One-Hour PBS Documentaries with Discussions Moderated by Dr. Jim Haslip

In 2003, PBS aired a three-part series examining the nature of “race.” Over ten years later, our culture continues to be plagued by violence resulting from racial bias, while at the same time becoming more ethnically complex. On the first Tuesday of each month, after viewing a one-hour episode, Dr. Haslip will lead a discussion about the points each film covers. Informational handouts and online links will be made available to generate more thoughts on this important subject. No sign-ups; drop-ins welcome.

Dr. Haslip has 40 years of experience as a professional educator. He has taught or been principal in schools with a wide diversity of students: Native Americans in the Round Valley Reservation in Mendocino County, Tongan in San Mateo, African American in Buffalo, New York, and Hispanic in East Los Angeles. He has given workshops and lectures about race and ethnic diversity. He lives in St. Helena.

Lectures by Jay Greene
Sponsored by the St. Helena and Napa County Historical Societies

In the late eighteenth century, British colonists, living in a narrow strip of land along the Atlantic seaboard, fought for freedom from British rule. No one then could have imagined how huge the United States would soon become. In this eight-part series, Jay Greene will help us understand the pivotal events in our country’s history that made possible the settlement of the vast land spreading all the way to the Pacific. To appreciate the history of where we live today, we need to understand the political and social movements of the past.

Having graduated from college with honors in history, Jay Greene continues to research topics of historical interest, including the exciting history of how the United States grew from the East Coast all the way to the West Coast––in a relatively short period of time. He lives in St. Helena.

Bilingual Storytime / hora de cuentos bilingües

Children get to come to the library wearing their pajamas and bringing their favorite stuffed animal. They’ll listen to a story or music, or perhaps play a game—in both Spanish and English—so they can have sweet dreams when they go to bed!

Los niños podrán venir a la biblioteca en sus pijamas y con su peluche favorito. Ellos escucharán cuentos o música, o quizás participarán en juegos—en español y en inglés—¡para que puedan tener dulces sueños a la hora de irse a la cama!
