ZOOM Family Storytime

Tuesdays, Jan. 5 thru Feb. 16     10:00 AM to 10:45 AM

Virtual programming

Ages 3 and up, younger siblings welcome.

Our family storytimes are for the entire family to enjoy. We begin every session with a welcoming routine. We follow that with a simple story targeted primarily to the younger siblings in the group (but still plenty of fun for the older ones!).

After that, we'll move on to stories that require a little more focus. If your youngest children are getting 'antsy' at that point, you are welcome to bring them out to play in another room (or simply check that the 'mute' button is on)---making sure to come back to join us for the concluding routines and craft at the end of each program.

Make sure to include your email address in the registration. Check your inbox on the morning of the program for your Zoom invitation! (the same invitation link will work for all 6 meetings in this session)

ZOOM A Libertarian Walks into a Bear

Tuesday, February 23, 2021     7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Virtual programming

Once upon a time, a group of libertarians got together and hatched one of the most ambitious social experiments in modern American history—the Free Town Project: a plan to take over an American town and completely eliminate its government. In 2004, they set their sights on Grafton, NH, a flyspeck town with only one paved road,  buried in the woods of New Hampshire’s western fringe. When freedom-focused libertarians across the US—from as far as California to as near as Massachusetts—descended on Grafton, state and federal laws became meek suggestions.   Soon the wilderness-thick   town lost public funding for pretty much everything: fire dept, the schoolhouse, library, and perhaps most importantly wildlife services. As the people were ignoring laws and regulations on hunting and food disposal, their newly formed off-the-grid tent city caught the attention of some unruly neighbors: the bears.   Join journalist/author Matthew Hongoltz-Hetling as he shares his path to uncovering the truth behind this fantastical tale of bear vs. libertarian.

ZOOM Tales of the 10th:The Mountain Troops and American Skiing

Wednesday, March 3, 2021     7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Virtual programming

On November 15, 1941, the first unit of what would become the 10th Mountain Division was activated. The 10th Mountain was a unique American military unit that recruited and trained skiers and mountaineers to operate in mountain and winter warfare. Two winters of training in the high mountains of Colorado tested the stamina of its soldiers, and prepared them for combat in the Apennine Mountains of Italy. There, the 10th compiled a distinguished war record despite heavy casualties. After the war, many veterans of the cohesive unit guided and enhanced the growth of American skiing and outdoor recreation: Vail and A-Basin in Colorado, Crystal Mountain, Washington, Mount Bachelor, Oregon, Nike, the Sierra Club, and the National Outdoor Leadership School all were founded or influenced by veterans of the mountain troops.Presenter Jeff Leich has been Executive Director of the New England Ski Museum in Franconia, NH since 1997. Leich is the editor of the Journal of the New England Ski Museum, and produces most of the exhibits that the Museum changes on an annual basis.
