The Arms Library Association Presents...

The Arms Library Association has a treat for anyone who loves history, PBS, the Roosevelt Family or Ken Burns. Mr. Burns will be on stage in Shelburne Falls on February 12th to preview his upcoming documentary The Roosevelts: An Intimate History.
This is a fundraising event to raise $750,000 plus for the first phase of a multi-year project to restore the historic Pratt Memorial Library Building home of the Arms Library.

Mr. Burns’s new seven-part, 14-hour documentary about the Roosevelts will air September 2014 on PBS. The film tells the stories of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor, three members of one of the most prominent and influential families in American politics. The series marks the first time their individual stories have been woven into a single narrative.

Mr. Burns will show clips from the documentary and reveal what went into the making of it and others of his famed productions.
There will be a Q&A following the preview.

Tickets for the screening, which starts at 7:00 PM, are $25 each for seating at Memorial Hall in Shelburne Falls. The Arms Library Association will also host a reception at 6:00 PM for Mr. Burns prior to the event. Tickets are $100 each for this special opportunity to meet Mr. Burns and learn about the library restoration, and may be purchased only at the Library.

Tickets for the screening can be purchased at a variety of outlets. Contact the Arms Library Association at or call 413-625-0306 to reserve tickets. You can also purchase tickets at the Library, Mocha Maya’s Café, Boswell’s Books and People's United Bank in Shelburne Falls, as well as World Eye Bookshop in Greenfield, Hardware & Supply and Elmer’s Store in Ashfield, Broadside Bookshop in Northampton, and in Amherst at the Amherst Books.
