Peterborough Town Library | Peterborough, NH

Movies help us experience each other and the world around us, can educate and enlighten us, and can lead to meaningful and much-needed discourse. Lights, Camera, Civics! hopes to be a catalyst for such conversations. For that reason, New Hampshire Humanities has awarded a grant to the NH Institute for Civics Education for film screenings in all ten NH counties to generate multigenerational conversations about law, justice, and civics.  The film chosen this year is To Kill A Mockingbird.

Bradford Old Post Office | Bradford, NH

Quilts tell stories, and quilt history is full of myths and misinformation as well as heart-warming tales of service and tradition. Nearly every world culture that has cold weather uses quilted textiles-quilting is NOT just an American art. Pam Weeks weaves world history, women's history, industrial history and just plain wonderful stories into her presentation. Participants are invited to bring one quilt for identification and/or story sharing.
