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!” Stop by the library for a look at this interesting collection.
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.
February 1, 2014 – April 30, 2014 : June Hawkes & Barbara Keef, tea time
Two library employees– June Hawkes and Barbara Keef– combined their collections and talents. Over a dozen matching cups and saucers, an assortment of delicate tea spoons, a miniature tea set, and other items. The cup and saucer sets on display are from June’s collection. Some were collected when she and her husband, Dick, traveled while others had belonged to her mother. Barbara, along with Laurel T. Parker, co-hosts the regularly-scheduled “Tea for You @ the Library” program which is free for anyone in the community to attend.
