ZELIENOPLE — The Zelienople Area Public Library will host several events in September.
Zelienople Library Presents, the library's arts and culture speaker series, continues at 7 p.m. Thursday with Michael Corb, senior vice president of the architecture firm CannonDesign. The company has been commissioned to design the new Seneca Valley School District elementary school.
Corb will discuss this project and other regional, national and international architectural works.
Tickets for the event are $8 for adults, $3 for children under 14, with 5 free tickets available for Seneca Valley students. Tickets are available at the library or on eventbrite.com.
Book the Casino Night, an annual fundraiser for the library with a new twist, will be held at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 21.
The evening will include a silent auction of restaurant passes, weekend getaways, art, jewelry and more.
Ticket price includes food and drink and are available at www.zelienoplelibrary.org or at the library. Tickets are $35 per person.
“Transformation” will be the topic of the library's Pushing the Limits Fall Book Discussion from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sept. 28.
Pushing the Limits is a reading, viewing and discussion series about real people and real science.
Each session involves a discussion around a theme, human interest videos and special guests. It is not necessary to attend each of the four sessions.
September's book choice is “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind” by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer, and the library has extra copies of the book available.
This session's facilitator will be Chatham University Professor Chris Murakami. The series will continue in October with a session on the theme “Motion” and in November with the theme “Heritage.”
Interested adults and teens may obtain a copy of the upcoming books or DVD versions at the library.
