc.
5. Put 50 paper hearts in a box. On each cutout write something that is special about your partner or a friend. Give them the box and tell them to pull out a heart anytime they need a pick-me-up.
More great suggestions can be found here: https://goo.gl/zYbBR4
We would also like to encourage folks to choose kindness and support their neighbors by bringing to Communi-TEA a non-perishable food, pet care, or personal care item to donate to the food pantry!
