Cinema Club Presents The Maltese Falcon

Join us for a showing and discussion of The Maltese Falcon on Tuesday, December 2 at 6:30 pm. The Maltese Falcon is still the tightest, sharpest, and most cynical of Hollywood's official deathless classics. Humphrey Bogart is Dashiell Hamett's definitive private eye, Sam Spade, struggling to keep his hard-boiled cool as the double-crosses pile up around his ankles. This is the role that made Bogart a star and established his trend-setting (and still influential) antihero persona.

Anime/Manga Swap

The Teen Anime Club will be meeting in the Community Room on Tuesday, November 18, 6:00-8:00 p.m. Bring any anime or manga that you don't watch or read anymore and trade it in for something else. Don't have anything to trade? That's okay, just come to hang out and meet other teens who love anime and manga as much as you do. We will be watching .hack//sign in surround-sound on the high definition big screen. All teens are welcome. Register in person, online, or by phone at (203)265-6754.

Holiday Closing

The Library will close at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, November 26 and will remain closed on Thursday, November 27 and Friday, November 28 in observance of Thanksgiving. Regular hours resume Saturday, November 29.

Local Author Karen E. Olson To Speak

Unlike her fictional police reporter Annie Seymour, Karen E. Olson never found a body in her trunk or had to swim for her life across New Haven Harbor. A former reporter herself, Ms. Olson was born and raised in New Haven. Sacred Cows, her first novel in the Annie Seymour series, received the Mysterious Press Sara Ann Freed Memorial Award for a debut mystery novel. Currently a North Haven resident, Ms. Olson features a different area of New Haven in each of her books.

Join us on Thursday, November 13th at 7:00 pm for a lively presentation by Karen E. Olson. Shot Girl, her latest book, will be available for purchase and signing.

Holiday Closing

The Library will be closed on Tuesday, November 11 in observance of Veterans Day. Regular hours resume on Wednesday, November 12.

We Love You, Too

"Are libraries facing the same fate as video stores, hard copy newspapers and the big thick phonebook?" asked WTNH News Channel 8 on their blog. Imagine our joy when we discovered that numerous respondents used Wallingford Public Library as an example of the value of libraries as a whole.

"Come and see Wallingford's very recent library expansion - beautiful!"

"The Wallingford Library is so amazing that I swear I could live there."

"My little one loves getting books and reading them under the tree in the children's area. It would be a shame to lose any library and I am very glad that Wallingford chose to expand ours."

Thank you for being the best library patrons in the world.
