Endicott’s first public library opened March 15, 1915 with the support of its namesake George F. Johnson. With its 100th birthday fast approaching, it’s time for a walk down memory lane. Did you know that Endicott had one of the first bookmobiles in the northeast? Or that there was once a branch library on the north side? Celebrate the library’s centennial with this these two special programs, with refreshments courtesy of the Friends of the George F. Johnson Memorial Library. The Tim Main program is free, but tickets are required. Tickets are available at the library Information Desk while supplies last.
Special October Program: Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 7 PM in the library’s Scott Meeting Room: Noted author, underwater archaeologist and Endicott native Joseph Zarzynski will present a program titled “Assault on the Maritime Zone: Rod Serling’s Movie Screenplay of a Jack Finney Novel.” A 1969 graduate of Union-Endicott High School, Mr. Zarzynski is a maritime historian and underwater archaeologist, and was a student of Binghamton native Rod Serling. In 1966 Paramount Pictures released the movie “Assault on a Queen.” Rod Serling wrote the screenplay for the movie. The Hollywood film has been described as an “Ocean’s Eleven-style caper,” but with a maritime theme. The lecture will examine the high-seas drama from a serial publication, to novel, and then to a star-studded Hollywood movie. The lecture will put the screenplay and movie into a broader perspective, discuss Rod Serling’s occasional voyages into “The Maritime Zone,” and cover his writings and narration of oceanic-related productions. Free to all, capacity 90.
