Anti-Bullying and Harassment Program for Parents

The program is geared toward parents of school-aged children and is presented in conjunction with "One Book, One Sterling, 2015.” This year’s selection is Wonder, by R. J. Palacio, a novel dealing with themes of being different, bullying, and the importance of building kindness and empathy in our communities.
The program will be held in the Baker Room of the Conant Public Library. Registration is required; please call 978-422-6409 to register.
Birds of the New England Swamp
Wildlife photographer Peter Christoph presents a narrated slideshow, sharing both his award-winning images and his photographic secrets as he brings you inside a typical New England swamp. On Wednesday May 6th at 3:30 pm and 6:30pm Peter provides an intimate look into the many varieties of birds that inhabit our swamps, including ospreys and herons, shorebirds, woodpeckers, and other cavity dwellers. Sloshing and crawling through the swamp so you don't have to, Peter captures the bird's many activities including building the nest, feeding their young, and catching their prey. You'll almost want to bring your own wading boots and bug spray for protection as you sit down to watch this captivating presentation.
Registration required. Call 978-422-6409 to register.
