This week's DVD of the Week is 'Book Club'  
Four friends have had rocky relationships and ups and downs in their love lives. They try to shake things up choosing 'Fifty Shades of Grey' for their book club, and it works to shocking effect. Through mutual motivation, they 'make their next chapter the best chapter'. It's not Shakespeare, but it doesn't need to be.
Featured Event
The Great Sheep Boom
Thursday, September 13
In a brief 30-year period in the early 19th century the New Hampshire countryside became home to hundreds of thousands of sheep. Production of wool became a lucrative business, generating fortunes and providing the only time of true agricultural prosperity in the state's history. It left behind a legacy of fine architecture and thousands of miles of rugged stonewalls. Steve Taylor discusses how farmers overcame enormous challenges to make sheep husbandry succeed, but forces from beyond New Hampshire were to doom the industry, with social consequences that would last a century. This is a joint program with the Thompson-Ames Historical Society.

Have you heard that whirr-whirr, bzz-bzz by the computers at the library? The 3d printer has been active for a month now and it has been printing for the public! If you have a model yourself, and idea for one, or just questions about how it works, swing by the library on Wednesday from 10am-1pm to learn about it. There are introductory guides available for those who want to try it out for themselves. Everything you need to print is at the Library and the only cost is for the materials used.

Don't miss Steve Taylor talking about the Great Sheep Boom from the early 19th century. This joint program with the Thompson-Ames Historical Society will take place this Thursday from 6:30-7:30pm.
