Parent's Book Discussion – Screenwise

Kilton Conference Room

This is a book discussion session for parents who are concerned about their children's use of technology. We will discuss "Screenwise : helping kids thrive (and survive) in their digital world" by Devorah Heitner, PhD. Technology can seem overwhelming to parents, who often have little idea what is important to their kids online or how best to mentor them as they engage with the digital world. Today's kids are growing up with this technology, and it will continue to shape their daily lives as they grow. There is great value in developing good habits around online behavior.

Rasberry Pi - Weather Station

This event is ideal if you have a Raspberry Pi and are not sure what to do with it, or are seeking inspiration for new ideas. Or if you've made a project and are looking for an audience to share it with, then this is the perfect place for you too! Raspberry Pi enthusiasts will be showing off their latest projects for you to try, and sharing tips and tricks for others to learn for future events! We will be meeting at the Kilton Library.

Strange: Where and How People Live    The Underground Girls of Kabul: in search of a hidden resistance in Afghanistan Jenny Nordberg.

In Afghanistan, where gender roles are rigidly prescribed, it is not uncommon for a girl to pass her childhood as a boy, in order to provide a son for a family without a male heir. The role of women in this society is the focus of Western attention and phlianthropy and the results are far from clear.
