Summer Reading Programs and Events

Join our MOOC!

The Rise of Superheroes and Their Impact on Pop Culture
:  Join us at the Library as we take part in a 5 session Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) presented by the Smithsonian and edX. Participants will watch this online course together on our big screen over a 5 week period and then have a discussion after each lecture led by Teen Services Librarian Geri Diorio.  This program is suitable for teens and adults. The dates for the Library sessions are Thursday, June 25, July 2, 9, 16 and 23 at 7 PM.

edX Course description: "Join the Smithsonian, and comic book industry legend Stan Lee, to explore the history of the comic book and the rise of superheroes. The ancient gods of Egyptian, Greek and Roman myths still exist, but today, they have superpowers, human foibles and secret identities. They come from comic books and graphic novels, and have taken over pop culture on the stage, screen, video games, and animation. From Superman® and Spider-Man®, to The Avengers® and The Hulk® and beyond, who are these heroes? And, how have they evolved from folklore and myth, across all cultures and religions?"

Please register hereYou will also need to register on the edX site (please note that the edX course begins in May but we won't begin viewing the MOOC together at the Library until June 25).
