Holiday Mail for Heroes: Create a Card Workshop

Holiday Mail for Heroes

Once a year the American Red Cross delivers holiday cards to veterans, military families, and active duty service members at hospitals and installations around the world. This year the Wallingford Public Library will participate!

Adults are welcome to join local resident Doll Barnes and create holiday cards to send to our troops this holiday season. We'll supply the materials and get the finished cards to the post office too. For more information please visit the Red Cross.

Additionally, you may sign a card provided by the Library. Cards will be available to sign beginning November 13 on Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and Fridays from 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. in the lower level of the Library.

Reel Conversations: Days of Heaven

Days of Heaven

Saturday October 26th, 2:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Our fall film series “Unlikely Partners” continues this month with Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven, a story of love and murder told through the jaded voice of a child and the expressive images of nature.

In 1916, Chicago steelworker Bill (Richard Gere), his little sister Linda (Linda Manz) and girlfriend Abby (Brooke Adams), flee to Texas, where they work the harvest at a wealthy, ailing farmer’s ranch. The farmer (playwright Sam Shepard) falls in love with Abby. Seeing it as his one real chance to escape perpetual poverty, Bill urges Abby to marry the sick man. Marriage, however, has more restorative powers, and the farmer has more magnetism, than Bill had planned.

Calling all WPL Association members and Downton Abbey Fans!

Monday October 28th, 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room

From the Gilded Age until 1914, more than 100 American heiresses invaded Britannia and swapped dollars for titles--just like Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, the first of the Downton Abbey characters Julian Fellowes was inspired to create after reading To Marry an English Lord.

Please join us for an informative and entertaining evening when we conduct our 133rd annual meeting with special guest Carol Wallace, author of To Marry an English Lord. Ms. Wallace will share some of the fascinating stories and anecdotes from her book and at the conclusion of her presentation, books will be available for purchase and signing. (Great Christmas gifts for those Downton Abbey fans in your life!)
