Plenty of programs this Thursday

This Thursday is going to be unusually busy at the Libraries. Here's what we have planned in addition to our regular Thursday programs (Storytime for 3 to 5 year olds at Central at 11:00 a.m. and ESL classes at the West Branch at 6:00 and 7:15 p.m.)

Kidstock presents Jack & Jill & the Beanstalk
2:00 p.m. at the Central Library

For many years, Kidstock has been coming to the Library in the summer, offering a unique chance for kids and families to see children acting, singing, and overseeing a theatrical performance. Each Kidstock show is comically based on familiar plots with new twists, runs approximately 30-40 minutes long, and is ideally suited for ages 5 years and up. The actors will be hoping for volunteer assistance of young audience members as both onstage actors and offstage participants in this fun filled and dramatic presentation for all!

Groundwork Somerville
3:00 p.m. at the West Branch

Learn about harvesting around the world with Groundwork Somerville! Participants will learn how growing and harvesting food is important around the world through games, books, and activities. We will get to harvest Somerville-grown veggies planted in June and sample fruits and vegetables from around the world. This program is funded by the Friends of the Library and all are welcome.

The Small World Magic Show
3:00 p.m. at the East Branch
Magician Debbie O'Carroll's magic hat is on the fritz! Where in the world can she find a new one? Will she choose a wizard's hat from England, a sorcerer's turban from India, a conjurer's cap from China, a genie's fez from Turkey, a fairy godmother's hood from France, a seanachie's tam from Ireland, or a sprite's headdress from Ghana? Ages 4 to 11 will delight in this magical quest around the globe. This program is funded by the Friends of the Library and all are welcome to attend!

Poetry Writing Workshop
7:00 p.m. at the Central Library

The first session of a 4-part workshop led by Somerville resident Tamlin Neville. We will write poems in class. Bring paper and pen. All welcome.
