STRONG WOMEN SERIES 

The Randolph Public Library is pleased to join other North Country Libraries in a continuing series "The year of Strong Women". Three free programs are available via the online video platform Zoom. This fall, a partnership of five north country libraries is happy to resume the celebration of amazing women whose courage and determination changed the future of our country.  This series of three events is being presented by five North Woods Libraries; Berlin, Gorham, Milan, and Randolph Public Libraries and WMCC Fortier Library,  with guidance, funding and materials from New Hampshire Humanities and the National Endowments for the Humanities, and cooperation of the NH State Library.

Completing the Strong Women series, on Wednesday, November 18, at 6pm we will “Meet Lucy Stone: Enter the Antebellum World of the Abolition and Woman's Rights Movements”.  There was a time in our national history when a married woman did not have legal rights to the money she earned, the property she inherited, or the children she bore.  During this same era citizens of the United States thought it a legal and rational pursuit to buy and trade human beings.  Lucy Stone, (born in Brookfield Massachusetts 1818), decided this was not the nation she wanted to grow in and spent her life speaking out for the democracy that this nation, upon its inception, had promised its inhabitants.  Crisscrossing the country, she spoke eloquently and passionately about the most important issues of her time.  A contemporary of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, the best known female orator of her era, will address the issues of woman’s rights and abolition, plus share with her audience chapters from her own life.  Ms. Stone will be summoned through the personage of storyteller/actress Judith Black, who was commissioned to create this work by the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities in partnership with the Tsongas Industrial History Center at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, as part of the State House Woman’s Leadership Project.  Judith’s website is www.storiesalive.com.

Letter from the Randolph Public Library Trustees

 

Dear Randolph Library Friends and Randolph Town Citizens and Neighbors:

The Library remains closed due to the Town and State responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are working on plans for reopening in a manner which protects the health, safety, and wellbeing of our community and our librarian. We are monitoring communications from the Town Selectmen, the Town Health Officer, Governor Sununu, and the Reopening NH Libraries Task Force, and we anticipate additional guidance on May 31st, based on information in the State’s active Executive Order.

While our Library has been physically closed, our dedicated librarian Yvonne Jenkins has offered curbside service which she plans to continue. Also, she has been updating our website randolphnhpubliclibrary.org, cataloging and updating the collection, and planning to offer virtual programming. She encourages everyone to visit our website for online access to eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines. Here are some of the projects she has been working on:

  • the Kids Summer Reading Program with an online tracking program
  • an innovative solution to replacing the Annual Summer Book Sale
  • additional outdoor seating in the garden and easy access to wi-fi

 You may keep up to date with our latest news and online offerings by visiting our website and following us on Facebook and Instagram.

If you have questions or need assistance with curbside service or digital materials, please contact the Library by e-mail at randolphnhlibrary@gmail.com

We hope you are safe and well during this difficult time.

Our best regards,

 

Randolph Public Library Board of Trustees, May 26, 2020
