Parent to Parent and MHL Teen Services Librarians will facilitate a discussion of The 57 Bus, Dashka Slater's account of the true story of two very different teens whose paths crossed on a fateful bus trip. In School Library Journal, Kierra Parrot writes, "Slater artfully unfolds a complex and layered tale about two teens whose lives intersect with painful consequences. This work will spark discussions about identity, community, and what it means to achieve justice."
Parent-to-Parent is an organization dedicated to bringing informative and helpful speakers to area parents seeking more information on relevant child-rearing topics. Teen Services Librarians Renata Sancken and Anna Tschetter will help facilitate this discussion and invite tweens, teens, and their caregivers to discuss this timely story.
January 19, 2019, 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM @ Cochran Chapel, Phillips Academy
As part of Phillips Academy's celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy, the Department of Music will present a voice recital by James Dargan, baritone on Saturday, January 19 at 7:30 p.m. in Cochran Chapel on the Phillips Academy campus. The recital entitled, Oh Glory! Black History Matters, grew out of a desire to celebrate Black American musical history. Dargan takes us through the history of some Black musicians in the twentieth century.
In Dargan's words: "Oh, Glory! (is) a program celebrating these artists and Black history through the music of these five legendary Black singers." Dargan believes, "Art isn't segregated…When we see the totality of these Black artists, then it becomes clear: Black History Matters, because Black Lives Matter. Because Lives Matter."
This concert is free and open to the public. Cochran Chapel is handicapped accessible. For more information call the Music Department at (978) 749-4260 or e-mail to email@example.com.

Internet predators stalk kids to prey on their innocence, taking advantage of children's innocence, violating their trust and ultimately luring them into dangerous personal encounters. These predators roam social media and game sites that appease children. They can exploit children's innocence and their gift of imagination. Predators can use the hook of gaming standards that involve getting them to play the pretence game to pull them. Be present at the "Child Internet Safety" to learn how to guide against bullying.

Here’s your chance to give in to that irresistible urge to look behind the “staff only” and “no entry” signs you always see in museums. What will you find? What treasures lie in store rooms and archives? As you tour the Blanchard house attics, closets, nooks and crannies, you’ll also hear stories about rarely seen collections items. The stories will change with every tour, so there will always be something new to learn.

Don Robb's six-week course starts today and will explore the history (and the myths) of the American West from the perspective of five different frontiers: the Mining Frontier, the Railroad Frontier, the Ranching Frontier, the Farming Frontier, and the Indian Frontier. Each frontier affected each of the other frontiers, and together pioneered the vast area of plains and mountains from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean.
