After a long and eventful summer, we will be taking a break from our weekly activities. Keep your eyes out for Kid Fun Time and TAG events in September!
The last activity of the summer reading program will be on July 20th at 6 pm in the library park. We have encouraged families to attend all of our programs throughout the summer and this is no exception. Bring your kids, parents, grand-kids, dogs, and anyone else you can find to the park for hot dogs, s’mores and a short presentation to celebrate the beginning of a new school year and the end of our summer reading program.
Storyteller Kurtis Kelly dramatizes four of history’s most unusual and fascinating stories from the annals of health and medicine. Learn how a British country doctor—witnessing a world ravaged by smallpox—observed how milkmaids in his village were immune—and he introduced the word “vaccination” to our vocabulary. Meet Dr. William J. Morton, who introduced the world in 1896 to an entrancing new discovery—the X-Ray. Hear the intriguing story of Laura Dewey Bridgman, both blind and deaf, who caught the world’s attention 25 years before Helen Keller. Finally, there is arsenic, a classic poison, which is in fact essential to human biology—but what arsenic mystery was unearthed while investigating the death of Napoleon—130 years later? These stories teach us about history—and provide a frame of reference for today’s concepts of health and wellness. We hope you’ll join us on June 15th at 3:30 pm for this wonderful event!
