Milton Public Library announces adult programming for July 2024

During the month of July, the Milton Public Library has some fun and educational programs happening for adults.  On Tuesday, July 9, at 7:00 p.m., there will be another Adult Yoga class with Sheila Armstrong. In this free program, come and join us for this free program which is a one-hour fluid yoga experience in our Keys Community Room.  We will practice asanas (yoga poses) and breathing techniques to come into the present moment, and create more space in our minds and bodies.  Space is limited so please sign up in advance here:

On Monday, July 15, from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m., please join “Booked for Lunch” which is our newest book club with Assistant Director Sara Truog, to be held in the Conference Room.  This is a silent book club: a half hour of socializing and eating lunch together, and a half hour of silent reading time.  We’ll talk about what books we’re reading and share our top picks (and maybe the duds too).  Participants should bring a bag lunch and a book to read.  This program is for adults only, and registration is required so please use this link to sign up:

The Monthly Wednesday Movie for Adults will happen on July 24, starting at 6:15 p.m. and the film to be screened is: “A Haunting in Venice.  It stars Kenneth Branagh, Kyle Allen, Camille Cotton, Jamie Dorman, Tina Fey and more great actors.  Inspired by the novel Halloween Party and directed by Branagh in 2023, this film is set in eerie, post-World War II Venice on All Hallows Eve, and is a terrifying mystery featuring the return of the celebrated sleuth, Hercule Poirot.  Now retired and living in self-imposed exile in the world’s most glamorous city, Poirot reluctantly attends a séance at a decaying, haunted palazzo.  When one of the guests is murdered, the detective is thrust into a sinister world of shadows and secrets.  Please join us!  The movie is rated PG-13 for some strong violence, disturbing images and thematic elements, so it is not appropriate for young children.  The running time is l hour, 85 minutes.  No signup is required so just come and enjoy a couple of hours in our cool, relaxing Keys Community Room!

There will be a virtual talk called “All About Foxes” with Naturalist Bob Michelson, who will be back on Tuesday, July 23, at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom.  Bob will share with us everything he knows about foxes found in New England – and elsewhere around the U.S. –  in this interesting presentation.  Follow this wildlife photographer as he documents the complete life histories of the foxes from our area, including the Red Fox and the Gray Fox.  He also looks at each animal’s historic and current ranges for each Fox species, as well as what we can do to co-exist with these beautiful predators.  This program requires advance registration to receive the zoom code, so please join us by signing up using this link:

And last but not least, historian Bob Begin will return on Tuesday, July 30, at 7:00 p.m. in our Keys Community Room to give a fun talk about Captain Bligh and “Mutiny on the Bounty.”   The status and growth of the British Empire was a result of her Royal Navy, the most powerful in the world during the 1700s.  In 1787, William Bligh is appointed commander of a voyage to the South Seas.  His vessel, HMS Bounty, is not a famous warship but should be adequate for a mission to Tahiti to gather samples of breadfruit plants, which were thought to be a quick-growing source of food.  The Bounty was modified to meet all of the needs of safety and transport of the plants.  Their safe arrival from Tahiti was paramount. The Bounty left England in December 1787.  She would arrive in Tahiti in October after a journey of 28,000 miles.  She was welcomed by the natives of this exotic, scenic land.  Following a stay of 23 weeks, on April 5th, she set sail for England with over 1,000 breadfruit plants on board.  Four weeks later, a mutiny took place.  Her Captain and 18 men loyal to him were placed in a 23 foot open launch.  The Bounty, under control of Fletcher Christain, would sail for Tahiti.  What happened to the men in the open boat, what happened to the mutineers, and what was the reaction of the Royal Navy?   The answers will be based on Bligh’s Log and Royal Navy records.  No advance registration is required to attend and we hope you might join us!
