Young Ladies Library Association

How Fourteen Teenagers Changed Plymouth

The Young Ladies Library Association is celebrating their 150th anniversary! They have been promoting literacy and culture in Plymouth since 1873. The YLLA is the reason we have our wonderful Pease Library and the YLLA continues to support the library in a variety of ways. To celebrate their anniversary, they have curated an exhibition showcasing some of the highlights of their first 150 years in the former home of the library, the Old Webster Courthouse.

Is there an exhibit on view now?
No, but come back to visit in the spring and join the Plymouth Historical Society in celebrating our 50th's anniversary.

Program: Range the Wild Woods by Jeff Warner

Please join us to welcome Jeff Warner, who will be presenting Range the Wild Woods: Loggers' Songs and Stories. Loggers at the turn of the twentieth century cut the timber that built and warmed our houses and provided the ties for America's ever-expanding railroads. Timber established Portsmouth, Portland, and Bangor as important ports, sending New England lumber around the world. Folklorist Jeff Warner relates the songs and stories of the people who worked the wintry woods, showing their humor and their grit, and giving us a glimpse into everyday life in long ago lumber camps.

See the flier to the right for additional information.
