Joan Judson presents "Country Art"
The month of August
Woodbury Library Gallery

Joan Judson
Joan Judson, a lifelong resident of Woodbury, will be displaying "Country Art" in the Woodbury Library's Gallery Space during the month of August.  In the past years she has displayed her artwork in many local venues and has won several awards.  Joan works in oil, acrylic, water color, coffee, and pencil.  Art has been her passion since youth but her talent was set aside for many years as time limits of a busy life got in the way. 
Her artwork will be on display during normal open hours at the library.  For more information on  Judson's show, please contact the library at 203-263-3502.
Gladius Flamenco Guitar
Thursday, August 1 at 2:00 PM
Woodbury Library

In an era when expertise and originality are often overlooked in lieu of fleeting flash and flare, Gladius defines innovation as a composer and mastery as an instrumentalist-perpetually pushing the boundaries of his Baroque-Ethnic-Metal fusion: on both the classical and electric guitar.  Gladius uses the influences of flamenco, Spanish and classical music to compose his own compositions. Registration is required.
Please register as there are limited spaces available. 203-263-3502 or by visiting the Library's website

"Cut the Cord" with Reference Technology Librarian, Ron Fairchild
Thursday, August 15 at 7:00 PM
Woodbury Library
This is an exciting time for "cord cutting" - dropping cable or satellite TV service in favor of online video sources. Options are expanding, with companies implementing online services and features.  Additionally, internet only channels like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime are increasingly incorporating their own original content in addition to content from the traditional companies for viewing.  Join Woodbury Library's Reference and Technology Librarian Ron Fairchild for an informative talk on streaming services at the Woodbury Public Library on Thursday, August 15 at 7:00pm.  Discussion will include what is needed to get started with "cutting the cord," including hardware and software equipment required, internet speeds and types, pricing, and more.
