This and That …

The town Charter Review Committee is surveying the citizens of Falmouth, and we thought you should know! We have paper copies in the library, or you can print out a copy from the town’s web page. Here is the link that takes you directly to the survey: http://www.falmouthmass.us/crc/public%20survey.pdf

They are looking for public input, and would like the surveys back by May 1st, so you still have a couple of weeks to let your voice be heard.

Some great library programs over the next two days! In the book Bull Run, “Northerners, Southerners, generals, couriers, dreaming boys and worried sisters describe the glory, the horror, the thrill, and the disillusionment of the first battle of the Civil War.” As a reader’s theater, actors will read from the text, with emotion, but minimal props and costumes. This performance will take place on Friday, April 20th at 1:30 p.m. We have put together a terrific cast, and in peeking in at the rehearsals it looks like it will be a moving, multimedia experience. They have worked hard this week to put the show together, so come support your neighbors and learn something about Bull Run at the same time!

On Saturday the Friends Annual Meeting is happening where you not only get a free lunch you can also participate in the Playing with Shakespeare program! Laurie Heineman (who you may have seen in the documentary A Touch of Greatness) will be leading the fun! Playing with Shakespeare is about two performances. One, by award-winning actress and educator Laurie Heineman, you watch. The other, to a shortened script of Hamlet by William Shakespeare, you play, performing the role of your choice in the scene of your choice, along with others in the group. You don’t need experience or acting talent or knowledge of literary classics to participate in Playing with Shakespeare. All you need to do is sit back and relax as Laurie offers a scene-by-scene telling of the play’s story. It’s Shakespeare as he’s never before been presented to you. The festivities begin at 11:00, but NOT in the library, this will be happening at the First Congregational Church.

As amazing as this is to me (because I was here when the group started), the Friends of FPL are celebrating their 20th anniversary!! I’ll be there, and I hope you’ll stop by as well to congratulate them on this amazing milestone! We could not possibly do all we do without the support of the Friends.
