Friday, May 8 at 7pm

Dave Ehlert takes the stage in Burton Hall as Samuel Clemens, better known by the pen name Mark Twain, when Easton Library presents “Mark Twain 100 Years Later.”

Twain’s life story wound round all his famous quotes with a strong emphasis on the importance of literacy.  “One who can read but won’t, has no advantage over one who can’t!”

Twain is one of America’s greatest authors of the nineteenth century.  Embracing the role of Mark Twain, Ehlert gives entertaining performances across the country with historical insight into this famous American literary author.

This program is fun, educational, free and appropriate for all ages.

Construction Grant Brings New Look to Library!

new sign 2While summer went flying by, hammers and drills and saws could frequently be heard at the library!  As a result, the library computer center is sporting a whole new look and can now accommodate 5 public access computer stations.  We are presently awaiting the arrival of a new desktop computer and new task chairs.  Our carpenter will soon return to begin renovations to the public restroom.

And….in case you haven’t already noticed, a brand new sign has sprung up on the front lawn.  Plans are in the works for new outside lighting as well. 

The above was accomplished with Construction Challenge Grant funds awarded to Easton Library by the Southern Adirondack Library System.

Easton Suffragists

In the fall of 2009 writer and historian, Teri Gay launched her book Strength Without Compromise: Womanly Influence and Political Identity in Turn-of-the-Twentieth Century Rural Upstate New York.  The Political Equality Club of Easton is highlighted and the work of its two most ardent leaders, Lucy Allen and Chloe Sisson, showcases the Easton club members commitment to “votes for women.”

New York Archives magazine, in its Fall 2011 issue, also features the women of the Easton P.E.C. and the unique approch taken by those rural women in seeking to gain the vote.  Stop by the library to borrow this magazine and read The Suffragists of Easton also written by Teri Gay.
