Because the finish line is in sight, and Team Red wants to win!

Each chapter in this action-packed adventure series is bursting with totally true facts about wild and wonderful creatures, dangerous habitats, maps, and more!

What makes a modern heroine? Three Sisters in Crime authors, Connie Johnson Hambley, Leigh Perry, and Susan Oleksiw, talk about their female protagonists through the prism of modern expectations of femininity and the concept of heroism.

Connie Johnson Hambley is the author of The Charity, The Troubles, and The Wake. Leigh Perry is an Agatha award winner and also writes as Toni L.P. Kelner. As Leigh Perry, she writes the Family Skeleton series and as Toni L.P. Kelner, she writes the Laura Fleming mysteries. Susan Oleksiw writes the Pioneer Valley series, with Below the Tree Line as the first in the series.

We will have a discussion and book signing, as well as light refreshments.

Photography Show - Joerg Meissner

When digital technology revolutionized photography, LightRoom became Joerg's  new darkroom. It was an invitation to experiment that he could not resist. and Joerg's passion for photography was re-ignited. The technical and creative aspects of the medium finally started coming together for him.

Today, his camera helps him go through life with his eyes wide open. Behind the viewfinder, Joerg is in the present, sees more deliberately, experiences more intensely, and finds beauty in the world around him. He is drawn to the outdoors, to landscapes, seascapes, textures, patterns, and abstracts.

If Joerge's photos evoke an emotion, trigger a memory, or help you see differently, then he has reached his goal.  The show runs through noon on Saturday, November 24, 2018.

Come meet the man behind the lense on Saturday, June 8 from 11 am to 1 pm. Light refreshments will be available. Sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Library.

Reconstructing History & Genealogy: Mom's WWII Letters

Join us as we hear from, Corinne Smith, a writer and poet, who has worked as a librarian for more than 30 years. Corinne will talk about her experience finding WWII letters in her mother's belongings and returning them to the families of the servicemen who wrote them.

In May 2017, Corinne found her mother's stash of letters from 16 servicemen that she had corresponded with in 1944 and 1945. Most of the men were from her mother's hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, or from her college roommate's hometown of Trenton, New Jersey. Nearly all of the writers were now gone and could no longer offer information or explanations for what they had written. Corinne began to trace the soldiers' family trees with one goal in mind: to return the letters in person to their children. Learn about her ongoing project, and hear some of the stories of the men, their experiences, and what their relatives have to say today. This presentation links history and genealogy to present-day research and diligence. It revisits a time that we may not want to forget. And it may prompt audience members to wonder for themselves what treasures may be lurking in their own old family boxes -- and how they can share the information with others.

Join us as we hear from, Corinne Smith, a writer and poet, who has worked as a librarian for more than 30 years. Corinne will talk about her experience finding WWII letters in her mother's belongings and returning them to the families of the servicemen who wrote them.

In May 2017, Corinne found her mother's stash of letters from 16 servicemen that she had corresponded with in 1944 and 1945. Most of the men were from her mother's hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, or from her college roommate's hometown of Trenton, New Jersey. Nearly all of the writers were now gone and could no longer offer information or explanations for what they had written. Corinne began to trace the soldiers' family trees with one goal in mind: to return the letters in person to their children. Learn about her ongoing project, and hear some of the stories of the men, their experiences, and what their relatives have to say today.

Roll throughout the region. With sets of original music and some tastycover songs you will see a tight and precise performance that can only

The lineup includes Matt, Deane and Dave Ballou, Gary Young and GaryBlaisdell.

Over the years all members have branched out to perform with other groups and have ventured out solo but have always soldiered on with
their brothers in music, The Ballou Brothers Band. Currently releasing their fourth studio album, Barn Burner, the band
primarily plays at private functions and fund-raising events. They still occasionally perform around Southern New Hampshire.

Live @ Lawrence Library is held in the smoke-free intimate environment of the Art Gallery. Fantastic acoustics draw musicians and listeners from throughout New England. Light refreshments and Starbucks coffee are provided by Friends of the Library.

All library events are funded by the Friends of the Lawrence Library and are Free and open to the public.
