Do you remember the summer of 2014 in New England? Come experience a documentary about a historic corporate drama that unfolded in our own backyard, "Food Fight: Inside the Battle for Market Basket."
Throughout the summer of 2014, a corporate food fight played out in dozens of communities impacting tens of thousands of workers and the economies of three states. When the faction of the Market Basket board headed by Arthur S. Demoulas fired his cousin and arch-rival Arthur T. Demoulas as long-time CEO of the successful supermarket chain, it set off a firestorm that sparked one of most unique corporate dramas in American history. It’s what the New York Times called “the last stand for the middle class.” "Food Fight" is the story of the battle to save Market Basket, and about the power of ordinary, passionate people to rewrite corporate history. You can watch a trailer of this award-winning documentary on the film's website.
To sign up to see this documentary, which runs 1 hour 45 minutes, please fill out the form below, call 781-769-0200 x110, or visit the Reference or Information Desk.

Have you ever wanted to learn to knit, but don’t have the tools and aren’t sure who to ask? This program is for you! Several librarians, who happen to be veteran knitters, will lead a workshop about how to knit, from casting on to binding off. The class will work together on the same project, and all materials will be provided in a kit for $5.00. After you’ve taken the Learn to Knit Class you’ll be able to join us later in the month for Stitch Therapy to continue working on your project.
