misc_none 6:30 PM The Assassination of President Lincoln and the End of an Era Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference Department   860-652-7720   
   

President Abraham LincolnHamish Lutris, Associate Professor of History at Housatonic Community College, examines this date in history: On April 14, 1865, an assassin’s bullet put an end to the life of Abraham Lincoln. Many believe that the history of post-war America might have been quite different, had he lived. Yet the assassination of President Lincoln is also considered by many to be the end of an era in American history, not only closing out the civil war, but ushering in a new era of industrial – instead of agricultural – wealth and ending true independence for Americans from their national government. This talk will focus on the killing of the president, but will also examine the slow close of the antebellum era, and on the end of the civil war itself. Registration required and begins March 17 online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.

ToddlerFor children ages 15-24 months
The goal of this parent-child storytime for ages 15-24 months is to foster an early love of books and to remind parents of the importance of reading to children. Nursery rhymes, finger plays, bounces and songs encourage language skills. Adults will participate in all activities, so dress comfortably. In order to devote your full attention to your child, no siblings please. A child born in January, February or March 2013 may register for Side-by-Side if they have already attended One is W-One-derful.

Mother and Child ReadingFor two-year-olds
This program for two-year-olds and their parents or caregivers is a half-hour of one-on-one sharing in a group setting. All are active participants in the circle games, finger plays, action rhymes and stories. Repetition of favorite rhymes builds confidence, and children are introduced to the alphabet, colors and shapes. In order to make this a special time for you and your child, no siblings please. A child born in January, February or March 2012 may register for Smart Start I if they have already attended Side-by-Side and are comfortable without a parent present.
