“Twice-seen in the White Mountains” by Richard Moore

ARTIST EXHIBIT AND RECEPTION

New Hampshire photographer Richard Moore will exhibit his “Twice-seen in the White Mountains” work at the library from July 2 –August 13.

The exhibit consists of composite photographs of iconic locations in the White Mountains, photographed a century apart and digitally merged. The antique photographs on which the composites are based are from 19th Century stereographs.  The exhibit tells the story of the once-great international stereograph industry, which had a major center in Littleton, NH.  An interactive feature allows visitors to view a Nineteenth Century stereograph with a Virtual Reality viewer and a cell phone, bringing the past into the present.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Congratulation to the following children who have read 100 books so far: Delany Girouard, Lucas Girouard, Abigail Hanson, Ezra Perry and Lydia Scott and also to Bryanne Connelly and Elijah Davis who have read 200 books! Great job!

Carole Brown would like to thank Miriam Yeaton and all her friends from the knitting group for a nice “surprise” birthday party!

Bone Builders continues to meet at the library every Tuesday and Thursday from 9 – 10 a.m.
