Teens who have been accepted as part of the summer drop-in volunteer program will meet to complete tasks to support the library's service to the community.
Join us for the screening of the award-winning documentary, No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson, followed by a discussion with director Steve James. This film was part of the Peabody Award winning ESPN series, "30 for 30."
This film explores a 1993 racially charged brawl in Hampton, Virginia, involving NBA star Allen Iverson, who was a high school basketball player at the time. The incident, and Iverson's subsequent trial and conviction, sharply divided the city along racial lines and marked a serious turning point in Iverson's life.

Do you want to practice your footwork, bang out beats, and show off your rhymes? We'll provide space, people who want to collaborate, and some equipment. All you need to bring is the noise.
Join French Conversation Hour to keep up your French language skills through open conversation with other French speakers. Whether you speak enough to hold a basic conversation or you can rattle off long stories, all are welcome. No class, no formal lesson--just practice for current French speakers.
Join film historian Doug Deuchler for a screening of Kiss Me, Kate, the 1953 MGM film adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same name. Inspired by Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, it tells the tale of musical theater actors, Fred Graham and Lilli Vanessi, who were once married and are now performing opposite of each other in the roles of Petruchio and Katherine in a Broadway-bound musical version of William Shakespeare's play.
All are welcome to join a group of avid readers who meet to discuss books while they knit and crochet blankets and scarves to donate to various charities. No knitting experience needed.
