January programs at the Milton Public Library
The Milton Public Library is offering some fun events for adults and families during the month of January 2016. Join the current adult coloring book craze at a drop-in session called “Coloring and Cocoa” on Thursday, Jan. 14 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Research shows that creative activities like coloring and knitting ease people into a state of mind that allows them to push away negative thoughts and worries. All materials and a cup of cocoa will be provided by the Library. Also our drop-in workshop “Knitting with Nina” continues on Saturday, January 16 at 11:00 a.m. and “First Friday Book Chat with Will” will happen on Friday, January 8 at 11:00 a.m. The latter two programs will be held in the lower level Conference Room.
“Ricki and the Flash” starring Meryl Streep is the January movie for our “Tuesday Night at the Movies” series which will be on Jan. 19, starting promptly at 6:30 p.m.. This film tells the story of Ricki, a guitar heroine who gives up everything for rock ‘n roll stardom, who now returns home to make things right with her family. It is rated PG-13 for mature themes and language which may offend. On Saturday, Jan. 23 at 11 a.m., noted Italian language and culture expert Dr. Irene Roman will lead a special art appreciation program featuring one of Leonardo Da Vinci’s greatest artistic accomplishments, the painting “The Last Supper.” Dr. Roman will help the audience appreciate the importance of one of the world’s most famous paintings. Then on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 7:00 p.m., Library Director Will Adamczyk will host his “Eclectic Book Club with Will” to discuss the book The Martian by Andy Weir.
All library programs are open to the public, and are sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library. They are held in the Keys Community Room (lower level) unless otherwise indicated.
