What is a Flea Circus? It is an entire big top circus in miniature. Up first is Fifi, who performs on the high wire and trapeze! Then there is Bruno, the world’s strongest flea who turns over a coin in a child’s hand! Last but not least is Fernando, who does the high dive into a pool of water and gets shot out of a cannon and into a volunteer’s hands!! The audience will be thrilled and amazed at these and other incredible demonstrations starring Ed’s trained fleas. Sponsored by the Library Foundation of Needham.

Bernadette has a great life. At least, that's what it seems like. She's got a loving husband and a brilliant daughter. Something about it isn't satisfying to her, though. Despite it all, she finds herself longing for the creative passions of her younger years, when she was an acclaimed architect. In a sudden, life-changing decision, she disappears from home and begins work on an architectural project in Antarctica. The project is rife with difficulties: long nights and busy days, but as a mother, she's up for the challenge.Sponsored by the Needham Free Public Library.
