"The Freshman" With Pianist Jesse Beller: 7:30 p.m. The 1925 classic silent film starring Harold Lloyd tells of a starry-eyed freshman in college, whose romantic notions of university life make him the target of upper-classman jokes. This is a summer tradition at the Croton Free Library, and will be accompanied by the original music of Jesse Beller. Join others at the Croton Free Library, 171 Cleveland Drive, Croton-on-Hudson.
