The Pig Days of Summer

Have Arrived at the Library

We kicked off our summer reading program with a snort last Thursday, thanks to Animal Embassy. We had a wonderful time and are ready for a summer full of adventure. Check out our children's newsletter for all of our family friendly programs.

We still have two more concerts to have a chance to win tickets to Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in August.  Anyone who attends will be entered in a raffle to win two tickets the night of the concert. There is no fee to enter the raffle; you just have to stay until the end of the concert to claim your prize. If you are not there when the winner is pulled, we will pull another name.

Music in the Annex Concert Series 

Roger & Lenny

Saturday, July 13 at 7:30 PM

Roger Cohn and Lenny Sutton bring a fresh perspective to familiar—and not-so familiar—songs from a golden era of pop music. The duo’s musical strength of tight harmonies and straightforward acoustic arrangements with guitar and harmonica deliver spirited covers of songs made famous by The Everly Brothers, Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles and others, as well as original tunes. You can keep up with the duo by checking out Roger & Lenny’s Facebook page.

Songwriters Showcase

Saturday, June 22 at 7:30 PM

Hear the stories and inspiration behind the songs by the musicians who wrote them, featuring Sarah Kohrs, Li, Lance Middlebrook, and Eliot Osborne.

Sarah Kohrs is a talented musician and prolific songwriter. Her thoughtful compositions have a pop flare and bring to mind the work of Joni Mitchell or Stephen Sondheim. Sarah has performed locally as well as in New York; Asheville, NC; Baton Rouge, LA; and New Orleans.

Li is a multidisciplinary artist from New York cultivating a diverse body of work comprised of
poetic storytelling and performance art in a stylistic amalgamation of genres he has come to
identify as Urban Folk.

Lance Middlebrook has spent a lifetime searching for that phrase, feeling or dream from
which a song can be created. He’s had his songs recorded by multiple artists including The
Shoppe and Johnny Lee as well as winning numerous national songwriting awards. After
an 18 year stint in Nashville, he returned to the Northeast to continue writing and
performing. Currently one half of the duo Ten Mile.

Eliot Osborn has been writing songs for more than fifty years. He has won numerous songwriting
awards ( American Song Festival, Billboard Song Festival), and recorded with internationally
recognized producers and musicians in New York, Los Angeles, Nashville, Muscle Shoals, and
Atlanta. He performs locally with the Joint Chiefs and appears around New England with The
Outerspace Band.

Artwork of Lori Barker

An exhibit in the Library from July 3 to July 27

Lori Barker’s mixed media work blends nature and spirituality into an exploration of the rhythms of life. Angels, in particular, inspire her and are Lori’s trusted muse. The work is about the poetry that lives beneath the surface of things where layers of paper, paint, wood, fabric, metal and images come alive creating an altered world. Solo exhibits in Connecticut include: Monastery Gallery West Hartford, Unitarian Meeting House Hartford, Miranda Winery, Jerrum Winery, The UCONN Library, Norfolk Artisan's Gallery, Atelier Gallery in New Milford, Church House Concerts, Haddam, the Gathering Place, Hartford, and New Milford, Torrington, and Waterbury Hospitals, St. Mary’s Hospital in Waterbury and numerous libraries including the Lucy Robbins in Newington, New Milford Library, Oliver Wolcott Library in Litchfield and the Hunt Library in Falls Village. Lori’s one-woman shows in other states include the Santarella Museum in Tyringham, MA, and the Smith Gallery in Manchester, VT. Lori lives in Goshen, CT where she and her late husband established a charming gallery and sculptural grounds. The Touch House (a straw bale construction building), Labyrinth and Purple Door gallery are open to the public by appointment only.

Book Discussion Group

Saturday, July 27 at 3 PM
When the Nazi Blitzkrieg subjugated Europe in World War II, London became the safe haven for the leaders of seven occupied countries--France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Norway, Czechoslovakia and Poland--who fled there to avoid imprisonment and set up governments in exile to commandeer their resistance efforts. The lone hold-out against Hitler's offensive, Britain became a beacon of hope to the rest of Europe, as prominent European leaders like French general Charles De Gaulle, Queen Wilhelmina of Holland, and King Haakon of Norway competed for Winston Churchill's attention while trying to rule their embattled countries from the precarious safety of 'Last Hope Island."
