Upcoming Library Events: Emily Williston Memorial Library

From the Emily Williston Memorial Library, Easthampton

Upcoming Events!

Send a soldier a smile & some treats for the holiday ~ On Wednesday, November 19, we will decorate bags and fill holiday stockings with season's greetings and candy to send to our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sponsored by registered volunteer of booksforsoldiers.com, Linda Fortin. Complete information posted on the library's website

A Special Evening with local author and illustrator, Jeff Mack ~ On Wednesday, December 3, at 5:30 p.m. our patrons are invited to a special evening with local author and illustrator Jeff Mack. Jeff will read from his new picture books and talk about how he writes and illustrates children’s books. His newest books will be on sale and will make special holiday gifts since they will be personally signed by Jeff. It’s exciting that his new Halloween book Boo, Bunny was recently featured in People magazine! That evening we will also unveil a new mural that Jeff has created for our Youth Department and offer some yummy holiday refreshments.

Freedom of Expression: Resistance and Repression in the Age of Intellectual Property ~ On Tuesday, December 9, at 6:30 p.m. (snow date December 10), we will be showing the fascinating documentary film, Freedom of Expression: Resistance and Repression in the Age of Intellectual Property. This film was produced by Kembrew McLeod and our staff member Jeremy Smith, in conjunction with the Media Education Foundation in Northampton. This evening is a wonderful opportunity for patrons interested in creative freedom and the legal issues of copyright to converse together and with the film’s editor. Refreshments will be served.
