Now till September 2nd. This year our Adult Summer Reading Game explores the world of the arts. Participants might win a prize, but they will definitely end up with a fine piece of art. Reading a book from one of six art-based categories: acting; architecture; literature; music; painting; and other visual arts earns you one chance in the Game’s raffle. You can enter in person at the Information Desk desk or online. Keep track of your progress using the beautiful color by numbers drawing.

Thursday, June 30th at 11:15-noon on Zoom. Step back in time with Professor Edwin O’Donnell as we explore six innovative decades from the Gilded Age (1865 – 1900) through the Progressive Era (1900-1920). Marked by economic, political, social, and technological upheavals, the U.S. went from an agrarian, isolationist country to the greatest industrial power and a nascent geopolitical superpower. Meet inventors, conservationists, robber barons, civil rights activists, and industrialists, who together forged a new nation.
For those participating via Zoom you can watch the episodes before on Kanopy and then join the discussion at 11:15 via Zoom. A link will be sent out the day before to everyone on the Great Courses email list.

Fridays at 9:00 am. The Larchmont and Mamaroneck Public Libraries and John C. Hart Memorial Library invites all to join in an engaging program designed to help everyone in these stressful times. BREATH-BODY-MIND™ (BBM) is a program of gentle movement, breathing and relaxation exercises that reduce the experience of stress and anxiety and increase a sense of calm and well-being. These exercises are simple and evidence-based in their impact on an array of populations – including children, adults and individuals with depression or PTSD.
BBM’s simple, effective breathing techniques have been demonstrated to relieve stress and improve mood, mental focus and performance.
