Upcoming Events

Things You Learn When You Write The Dictionary

Date: 9/03/2020

Time: 6:30pm

Description:

While The Dictionary is frequently called upon to justify positions and settle debates, most people know relatively little about how dictionaries are made and what their aims are. Join Merriam-Webster Senior Editor Emily Brewster for a peek into a lexicographer's view of The Dictionary. We'll discuss language change, annoying words, and just how it is that a term like "chillax" comes to qualify for dictionary entry.

Please register at the circulation desk or by calling 583-3408.

Reconstructing History & Genealogy: Mom’s WWII Letters

Date: 9/24/2020

Time: 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Description:

“Reconstructing History & Genealogy: Mom’s WWII Letters”

In May 2017, Corinne Smith found her mother's stash of more than 80 letters from 16 servicemen she had corresponded with in 1944-1945. Corinne began to trace the soldiers' family trees with one goal in mind: to return the letters in person to their children. This presentation links history and genealogy to present-day research and diligence. It revisits a time that we may not want to forget. And it may prompt others to wonder for themselves what treasures lurk in their own old family boxes, and how they can share the information with others.

 

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Ludlow Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

 

Corinne H. Smith is a writer who is originally from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. She served for several years on the board of The Blair County Genealogical Society in Altoona, Pennsylvania. Her first book was a self-published family history titled "From Saxony to the Lehigh Valley: The Descendents of Ludwig Hossfeld" (1992). Since then, she has written several books about American author Henry David Thoreau. She is a former librarian and lives in Gardner, Massachusetts.
