Milton Public Library releases July schedule of virtual programs
The Milton Public Library continues to offer a fun slate of virtual programs via Zoom for adults and families each week. We encourage you to check out an enjoyable topic this summer online. Registration is required in advance for most programs and you can find all the details on our website.
Tuesday, July 7th, at 7:00 p.m., there will be a talk called “Native Plant Gardening for Wildlife” with Photographer Joy Marzolf. Ms. Marzolf is the Education Coordinator of Mass Audubon’s Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary and this will be a great educational and visual experience! Are you a butterfly or bird lover? The best way to attract local wildlife to your yard is to plant native plants. Animals need plants for many reasons, including shelter and food. Many even have preferred food plants, so “if you plant it, they will come.” Learn how gardening choices can help you turn your garden into your own wildlife sanctuary. Registration is required and signup opens on June 16th.
On Wednesday, July 22nd, at 7:00 p.m., join Library Director Will Adamczyk for a casual conversation about books, what you are reading, and what you should be reading in his “Summer Reads Book Group” via Zoom. You can talk about summer reading, beach reads, and what you are looking forward to. Bring a title to share, and listen to what others have been reading. Registration is required and opens on July 1st. Please join Will for a fun, interactive discussion!
Tuesday, July 28th at 7:00 p.m., there will be a talk called “Armchair Travel: Galapagos – Enchanted Islands of the Pacific” with Barry Pell. The Galapagos Islands may just inspire you to think differently about the world. Located on a remote archipelago of volcanic islands 600 miles west of Ecuador’s Pacific coast, the Galapagos is home to massive tortoises, scurrying iguana lizards, playful sea lions, and a menagerie of exceptional birds from blue-footed boobies to red pouched frigate birds. This isolated group of islands is a nearly pristine showcase of biodiversity. Photojournalist Barry Pell is a world traveler and he has visited and documented landscapes and cultures in nearly 170 countries on all continents. Registration is required for this colorful and fascinating look at a beautiful place! Signup opens on July 7th.
There are more July adult programs in the works, so please keep checking our website for upcoming details about them.
Also, the “Celebrity Book Club” with Sally Lawler and Sara Truog will happen on Thursday, July 30th at 7:00 p.m. Read what the celebrities are reading, and then staff will lead you in a fun, relaxed discussion of a recommended book, so please check it out. The next book is Such a Fun Age by Kiley Read and it was recommended by Trevor Noah. Registration is required on our website for this enjoyable Zoom event.
