Brewing in New Hampshire

Presented by the New Hampshire Humanities Council

Friday, May 26th @ 7 PM

Glenn Knoblock explores the fascinating history of New Hampshire's beer and ale brewing industry from Colonial days, when it was home- and tavern-based, to today's modern breweries and brew pubs. Unusual and rare photos and advertisements document this changing industry and the state's earliest brewers. Whether you're a beer connoisseur or a "tea-totaler", this lecture will be enjoyed by adults of all ages. Afterwards, a tasting of New Hampshire beers will be generously provided by Greg & Jane's Beer & Wine for free at 63 Main Street in Epping. All is free and open to the public!

The Five Laws of Library Science

Dr. S. R. Ranganathan, considered the father of modern library science, published his 5 laws in 1931: Books are for use; Every reader his or her book; Every book its reader; Save the time of the reader; The library is a growing organism.
