Description to come
The White Mountains have attracted tourists and artists since the early 1800's. Take an arm-chair tour of the notches of the White Mountains through 19th century paintings, photographs, and postcards. This presentation will include the Legend of Chocorua and the true story behind the Willey Side. Take an hour to come explore the historic relationship between people and nature through the paintings, literature, and poetry in White Mountain tradition.
Harvest scenes are a very common theme in Art. This presentation will include works of art by Winslow Homer, Albert Bierstadt, Benjamin Champney and others. This presentation will explore paintings, prints, sketches, and photographs to survey historic tools and techniques used to harvest apples, corn, hay, and grains. Traditional harvest time activities and celebrations such as husking bees, pumpkin carving, and hay rides will also be explored.
In October we will feature a new book gathering, who's focus will be books with settings in libraries. The group will kick start reading "Sorcery of Thorns.", a Fantasy Young Adult (YA) book by Margaret Rogerson. This book is available via our Interlibrary Loan (ILL), or you may purchase your own copy at
In honor of Remembrance Week, this Saturday morning, a local author will be giving a presentation of the surrounding New England War Monuments and Landmarks. There will be some personal and historical stories surrounding some of the monuments.
