An eclectic mix of “old stuff” is currently on display at the Windham Public Library, now through July 31st. According to the exhibitors, there is an assortment of old tools, automobile parts, and household items that are not commonly found today. A list of the items is on top of the display case, covered with a poster– allowing viewers to look and guess at the objects before checking the list. How many can you recognize? Stop by the library for a peek at these interesting objects from past years and see how many you can identify.
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!
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.
