Grandfamilies With Author Gayle Byrne

Wednesday, March 9th at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Room

More than 6 million children in the United States are being raised by grandparents or a relative other than their parent – that’s roughly 1 out of every 12 children in this country. Author and Children’s Librarian, Gayle Byrne is one of those grandparents raising a grandchild and her book, Sometimes It’s Grandmas and Grandpas Not Mommies and Daddies addresses this important issue.

Join Gayle in a discussion of this non-traditional family dynamic as she shares her book, and identifies the special needs of these “skipped generation families” in which parents are unable or unwilling to raise their own children.

This program is co-sponsored by the Wallingford Public Library and WECARE. Certificates of Attendance will be available to any who require them. There will be an opportunity to purchase Gayle’s book and have it signed for those who are interested.

To register for this program please contact the Children's Library at (203)284-6436.

Friday Night Flicks Presents: You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger

Friday, March 4th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger movie posterYou Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is classic Woody Allen — an ensemble cast of brilliant actors, a timeless story that could be set virtually anywhere and crisp writing and direction that neither lollygags or rushes. As with most recent Woody films, there is no Woody character here, in other words a central neurotic male role that he would have played when younger. And as with most recent films, it's a bit hard to tell where the comedy ends and the drama begins; they're swirled together throughout. If you like Woody, this is a must-see. Rated R.
