Read to a Dog

Children are invited to read to a Certified Therapy Dog. One of the favorite things for the dog to do is listen to children read lots of stories. Reading to a dog or other pet can help new and reluctant readers gain confidence, increase important reading skills, and develop a love of reading.

Find out more about Read to a Dog.

Loft Cinema Presents the Human Rights Watch Film Festival

Part of The Human Rights Watch Film Festival, featuring free screenings of provocative new features and documentaries paired with post-film discussions.

Habibi

Young lovers Qays and Layla are university students in the West Bank who hail from Khan Yunis in Gaza. They are forced to return home before com­pleting their courses. In the more religious and traditional environment of Khan Yunis, their love story can continue only by marrying. Yet Qays, who is a construction worker living in a refugee camp, is too poor to con­vince Layla's father that he can provide for his beloved daughter. As the couple struggles to be together, Qays paints verses from the classical poem Majnun Layla all over Khan Yunis, a rebellious act that angers Layla's father and the local self-appointed moral police. Lyrical and passionate, Habibi depicts a reality where personal happiness must be weighed against society's opinions, and a choice sometimes made between one's people and one's heart.

Community Meeting. This is not a library-sponsored event and is subject to change without notice.
