~ Presents: Stranger Things Season I ~
October 26th at 5:30pm
We’ll catch up on Season 1 before the Netflix premier of Season 2 [on October 27th].
Presented by: Higganum resident, Philip R. Devlin [English, History & Latin teacher at Haddam-Killingworth High School for 30 years]; son of a career military officer. He has given numerous presentations to historical societies, schools and civic organizations throughout CT. April 6, 2017, marked the 100th anniversary of the US involvement in WWI. It is hard to imagine a 20th century historical event whose long-term consequences for Western civilization have been as profound as World War I, [ironically “the war to end all wars”]. Focus is: the long-term consequences, CT’s involvement in the war and the role of soldiers from Haddam & Killingworth.

A Special Thank you to the Haddam Garden Club!
The Haddam Garden Club created and maintains beautiful flower and butterfly gardens at the Library. With the Club’s expertise and hard-work, they have made the Library’s open space extremely attractive and inviting for public use.
Recently the Haddam Garden Club donated an oak tree. The tree will surely grow into a Library landmark providing shade for story hours, programs, or anyone who wants to enjoy a good book under its shade. BML is grateful for the generosity of the Garden Club.
Please take some time to stroll around the library to appreciate their efforts on your next visit.
We had a wonderful time at BML’s 2nd Annual Agricultural Day! For more photos & event coverage – Visit our Facebook page.
