Alice's Ordinary People
Documentary Film
Tuesday, October 4, 6:30 p.m.

The ordinary people in Craig Dudnick’s 2012 film were civil rights and voting activists who educated and mobilized thousands of people over several decades in Illinois, and, in Alice Tregay’s words, “made things happen.”  A major part of Ms. Tregay’s legacy is the organizing wizardry she shared with future generations.  All elections depend on voter turn-out.  Come get inspired by how Alice Tregay and her “ordinary people” made and continue to make things happen.  The screening will be followed by a Q & A with the filmmaker.

Let’s Get Moving! Using Playtime to Enhance Your Child’s Sensory Motor Development
with Jill Mays, pizza, and child care!
Wednesday, October 5, 5:00-6:30 p.m.

Jill Mays, an occupational therapist who has been practicing for over 25 years, will share why physical activity remains key to children’s development, especially as it relates to sensory processing and brain organization. Movement is essential not only for physical health and skill development but also emotional, social, cognitive, and language development.  Jill will weave in new research demonstrating the critical role of motor play in brain development.  Parents will learn strategies and fun activities that will help their children to: self-regulate, stay organized, and improve attention. Integrating simply motor play in daily routines will lead to better management of multi-sensory input and facilitates more flexible thinking.  Child care and pizza will be provided!  Please call the Library at 508-487-1125 to sign up.

Joseph Schuyler, Photography

For the past decade, the award-winning photographer trained his lens on his beloved Truro, and collected the images into a book, TRURO LIGHT: A Journey from Ocean to Bay, published last May by Charles Fields, and part of the Truro Library's collection. The images in this exhibit—luminous color landscapes and unexpected details in nature—are drawn from that book. TRURO LIGHT was Schuyler’s was final photographic project; he passed away last January.
