wbn logo no date

On World Book Night, 25,000 book givers each give away 20 copies of a specially-printed, not-for-resale World Book Night U.S. edition of a book they have read and loved, chosen from a list of 30 titles selected by a panel of librarians and booksellers. The volunteer book givers personally hand out their copies to complete strangers, people who may never have owned a book of their own.

The library will be celebrating by handing out our special world book night selection as well as brand new children’s books for any child that attends all day long.

More events to come! Check the library website soon for more information.

We encourage children and adults, to join us for a night of fun.

19th Century Circus: Sex, Violence and PoliticsA lecture by David Carlyon
Saturday, May 10 at 2pm in the Library’s Annex

In Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain described a circus as “the splendidest sight that ever was.” But despite this sweetly innocent image from 1883, Twain knew that circus before the Civil War had been raw stuff for rowdy audiences. Touring circus presented performers in skimpy clothes, and performances with a strong hint of sex. Reflecting a participatory age, talking clowns told dirty jokes and political jokes, bantering with raucous audiences. (One clown, Dan Rice, was nationally famous for his political wit, then ran for president – legitimately – from the ring.) The circus had to fight locals daily, with Hudson River towns especially notorious. But by the 1880s rowdiness became considered vulgar, the circus turned into innocent family amusement, and a sentimental symbol. Why did the circus change? How did politics change? How did America change?
