Greeting Card Exhibit

IMG_0403“My heart wants to create and draw – my hands don’t!”

Dottie Harrison began making greeting cards in the mid-80s. She learned to stamp cards in the 1990s and took classes and joined stamping groups to hone her skills. During the month of August, her beautiful cards are on display at the library. Many of which she had to retrieve from family and friends for whom she made them. There are also stamped footstools and quilling on photo mats on exhibit.

150 Years Ago

150About 35 years ago, Janet Heslam bought from an antique shop in Brooks four daily journals from October 1864 to October 1871.  It turns out they were written by a man in Montville who farmed, but he also supervised the one room school houses. At the end of the first journal, she found the signature of H. M. Howard. The other journals are not signed. Janet determined the journalist was 27, in 1865, and his daughter Eva died in 1864. Janet decided to transcribe these journals to share in her weekly letters to her grandchildren. She offered to share these transcriptions so they could be posted on the Library webpage for everyone to read. We will post one a month. It will be interesting as we go through the year to compare the daily happenings of a man 150 years ago to the present day. We hope you enjoy!
