Film & Discussion – Limited Partnership


 Thursday, May 21 at 7:00 PM

Limited Partnership is the love story between Filipino-American Richard Adams and his Australian husband, Tony Sullivan. In 1975, thanks to a courageous county clerk in Boulder, CO, Richard and Tony were one of the first same-sex couples to be legally married in the United States. Richard immediately filed for a green card for Tony based on their marriage. But unlike most heterosexual married couples who easily file petitions and obtain green cards, Richard received a denial letter from the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) stating, “You have failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots.” Outraged at the tone, tenor and politics of this letter and to prevent Tony’s impending deportation, the couple sued the U.S. government. This became the first federal lawsuit seeking equal treatment for a same-sex marriage in U.S. history.

Join us for this important film and discussion to follow.  Refreshments will be served.

Seedling and Plant Exchange


Second Annual SML Plant Swap

Saturday May 23, 10am-2pm

Did you start a few too many veggie or flower seeds?

Have divisions of perennials you want a home for? Have a few extra cuttings you don’t want to compost?

Bring them to the side porch of the Library, preferably before 10 a.m., on Sat. 5/23 and share them with your neighbors. Please label what you bring!

Are you looking to add a tomato, herb or flower to your garden? Stop by and help yourself. It’s self-serve, although a gardener may be around to encourage and advise.

Although we call this a swap, YOU DON’T NEED TO BRING A PLANT TO TAKE A PLANT.

And don’t forget to bring your extra seeds in to the Seed Exchange. You can drop them off at the desk.

Questions? Call Joan-Claire 733-0237
