Timothy Burris gives Summer Classical Music Concert
Friday, Jun. 23, 7PM
Before Andres Segovia, there was Francisco Tárrega, arguably the founder of the modern school of guitar playing. In addition to his work as a concertizing artist and composer, Tárrega was an inspiring teacher who influenced a generation of students. Several of those students, in turn, went on to significant careers as composers, concert artists, and teachers.

Timothy Burris will perform a program of classical guitar music by Francisco Tárrega and several of his students, including Miguel Llobet, Emilio Pujol, and Daniel Fortea. Works by Tárrega's own teacher, Julian Arcas, round out the program.

Mr.  Burris will perform the works on a guitar built for him by Richard Berg (Ottawa), a copy of an 1864 instrument presented by the father of the modern classical guitar, Antonio Torres, to a youthful Francisco Tárrega. 

This amazing summer concert is offered free-of-charge.  A variety of classical music performed by Mr. Burris will be available on CD for purchase this same evening.

Think coloring is just for kids?  Not anymore!

Why all of this fuss over coloring books?  First of all, it’s just plain fun!  But current day research also indicates that coloring de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, providing a healthy break from our highly scheduled, technology-dependent lives.
 
The Freeport Community Library is providing a dedicated space every Wednesday morning for anyone 18 and older who would like to drop-in at 10:30am and color for an hour or so.  The library provides an assortment of materials including highly detailed coloring book pages for you to choose from, colored pencils, and a large assortment of crayons.  Or, bring your own coloring book pages to copy and share with the group, which numbered eight coloring enthusiasts at the first meeting!

Free Thursday movie - A United Kingdom (2017) - starring David Oyelowo & Rosamund Pike
Thursday, Jul. 20, 1:00 PM
Directed by Amma Asante and released in 2016, this film stars David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike.

In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. They were a perfect match, yet their proposed marriage was challenged not only by their families but by the British and South African governments. The latter had recently introduced the policy of apartheid and found the notion of a biracial couple ruling a neighboring country intolerable. South Africa threatened the British: either thwart the couple or be denied access to South African uranium and gold and face the risk of South Africa invading Botswana.

All Thursday films are closed-caption.

Freeport Community Library welcomes the general public and library members alike to this fun film free-of-charge. Rated PG-13, it is 111 minutes in length. For directions to the library go to: www.freeportlibrary.com or call (207)865-3307.
