Step back in time with us and this upcoming living history program featuring 'Mary Todd Lincoln: An Unconventional Woman' right here at Kimball Library on Wednesday, February 12th, from 6:30-8:00pm.  This 'sure to be a great night out' event is sponsored by the NH Humanities Countil Humanities to Go grant and the generous Friends of Kimball Library.

Raised in a slaveholding family, Mary Todd Lincoln evolved into an advocate for abolition. The intellectual equal of well-educated men, she spoke her mind openly in an era when a woman’s success in life was measured by marriage and motherhood. Against her family’s wishes, she married the man she loved and partnered with him to achieve their goal of becoming President and First Lady.
Sparkling with humor and insight, Sally Mummey as Mary Lincoln shares stories of their life and love; triumphs and challenges; and life in the White House during the tumultuous years of the Civil War.  Sally Mummey is an award winning lifetime member of the Association of Lincoln Presenters.  She resides in Seabrook, NH.

We will be closed on Monday, February 17th, for Presidents' Day.  Stock up accordingly.  You’ll get an extra day with the newest 2 day loan movies.
