Movie Night: E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
Friday, July 25, 2014
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Old Town Library, Community Room 1

Both a classic movie for kids and a remarkable portrait of childhood, E.T. is a sci-fi adventure that captures that strange moment in youth when the world is a place of mysterious possibilities, and the universe seems somehow separate from the one inhabited by grown-ups. One day, while looking for something in the back yard, Elliott senses something mysterious in the woods watching him. And he's right: an alien spacecraft on a scientific mission mistakenly left behind an aging botanist who isn't sure how to get home. Eventually Elliott puts his fears aside and makes contact with the "little squashy guy," perhaps the least threatening alien invader ever to hit a movie screen. Run time 121 min. This film is rated PG, for more information go to imdb.com.

History Comes Alive - Women in Science
Friday, July 25, 2014
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Harmony Library, Round

Well-Behaved Women: Women in Science Social, political and educational reformers in favor of opportunities for women faced enough opposition throughout history without considering that women would want to engage in scientific pursuits, scientific study being thought far beyond the capabilities of any woman. The brave women who persisted in crossing those boundaries opened the realm of scientific study to a whole new perspective, shedding new light on the study of the world around us. This program will draw on the lives and writings of Martha Maxwell, pioneer naturalist; Maria Mitchell, astronomer; Ruth Underhill, anthropologist; and Rachel Carson, biologist. Join us for a fascinating look at these pioneer scientists and the challenging world in which they followed their passion.
