2016 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. The library has celebrated Shakespeare this year with live theater and the BBC series "Playing Shakespeare". As the year draws to a close, we'll watch four unusual film productions in our mini film festival, "Shakespeare Outside the Box"
We begin with Sir Ian McKellen as Richard III, set in a fascist 1930's Britain. Stay for a brief discussion after the film, released in 1995.
This event has been cancelled.
Folk, camp, and cowboy songs of the Old West - all with a children's twist! Yee-Haw!
Have you ever had a psychic experience? Would you like to? This Halloween season come explore the mysteries of the mind with Intuitionist Courtney Kolb.
In this entertaining and interactive performance we will experience intuition and psychic abilities, fortunetelling and more.
If time allows we will conduct a short seance and give each audience member a chance to get a 'glimpse behind the veil.'
