Join us at the SNA Education Forum

DATE: Thursday, November 19th

TIME: 7:00-8:45 p.m.

LOCATION: Rochambeau Library, Community Room

The newly-formed Education Committee of the Summit Neighborhood Association will host an education forum in the Community Room of the Rochambeau Library.

The purpose of this meeting is to gather our neighbors’ views on public education in Providence–what it is, what it is not, and what you want it to be.

The specific topics are up to you! Please come share your success stories, your concerns, and your dreams so we can advocate for the schools our neighborhood wants.

Rochambeau Library summer programs

The symbol of the story project.

Our superhero-themed Summer Reading program kicks off Tuesday June 30 at 2PM with face painting and a visit from a mad scientist! Kids can sign up to win prizes and be heroes by reading to raise money for our sister library, the Kitengesa Community Library in Uganda.

Some special appearances:
Wednesdays, July 8 and July 22,11:15AM: We’ll be at Billy Taylor Park for Storytelling under the Trees.
Tuesday, July 7, 3:30PM:
Farm Fresh RI, Fruit and Veggie Avengers!
Tuesday, July 21, 3:30PM: Draw comics with Eric Fulford. 
Wednesday, July 29, 3:30PM:
Animal World Experiences, meet animals with special abilities. 
Thursday, July 30, 6PM: RI Computer Museum, make music with Rasberry Pi.

Secondly, we were selected as one of 10 libraries nationwide to collect oral histories for StoryCorps, to be archived at the Library of Congress and possibly featured on NPR.
Is there a loved one you would like to interview? Do you have a story to tell? We will be booking 40 minute recording sessions for people at Rochambeau in September. Please join us to learn more about the project at a special listening session on Thursday, August 6 at 7PM, otherwise contact me with your questions and referrals.

thank you,
