The library is looking offload the Kidder branch building on the west side of town, and the school system needs to find space for its expanding student population. Both issues are going to be up for discussion at the upcoming Special Town Meeting, and are also the topics of the day on “My Town Matters,” as Library Trustee Kristine Hodlin and School Committee Chair Kevin Donahue sit down to discuss their space needs with host Frank Schroth. Tune in to the Public channel (Comcast 9/RCN 13) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings at 7:30 p.m. to check out this conversation.
Members of Elders Climate Action were recently at Fuller Village to deliver a talk titled “What Can One Person Do about Climate Change?” This session engaged viewers on the wide-ranging topic of climate change, including causes, possible solutions and ways to get involved and make an impact. Targeted specifically at the senior population, information was shared about specific roles that our most mature citizens can take and advantages they may have over other age groups. Sit in for this lecture when it airs during the Monday Forum at 5 p.m. on the Public channel.
In celebration of the Chinese New Year, the Milton Public Library recently hosted “Armchair Travel to China,” a presentation featuring Chinese calligraphy, costumes, dance, song, instruments and a traditional tea ceremony. Both entertaining and informational, this session packed in lots of education about traditional Chinese culture. It’s currently airing during the Monday Forum at 8 p.m. on the Public channel.
