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.

How will our exhibition space continue to evolve?

All events take place at the Plymouth Historical Museum in the Old Webster Courthouse on Court Street and are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.

Program - Thirteen Days in October:

The Untold Cuban Missile Crisis Story

Plymouth Historical Society, in partnership with Pease Public Library and NH Humanities, will present "Thirteen Days in October: The Untold Cuban Missile Crisis Story" by Michael Tougias at 7pm on Sept. 13 at Pease Public Library. We hope you can join us!

At the height of the Cold War, two things saved humanity: the strategic wisdom of John F. Kennedy and the U2 aerial spy program. Based on declassified intelligence and interviews with the pilots, Michael Tougias and co-author Casey Sherman's book Above and Beyond: John F. Kennedy and America's Most Dangerous Cold War Spy Mission grounds this conversation about presidential decision-making, nuclear containment, intelligence-gathering, and public information. It's a timely topic given todays' concerns about the United States, North Korea, and Iran. Tougias gives special emphasis to the U2 pilots who flew unarmed over Cuba to secure photographic proof that the Soviets were installing nuclear missiles on the island.
