It's Not About the Hike
Thursday, May 16 at 6:30 - Freedom Town Hall
On Thursday, May 16, at 6:30 p.m., in the Town Hall on Elm Street in Freedom , New Hampshire, the Friends of the Freedom library is hosting Nancy Sporborg and Pat Piper who will speak on " It's Not About the Hike". These two women from Keene have hiked more than 200 mountains since 2006 - they're real peak baggers - having previously been non-hikers. They've climbed all 67 4,000 foot peaks in New England, and they hike year-round. But it's not about the hike. It's about getting out of your comfort zone, sharing friendship and joy, learning how to love yourself and so much more. Come join us! Light refreshments will be served after this free program and the hall is handicapped accessible. Questions? Call the library at 539-5176.

Featured Artist for May and June
Photographer Dave Gorke is artist of the month for May and June at the library. Dave’s photos are of his travels around the country with his wife, Carol. He started in 1983 when photography was still done using film and a darkroom. Dave took his first photography workshop in 2001 in the Shenandoah Mountains in Virginia and used what he learned there to make quality images ever since. He has had some of his images published and has sold them in galleries and from his own studio. His travels have taken him to 47 states to photograph nature in national parks and other scenic areas. His images at the library attest to the beauty of America and his skill as a photographer.
