Concert: The Softer Side of Celtic

Jeff Snow 1

WEDNESDAY, June 12 at 1:30 PM

Celtic Culture is woven deeply throughout the fabric of America and especially so in New England. The Softer Side of Celtic combines the music, stories, and a wee bit of history from Scotland, Ireland, and England into a program that will keep you on the edge of your seats. There will be singing, laughing, clapping, and perhaps a bit of foot stomping. Generously sponsored by the Library Trustees.

Queer Film Club


THURSDAY, June 13 at 6:30 PM

This club is for all the film nerds out there looking to meet others in the LGBTQ+ community, make friends, and explore queer cinema. We meet every second Thursday of the month at 6:30 PM at Hops N Scotch, 1306 Beacon St., to discuss our movie of the month and hang out. Similar to a book club, DVD copies of the films are held at the Circulation Desk at the Brookline Village Library for you to pick up and watch on your own time. This month's film is BPM (Beats Per Minute).
