Upcoming Programs at Wyomissing Public Library

On Monday, Jan. 22 at 6 p.m., the Wyomissing Public Library will welcome Wynton S. Butler, Director of Social Services for the Reading School District, to present a program about Dr. Martin Luther King and the Politics of Non-Violence. Mr. Butler will discuss how Dr. King came to embrace the philosophy and practice of non-violence and how he used it as a critical tool in the struggle for civil rights.

On Wednesday, Jan. 24 at 6 p.m., Albright College Professor Dave Kaul will talk about Artificial Intelligence (AI) – what is it, how does it work, and do we really need it? Professor Kaul, who is Assistant Professor of Art and Computer Science/Game Development at Albright, will demonstrate how AI works and answer questions about its uses.

The library will round out the week on Saturday, Jan. 27 at 1 p.m. with a free screening of “Oppenheimer,” the Golden Globe award-winning film about J. Robert Oppenheimer and the development of the atomic bomb. The film is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin, American Prometheus: The Triumph And Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer. The book is available at the library.
