What makes that spooky, eerie sound in the background of horror and science fiction movies? Most likely, it is an instrument called a Theremin. The Theremin is played without even touching it! Its strange sound is caused by radio waves. It has a straight vertical rod that controls the pitch and a horizontal loop that controls volume. The pitch and volume are controlled by moving the hands closer to or farther from the antennas. Come listen to music on this strange instrument played by professional musician, Christopher Payne.

In the early 1800s, issues such asEngland’s impressment of American seamen, trade embargoes, and restrictions on commerce would contribute to increased friction between the two nations. When war was declared on June 18, 1812, the American Navy was composed of 6 frigates and 16 lesser fighting ships, England’s Navy had over 600 ships. The English were at war with France and viewed this American declaration as a “sideshow” or a drain on their resources. Their level
of respect for America’s small Navy was to grow significantly after they lost all three engagements with the USS Constitution. Her Captains—Hull, Bainbridge, and Stewart—would prove to be worthy adversaries against their English foes. As the war progressed, the advantage in numbers would shift the tide in favor of England. Finally, at the war’s end, both sides would feel they were
victorious. Bob Begin has presented several historical talks at the Library. This event is sponsored by the Library Foundation of Needham.

When one of the Secret Service’s dogs has to go on maternity leave, Max, a dog who served with the Marines in Afghanistan, is brought in to help. The dog forms a bond with TJ, the young son of the President of the United States, who has trouble fitting into his new surroundings. This concerns the Secret Service, who believe this will hinder Max’s ability to perform his duties. But when an emergency develops at the White House, Max could be TJ’s and the President’s only hope.
