SHREWSBURY – The Shrewsbury Public Library Foundation has announced several events in the near future. 

Are you interested in learning about artificial intelligence? The foundation will be hosting Fabricio Murai, an assistant professor of computer science and data science at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, for an event entitled “A Journey Into AI and Its Impact on Our Lives.” The presentation is part of the foundation’s distinguished lecture series. 

Patrons will be able to “learn about AI in a way that is both accessible and fascinating, ensuring that [they] leave with a newfound understanding of this transformative technology.”

The Shrewsbury Public Library Foundation has been sponsoring the distinguished lecture series at the library since 2021.

The foundation has also collaborated with the Library Speakers Consortium. The consortium hosts two-to-three online bestselling-author events per month, which are streamed to patrons of every member library. Patrons of the live events can participate in question-and-answer sessions where participants can ask questions directly to the author.

The events will cover wide ranges of genres, including historical fiction, contemporary fiction, poetry, business, history, art, culture, and more. The next event is scheduled for Jan. 23. Please visit the library’s website – at https://libraryc.org/shrewsburypubliclibrary/upcoming – for more information. 

“This provides a great opportunity for Shrewsbury Public Library patrons to enjoy author talks from the comfort of their homes,” Shrewsbury Public Library Director Priya Rathnam said in an email to the Community Advocate.
