September Programs for Adults at Milton Public Library
The Milton Public Library is offering several fun and educational programs for adults during the month of September.
The “Job Doctor” employment advice service continues every Wednesday morning this month with Roni Noland, former career writer for the Boston Globe. The Job Doctor is here on the second floor of the library Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to noon and there is no charge, but you must walk in to sign up since we do not take advance reservations.
Also “Knitting with Nina,” the drop-in knitting workshop with expert Nina Zonnevylle, will be starting again on September 19th in the lower level Conference Room, and then continues throughout the Fall. It doesn’t matter what level knitter you are – novice or advanced – Nina will assist you with any project you bring into the class.
Library Director Will Adamczyk will continue his “First Friday Book Chat with Will” a little later in September on Friday, the 11th at 11 a.m. so please join him for a fun discussion about new and interesting books.
In addition, the “Tuesday Night at the Movies” film for September 22nd will be “5 Flights Up” which tells a wonderful story about a happily married couple, Ruth and Alex Carver, who have decided to cash in on their sought-after Brooklyn apartment. This 2015 thought-provoking comedy stars Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton, and is rated PG-13 for language and some nude images. It is not suitable for children. Screening starts promptly at 6:30 p.m. in the Keys Community Room.
On Wednesday, September 23rd at 7 p.m. please join Library Director Will Adamczyk at the Eclectic Book Club Meeting in the Conference Room. This month’s selection is Blindness by Jose Saramago. A city is hit by an epidemic of “white blindness” that spares no one. Authorities confine the blind to an empty mental hospital, but there the criminal element holds everyone captive, stealing food rations and assaulting women. There is one eyewitness to this nightmare who guides her charges – among them a boy with no mother, a girl with dark glasses – through the barren streets, and their procession becomes as uncanny as the surroundings are harrowing. As Blindness reclaims the age-old story of a plague, it evokes the vivid and trembling horrors of the twentieth century, leaving readers with a powerful vision of the human spirit that’s bound both by weakness and exhilarating strength. To order the book, call the Library at 617-698-5757 or order your copy online at www.miltonlibrary.org.
There will be a very entertaining concert for those piano lovers out there on Saturday, September 26th called “The History of Ragtime” with talented pianist/composer Deborrah Wyndham. Ms. Wyndham has given over 3,000 past performances, and plays a wide variety of music from ragtime and other early jazz styles to original contemporary music. With appearances on FOX, NBC, and ABC, listeners have described her playing as sounding “like four hands.” She performs regularly throughout the United States. This is a free event, great for the whole family, and it will begin at 2 p.m. in the Keys Community Room.
On Wednesday, September 30th at 6:30 p.m. Milton artist Sue Hoy returns to the Library to help you explore your creative side in a “Handpainted Wine Glass Workshop.” Each student creates two glasses using examples for inspiration or by creating your own design. Classes fill up quickly, and reservations are a must. Registration opens on September 8th at www.miltonlibrary.org.
All of these programs are proudly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library, and for more information go to www.miltonlibrary.org (click on “Events”) or contact Jean Hlady, Adult Services Librarian, at 617-698-5757.
