For the Love of Mars
Monday, June 3, 2-3:15 p.m.
This Zoom program is a human history of the Red Planet with Smithsonian curator Matt Shin. Mars and its secrets have fascinated and mystified humans since ancient times.

Get the Dirt on Composting
Thursday, June 6, 6:30-7:45 p.m.

Narcan, the brand name of the generic drug naloxone, is a life-saving medication that can reverse an overdose from opioids.

Read In Peace: Silent Book Club
Tuesday, June 11, 6-7 p.m.
Read In Peace allows participants to read whatever they want without interruptions. Individuals are invited to bring their own book or pick out a book on their way into the library. Then, readers will meet on the lower level for some uninterrupted literary enjoyment.

This Zoom program is a conversation with Freida McFadden, the queen of twists. McFadden will chat about writing psychological thrillers — her mega-bestselling hit “The Housemaid” series, in particular, and her forthcoming third installment, “The Housemaid Is Watching.”
