The Spring 2013 Program Schedule is ready! Highlights include:
Attracting Birds Close to Home
In this slide-illustrated program, Denise Hackert-Stoner and Scott Stoner cover the basics of attracting birds with food, water, and shelter. They cover types of feeders and feed, plantings and cover for birds, and common questions such as squirrels and hawks. Photographs show many of the common and less common backyard visitors to the northeast. Enjoy the show, and bring your questions!
Free, no registration required.
- Lecture/Discussion for adults
Join retired philosophy professor Roberta Boss at the Town of Ballston Community Library for informal conversations about philosophy in our every day lives. Prerequisite: a curious mind.
The sessions will focus on everyday questions that we face now, and “picking the brains” of ancient philosophers (and some classic novelists) to see what they might have said if they lived today.
We’ll meet from 12:30-2:30pm on Fridays, May 24 & 31, June 6 & 20 in the library community room. Please register at the library or by calling 399-8174, ext 2. Week One: May 24 – The Pursuit of Happiness
Week Two: May 31 – Big Government
Week Three: June 6 – Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous
Week Four: June 20 – Body & Soul
