Meet the Executive Producer of Netflix’s The Baby Sitters Club, Virtually!!!

The Stonington Public Library is excited to host Naia Cucukov in a zoom event on September 11th from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. Ms. Cucukov is the executive producer of the Netflix adaptation of The Babysitters Club.This event is perfect for kids that love the Babysitters Club books or those who grew up reading the iconic series.

Growing up in a small town in Southern New Jersey, Cucukov had little to do other than dive into movies and books. It’s a trait that propelled her to Hollywood, and to running development for film and television company, Walden Media.

Naia has overseen such movies as: The Giver, based on the bestselling book by Lois Lowry; Disney’s The BFG, a Steven Spielberg-directed adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved novel; and Wonder, based on the bestselling middle grade novel, as well as the recent adaptation of Ann M. Martin’s beloved series, The Baby-Sitters Club.  Listen to Naia read from Kristy’s Big Idea and find out how to break into the entertainment business, what an executive producer actually does and how it felt to bring The Baby-sitters Club to a new generation.

The Stonington Public Library has been working to keep books in the hands of our patrons since closing in March. We are thrilled to be opening our doors again on June 16th at 10:00 am! There will be some significant changes in place to protect myself and Gretchen, as well as our patrons. The Library hours will be changing for the summer, Tuesday and Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm for adults only and Saturdays 10:00 am to Noon for children and their accompanying adult. There is a 5 person limit in the library excluding families on Saturdays, to make distancing easier and a time limit so everyone gets a chance to come in and enjoy browsing for books. Unfortunately, we will not have public access computers or a public restroom but we will be able to take care of your printing needs. We also have expanded the WiFi coverage outside of the building. Just look for Stonintong Library Guest on your personal device. Please wear a mask in the library if you don’t have one we have disposable masks to offer you and hand sanitizer to share.
