Little Listeners YouTube Release
Thursday, September 24, 2020 – 10:30 AM to 11:00 AM
For our youngest patrons, we are providing weekly YouTube videos featuring some of our favorite rhymes, songs, and occasional books. As this age group benefits from keeping interactions with media brief, we keep the videos short (but definitely sweet!) and engaging. Since they can be accessed whenever it's convenient for you, there's no need to worry about scheduling your little one to be available at a certain time.
'Little Listeners Take-Home Bags' are available in the library vestibule. These contain a 'twinkle star' and other assorted materials which can be used to enhance the experience for your little one.
New weekly videos available every Thursday morning. For children ages newborn to 3 yrs. and their caregivers.*(No video release on November 26)

A Room of One's Own: How Women in the Arts Have Shaped Our Collective Sense of Self
Wednesday, September 23, 2020 – 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
As society evolves in every culture, change is reflected in the ongoing way artists and writers express themselves. Women have shaped that change in powerful ways over the centuries, and what is created now is the latest chapter in a long history of social witness. This program will explore this evolution, looking at how women with creative talent made their mark in the world before the 19th Amendment passed in 1920. These are the women writers, painters, photographers, journalists, musicians and others who built on the work and courage of the women who came before them.
After many years of teaching classical languages, philosophy, and the history of ideas at Souhegan High School, presenter Nancy Baker now spends her time volunteering. She is immediate past Executive Chair of the Guild of Volunteers at the Currier Museum of Art and is an active docent there. Nancy gives talks on art, language and the history of ideas at the Currier, libraries, senior living enrichment programs, and community groups in the greater Manchester area. She is Chairman of the Amherst Library Board of Trustees and is an enthusiastic supporter of the role of the free library in communities.
