What was Brookline like in the late 19th and early 20th centuries? What schools and churches were in the town? Were any industries based in Brookline? Using Atlascope, the Leventhal Map & Education Center’s user-friendly portal for exploring urban atlases, we’ll dive into the historical geography of Brookline. Come learn about how the community has changed over time, and discover how to research the history of your own home and neighborhood.

Live Animal Encounter – Summer Reading Kickoff (Virtual)

MONDAY, June 28 at 3 PM

This year's Summer Reading theme is Tails and Tales - and we're celebrating with a virtual encounter with a sea lion or fur seal from the New England Aquarium!

Join the marine mammal trainers from the New England Aquarium for a training session with a California sea lion or northern fur seal. Learn about how they train, why they train, and what you can do to protect the ocean environment for these amazing creatures. You’ll have a chance to see the animals up close (over Zoom) and to ask the trainers your questions.

This program is for adults and kids of all ages to celebrate the start of Summer Reading. Stay tuned for more information about the Summer Reading Program next week.

Registration is required. Sign up for the live animal encounter here!

This event is generously sponsored by the Library Trustees.
