Teen Movie: Ready Player One

January 30 at 4pm, we’re showing Ready Player One

Synopsis: In the year 2045, the real world is a harsh place. The only time Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) truly feels alive is when he escapes to the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where most of humanity spends their days. In the OASIS, you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone—the only limits are your own imagination. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance), who left his immense fortune and total control of the Oasis to the winner of a three-part contest he designed to find a worthy heir. When Wade conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends—called the High Five—are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS.

Cookbook Book Club

Currently looking for participants!

Third Saturday, monthly

A cook book club is a cross between a book club and a potluck. Each month we will will choose a book, and on the day of the meeting everybody will come to the library and bring one of the recipes from the book to share with the club. We’ll meet and eat and chat about the book and whatever else happens to come up.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE…

  1. Sign up: call the library or email katherine@scituatelibrary.org with your name and phone number. Currently, we are limiting it to 12 members.
  2. Get the book: You can place your own hold, or we will order the book for you—you’ll get an email, call, or text when it arrives, just like any other library book.
  3. Pick a recipe: Go through the book and find some recipes you would like to make!
  4. Tell us what you picked: Call us (or email Katherine) to tell her what recipe you choose. You can take as long as you want to decide, up to the day before the meeting, but once someone chooses a recipe, no one else is allowed to make it and you’ll have to pick again.
  5. Come to club and share your recipe! Talk about what you loved or hated about it, and sample everyone else’s creations.

UPCOMING TITLES…

  • January 19: Soup and bread pairings (from any book)
  • February 16: Any book by Ina Garten
  • March 16: Lidia’s Mastering the Art of Italian Cuisine

Do you have a collection?

If you have a cool collection that you’d like to share with everyone, we can display it at the library. Whatever you collect—rubber ducks, action figures, tea cups—show it off in our big display case in the children’s room.

Talk to Miss Alyce to sign up.

Bone Builders of RI

bone builders

Meets weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays at 1:30pm, and Saturdays at 10:30am

Bone Builders is an innovative exercise program based on collaborative work of international bestselling author Dr. Miriam Nelson and Tufts University, whose research has shown that moderate free-weight training preformed at least twice a week for six months can improve strength and balance, and increase energy levels, while significantly increasing bone density. This class meets three times a week in the North Scituate Public Library Meeting Room.
