Term begins at 5:30 PM on 31 July 2018.  You will be given the necessary equipment at that time and sorted into your house. Bring your best robes and witches hats. Wands will be provided. Class size is limited so we await your owl by no later than Friday, 27 July.

Direct your replies to 781.324.0218.

These are advanced classes so we will only accept witches and wizards who are 18 and older.

Art Reception July 9th for Grace Julian Murthy

Join us Monday, July 9 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. for a Reception of our Rotating Art July Artist Grace Julian Murthy! Her art is a journey of happiness that uses a visual language of humor, nostalgia, color, shape and everyday objects to illustrate that you can find joy in the simple things in life. She engages the viewer by using contrasting colors and juxtaposing the pop art style on wood. She welcomes the viewer on this joyous retro and fun journey. She believes that art exists all around us and all it takes to be appreciated is a closer look.

Murthy’s art will be on exhibit at the Library through the month of July.
