Calendar of Events

At the Joslin Library we work hard to offer a variety of programs and events to entertain, teach, and most importantly, provide opportunities to gather as a community.  Have an idea for a great program?  Looking for more information regarding our current offerings? Please contact our Librarian, Joy Worland, at

All programs are at the Joslin Library unless otherwise indicated.  


Join us every Sunday for a lively and fun card game. Magic is a trading card game (TCG) where you build your collection of cards by trading with your friends, assembling decks of cards, and battling against an opponent and their deck. You cast powerful spells and summon monstrous creatures aiming to knock your opponent down from 20 life to zero. The game is constantly changing as new cards are released throughout the year. As you get new cards, whether from these new sets or through trading with your friends, you can continuously update your decks and discover a whole new game!

CYW 8.5 cover softened“Change Your Weather Workshop” Wednesday, June 7th, 4-5:30 pm

Join local author, father, and coach Lou Bevacqui as he introduces his new book and ideas that will be explored more fully in free weekly workshops in July.

How can children identify and use the information that their emotions provide when making decisions, instead of emotions consuming all their energy and mental resources allowing those emotions to make their decisions (and reactions) for them? How can they build their self-awareness and develop internal tools that make it possible for them to choose the way they want to feel?

July workshops will focus on one emotion per session, and feature interactive art activities, outdoor activities, discussion, and exploration of the senses, with take-home tools and artwork. Dates are Mondays, July 10, 17, 24, and 31, 3:30-5. All are free and at the Joslin Library.
