Virtual Program - Mines and Mysteries: Woodbury's Copper Mine

 

 

VIRTUAL EVENT

On Connecticut Trails Day in 2017, self-proclaimed rock-hound Jeff Sherman joined an organized walk along Woodbury’s Trolley Bed Trail.  When he veered off on to a different part of the trail, he noticed a large hole in the side of a nearby hill.  Fascinated, he returned later with Naturalist Pete Rzasa to take a closer look.  What they discovered were holes drilled inside of the cave, leading them to realize what they had stumbled upon could quite possibly be an early copper mine.  The discovery soon led to the involvement of filmmaker Mike Sandone who is the creator of a web series about exploring abandoned mines in CT and NY.  He created “Mines and Mysteries: The Woodbury Copper Mine”, a documentary film about the discovery of the mine and the history of early mining in Woodbury and nearby areas.  The fascinating film shares a variety of information and interviews from experts in the field, including Woodbury’s award-winning Historian Susan Shepard, as well as giving the viewer a superb look inside of the mine itself. 

The film, “Mines and Mysteries: The Woodbury Copper Mine” is available to view on demand on the Library’s website here: https://woodburylibraryct.org/woodbury-copper-mine/

Suffragettes in Corsalettes Virtual Event

Join the Grounded Goodwife for a tribute to the Suffragettes who won the right to vote for women in the virtual presentation “Suffragettes in Corselettes: The Evolution of Underwear and our 19th amendment”.   For centuries, women have allowed themselves to be squeezed, twisted, and squished to conform to desired shapes. The history of underwear reveals a lot about women’s changing roles in society – how we perceive ourselves, and how we’re viewed by others. The 1910s saw an end to the hourglass figure with a tiny waist – women were finally able to breathe and move more freely. Did the demise of tightlacing help women gain the right to vote in 1920? Underwear matters.  This fast paced, often hilarious look at the evolution of women’s undergarments is presented by Velya Jancz-Urban, author and teacher, and Ehris Urban, herbalist, The Grounded Goodwife.

Titanic - A Date with Destiny Virtual Event

Listen to story of the Titanic – its celebrated construction, employing thousands during difficult times, its sailing, life on board and final hours. Join us as we share insights about a well-known story that might change your viewpoint of that fateful date with destiny. Few know that the Titanic’s plunge into the frigid Atlantic was predicted more than a decade before the disaster. In a strange twist of fate, the author of that prediction inadvertently foretold his own death; he was on board the Titanic when it sank in April 1912.

Presenter John Cilio is a historian and storyteller. John lives in Sherman, CT and is the author of six historical books and over 200 articles covering a broad range of topics and has spoken on a wide range of topics in over 60 countries. His goal is to make history relevant, engaging, and enlightening.

Pocket Scavenger Challenge

Definition of a scavenger (according to Keri Smith):

Scavengers go on adventures no matter where they are, they notice the ground beneath their feet and prowl the world looking for treasures near and far.  They see beauty in simple items, when sometimes others do not.  Scavengers are always prepared to collect!  Does this sound like you?  Register and pick up your copy of "The Pocket Scavenger" and virtually meet and share your findings with other like minded collectors!  The book is full of great ideas of things to look for and document.  We will meet on 3 occasions to share what we've collected!

During the virtual meetings, plan on sharing up to 5 items listed in the book, where and when you found them and the story behind your treasures!  You can always join and see what others have found, too.  It will be fun to share our discoveries! 

Grade 6 & up, space is limited!

During the virtual meetings, plan on sharing up to 5 items listed in the book, where and when you found them and the story behind your treasures!  You can always join and see what others have found, too.  It will be fun to share our discoveries!
