"Dragonfly" Sculpture added to Library Garden
The Meredith Public Library is pleased to be part of the Greater Meredith Program’s “Meredith Sculpture Walk”. We are number seven on the tour as the Greater Meredith Program brings art to Main Street and park spaces along the lake. By the end of the summer there will be over twenty sculptures on display throughout town! Maps of the tour will soon be available at many places around town. Thank you so much to GMP for including the library. We couldn’t be happier with the piece that you chose for us! We also enjoy the view of “American Dog” which is just across the street from us.
A Theater Near You
Tuesday, July 29
When did movies first arrive in New Hampshire? Where did they play? Who presented them? Who saw them? When and where were the state’s first movie theaters constructed? How did a transient new medium run by traveling showmen become one of the most popular and enduring pastimes of the 20th century? This program explores these questions and more as Jeffrey Klenotic presents examples from his ongoing research, which aims to produce a digital archive and interactive map charting every venue where movies played in the Granite State from the medium’s origins in 1896 to the rise of television in the 1940s. Those attending will be welcome to share their own knowledge of local movie venues and their own memories of “going to the movies.”
Jeffrey Klenotic is an Associate Professor of Communication Arts at the University of New Hampshire. Sponsored by the UNH Speakers' Bureau and the Friends of the Meredith Library.
