The Great War’s Legacy

With the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War coming later this year, the John Jermain Memorial Library will present “Legacies of World War I” on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. The program will examine America’s role in the war and its aftermath, and the conflict’s subsequent effect on geopolitical boundaries and the nature of war itself. Registration is required.

An advocate from the Suffolk County Office for the Aging will be at the library on Tuesday from 1 to 3 p.m. to answer questions on a one-to-one basis about programs available to senior citizens. Sign-up is first come first served. 

Medicare counseling will be available on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Half-hour appointments can be made to speak individually with a representative from the county’s Health Insurance Information Counseling and Assistance Program by calling the library.

The library’s weekly Wednesday at 1 p.m. film program will screen “Loving Vincent,” a hand-painted animated biographical drama about the life of Van Gogh and the circumstances of his death. Each of the film’s 65,000 frames was an oil painting on canvas, a feat accomplished by 125 artists from more than 20 countries.

Parents for Megan’s Law and the Crime Victims Center are offering a crime prevention education workshop for parents, 12th graders, and the general public next Thursday at 7 p.m. at John Jermain. The workshop will focus on how to keep children, teenagers, and adults safe from sexual abuse and assault. Registration is required.
