Seabrook Public Library has two interesting programs coming up in June.
On Tuesday, June 11 the Seabrook Library will be host Joan Ryan, author of “Scholarship Matters.” The program begins at 6 p.m. This informative presentation can help students and parents alike with the laborious process of preparing and applying for college scholarships.
And at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 13, the library will present, “The Making of Strawbery Banke,” featuring J. Dennis Robinson.
Robinson is the author of “Strawbery Banke: a Seaport Museum 400 Years in the Making,” and will lead a public discussion on the history of “America’s oldest neighborhood.” Tapping into private letters, unpublished records, and personal interviews, Robinson explores the politics of historical preservation. Through colorful and historic illustrations, the author looks candidly at mistakes made and lessons learned in this grassroots success story of the formation of one of the Seacoast’s biggest attractions, Strawbery Banke, of Portsmouth.
This program is free and open to the public and presented as a result of a grant Seabrook Public Library received from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
