HAMPSTEAD - We tend to think of the one room schoolhouse that educated our great grandparents with fondness, as a symbol of simpler times. As with so many recollections of times gone by, there was another side to the one room school. On Tues., January 14, Steve Taylor will explore the lasting legacies of the one room school and how these legacies still resonate with modern schools in New Hampshire.

Steve Taylor is an independent scholar, a farmer, a journalist and a public official. He and his son have a maple syrup and cheese making operation in Meriden Village. He has been a newspaper reporter and editor and was executive director of the New Hampshire Humanities Council for 25 years. He is a lifelong student of our state’s rural culture.

This intriguing presentation is supported by the NH Humanities council. It will be held in the second floor meeting room of the Hampstead Public Library at 7:00 p.m., on January 14th. It is free and open to the public. Everyone who is interested in education in New Hampshire will find this of interest. Refreshments will be available. Members of the Friends of the Library are invited to stay after the program for a meeting.

THRIFT SHOP TO RE-OPEN - Volunteers have been busy restocking the Hollyhock Thrift Shop in preparation for its reopening on Tues., January 7. Donations of good quality, nicely used clothing for men, women and children may be left at the library during regular library hours. Please don’t make the bags too heavy for our volunteers to handle easily. Thrift Shop hours are Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12 Noon. All proceeds from Thrift Shop sales are used by the Friends of the Library to support your public library in a variety of ways that are not funded by the town budget. They bring many “extras” to Hampstead that would not otherwise be available.
