In collaboration with the YWCA, this six-week series of discussions unpacks how racism reveals itself at the individual, organizational and systemic levels, and will equip you with tools to deconstruct racism within your sphere of influence. "Let's Talk" is a dialogue intended to create change. It begins with conversation but ends with action - and every part of the program is aligned to move you towards being educated, equipped and empowered as a change agent to eliminate racism in our community. Participants are expected to attend all six sessions. Register beginning April 1.

Fredricksen Library has teamed up with Penn State Master Gardeners to bring you a series of workshops that will show you how to garden with nature.  Penn State Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by Penn State Extension to provide research-based home gardening information to the public. You too can be an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practitioner. IPM began as a “new” idea for managing plant pests in production farming decades ago. That doesn’t mean that you can’t implement IPM strategies in your home garden or landscape. The presenters will discuss basic IPM components and use model pests to look at ways that you can manage your home garden ecosystems.

Cost per workshop is $5.00. More topics offered on the 4th Tuesday of each month (7/25, 8/22, 9/26 & 10/24). Registration for all programs is now open. To register contact: Penn State Extension, Cumberland County 717-240-6500 or 1-888-697-0371 x6500

*****THISPROGRAM IS CANCELED*****
 
Book clubs already involve getting together with friends, eating, and drinking, so why not make that the focus? The 1st Saturday of each month we cook recipes for one another and August is The Great Salad Challenge!  Salads don't have to be boring! Prove it by making and bringing a delicious salad that will delight the whole group. We'll vote on our favorite salads and the winning salad will go home with a prize! You don't have to be a serious, experienced cook; enthusiasm for cooking is more important, so consider giving this a try with us!  18 and older please. Registration for August starts July 1.  
 
After registering for this program, you will be individually contacted to ask which recipe(s) you would like to provide. 

This program is part of the Daytime Academy made possible by a grant from Harsco Corporation, honoring the memory of Derek C. Hathaway and his passion for life-long learning.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, we will be hosting TEDx Fredricksen Library -  a series of local viewings that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. We will watch TED Talks to spark deep discussion and connection. This month, in line with our Summer Program, Build a Better World, we will focus on making a difference: how we can better effect change in the world around us. After the videos, we will discuss what we saw and how it affected us.  We'll end with a little happiness boost from a favorite TED Talk. Could we leave this talk more inspired than ever? Let's find out. Registration recommended, not required - begins July 1.
