Summer Art Series -
Millbrook
Saturday, Jun. 19, 10:00 AM
Join local Artist June Glasson & poet Abbey Gallagher to create your own personal “Domestic Banner” using antique embroidered fabrics. This is an in-person art class on the library front lawn, but patrons who would like to participate remotely may. Participants, both in-person and remote, will be provided with materials -  an antique embroidered fabric, thread, needles, beads, etc - with which they can create a banner containing text or images that tell their story. Abbey will also lead a short generative writing session for folks needing help with text for their banner. 


These sessions are part of our Summer Art Series! Join Millbrook-based artists June Glasson and Adam Brandow this summer for a series of art gatherings in partnership with the Millbrook Library. There will be three different units focusing on craft, painting, and photography held outdoors and with COVID-safe protocol. You are welcome to bring your own supplies and equipment, but the library will provide everything else you need (except for cameras).

June MillBook Club -
Millbrook
Friday, Jun. 25, 6:00 PM
Come join the MillBook Club for our June read, Untamed by Glennon Doyle, celebrating Pride Month.

A New York Times bestseller, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family, and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each member’s ability to bring her full self to the table. And it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts.

Get the book from the library or listen to the audiobook through our e-resources and come discuss the book with us on June 25 at 6pm! We’d love to have you there! This event is held online through Zoom. Please register ahead of time to get the Zoom link.

Film Club: Moonlight
Millbrook
Tuesday, Jun. 29, 6:00 PM
Join us for the second meeting of the Millbrook Library’s Film Club. Until we can offer screenings in person, our discussion will be held virtually with patrons watching two paired films on their own schedule. At the end of the month, we will meet together to discuss both films.

 For Pride month, we will be watching Barry Jenkin’s Moonlight (2016) and Jennie Livingston’s Paris is Burning (1990) and holding our discussion on June 29th at 6pm. Moonlight, the 2017 Oscar Winner for Best Picture, is a coming-of-age story about a gay Black boy growing up in Miami. Paris is Burning is a joyful and heart-wrenching documentary about the ballroom drag scene in New York. 

Watch one or both films on your own time and then come and discuss with us!
