Film Forum: 13th @ Silver Maples Retirement Community
May 22 @ 6:15 pm – May 22 @ 8:45 pm

Join us for a showing of 13th, a thought-provoking documentary that examines the inequalities associated with the United States’ prison boom. Directed by Ava Duvernay and named for the 13th amendment to the Constitution, the film connects slavery and historical discrimination such as Jim Crow laws to the present day mass incarceration of African Americans. The screening will be followed by an opportunity to discuss the film with fellow viewers. 

This screening of 13th is the first installment in our new program series, Film Forum. Once a quarter, the library will show noteworthy documentaries, movies, and other film adaptions to promote community dialogue around important present day and historical topics. All showings are free of charge.

Babytime 1 @ Chelsea District Library at McKune Room
May 23 @ 9:30 am – 10:15 am

Babytime has gotten so popular/crowded, we’re offering two of them this Tuesday! Because the library opens at 10am, please note that there will be no library services before the 9:30am Babytime; check out your books after! Also, plan to attend one, but not both sessions offered today.

Play an important and powerful role in shaping the early learning experiences of your child! Babytime is the perfect place to socialize and learn important skills with your baby or toddler. We’ll be singing songs, doing bouncy rhymes, learning some “baby signing” and reading along to fun board books in the first half of this program. In the second half, the toys come out! While the babies play (and learn to share!), caregivers have a chance to socialize and exchange information.In order for all children to participate and have a successful experience, please let us know if your child has any special needs that we can accommodate. Call Jessica at 734-475-8732, ext. 208.

Computer Training 1:1 @ Chelsea District Library at 2nd Floor Study Tables/Computer Area
May 23 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

We emphasize developing basic digital skills with not only laptops, but tablets and other mobile devices. Training is also available for library services like Overdrive eBooks, Zinio digital magazines, Consumer Reports and other databases and how to effectively use the Library’s new Enterprise online catalog. This program is aimed at educating users rather than computer repair.
Please register in advance through our online event calendar, calling or by visiting the library. Registration is very important so that our volunteers can prepare for your questions.
Lastly, if you cannot attend a session please call the library at 734-475-8732 x 503 and leave a message, we would appreciate it.
