EVENTS

Thursday, June 20

Chess Club 7:00 PM
Chess Club
Join us for chess on the third Thursday of every month. The group will meet from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. upstairs in the F.M. Kirby Gallery. We will enjoy friendly, non-competitive, short games of chess between players of all skill levels. Basic knowledge of the game's rules is required. Improve your game, make new friends and enjoy playing chess! Players of all ages are welcome to play as long as they know the rules. Please bring your own chess board, pieces, and time clock. Games will be between 20-30 minutes as agreed upon between players.

50 Years of Pride: Pride Month Film Series 2019: <em>The Happy Prince</em> 7:00 PM
50 Years of Pride: Pride Month Film Series 2019: The Happy Prince
The Library is pleased to announce our 3rd Annual “Pride Month Film Series” for 2019. Airing Thursday nights this June (June 6, 13, 20, and 27) at 7pm, these four films from the U.S. and overseas celebrate the spectrum and diversity of the LGBTQ+ experience and the 50th anniversary of the historic Stonewall Uprising.

Our third movie, on Thursday, June 20, will be The Happy Prince from the U.K. Written, directed by, and starring acclaimed actor and writer Rupert Everett, and filled with a veritable Who’s Who of British actors, such as Colin Firth, Emily Watson, and Tom Wilkinson, the movie movingly tells the largely untold story of the last days in the tragic times of Oscar Wilde, a person who observes his own failure with ironic distance and regards the difficulties that beset his life with detachment and humor. (U.K., 2018, 1:45, Rated R) Light refreshments will be served.

Learn something NEW! Our Library of Things is available for lending!
The Library staff are always looking for ways for our patrons to learn new things and a new collection can help with that: our ‘Library of Things’!

The Library of Things’ collection offers Morristown and Morris Township residents an opportunity to explore a new hobby or try something new before purchasing the equipment, or otherwise wouldn’t have the space to keep.

Want to try a sewing project, or check for buried treasure in and around town? Invite friends over for an outdoor film screening, or perhaps challenge your family to Frisbee golf in the back yard, or study the planets and constellations through a telescope? Now you can borrow the gear to do this and more!  Read more...
