    • The Library's Retro Summer Series commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, Apollo 11 moon landing, and Woodstock festival.

Billed as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music," the event would attract some of the greatest Rock musicians of the time and become known as the most famous rock concert and festival ever held. Travel back to three days that defined a generation by joining us for a screening of the American Experience documentary, Woodstock. This event is free to attend and open to the public. Seating is limited.

  1. Author Robert Atkinson
    • Start time: 06:30pm
    • End date: Wednesday, August 28th
    • End time: 08:00pm
    • The Library's Retro Summer Series commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, Apollo 11 moon landing, and Woodstock festival. Robert Atkinson - author, developmental psychologist, and retired professor - will share his memoir, Year of Living Deeply: A Memoir of 1969. Full of soulfulness, grace, and insights, Robert's story gently carries the reader into a magical realm of timelessness: from sailing on the Clearwater, to attending Woodstock, to living in a cabin in the woods, to meeting Joseph Campbell, who, with Pete Seeger, becomes a guide and mentor, to visiting Arlo Guthrie at his farm in the Berkshires with Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, to living as a guest in a Franciscan monastery - all of which help to reveal the patterns connecting all things. Join us for a glimpse into the year of 1969 from someone who truly lived it deeply. This event is free to attend and open to the public. Seating is limited.
