The Windham Public Library hosts exhibits in its display case several times a year. For more information, please contact Sally Bannen at the library.
February 1, 2015 – April 30, 2015 : Virginia March
A collection of teapots from Virginia March will be on display through April 30th. The young collector started gathering teapots three years ago, when she was seven. On display are several vessels with untraditional shapes, from a square pot to a lighthouse-shaped one. There are also a few teapots with their matching tea cups alongside them. Since she has been anxiously awaiting the library’s 10th anniversary Tea for You @ the Library event (March 17th, 1:30-2:30pm), her teapot exhibit is very timely! Stop by the library for a look at this fun collection.
November 1, 2014 – January 31, 2015 : Jen Alvino
Colorful coffee mugs from the collection of Jen Alvino will be on exhibit through January 31st. Nearly two dozen mugs from across the US– from New Hampshire to California– are displayed, showing a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. “It’s a great way to be reminded of the trips I’ve taken and the memories I created,” said Jen. “They all have a story and just when I think I have enough I find another that I just have to have!”
August 1, 2014 – October 31, 2014 : Lydia March
An assortment of dolls from the collection of Lydia March will be on display through October 31st. Nearly two dozen dolls are shown, representing the history of the United States and various cultures from around the world. Lydia began collecting them when she was 6 years old, after a great-aunt sent her some of the dolls. Lydia thought “they were the coolest thing ever.” The dolls on exhibit display a variety of colors, styles, and materials.
May 1, 2014 – July 31, 2014 : Brandon Currier
A small fleet of airplane models from the collection of Brandon Currier will be on display through July 31st. Since he was very young, Brandon has loved airplanes– as seen in the photographs that accompany the display. He has always had ambitions to become a pilot, like his father, and last summer his dream became closer when the college-bound young man received his piloting license. The models on display were gifts over the years, and would be of interest to anyone who shares a love of aircrafts.
