Peggy Noonan, former Presidential speech writer, Wall Street Journal Columnist and CBS News contributor, offered an opinion piece on CBS Sunday Morning January 15, 2017, about inaugural addresses. (link to the piece below)
In it, she mentioned Abraham Lincoln's second Inaugural Address, given on March 4, 1865, as a "great inaugural masterpiece".
Several years ago, Vermont historian Howard Coffin was doing some research at the Lanpher Library and pointed out a loose insert in our bound copies of the 1865 newspaper. It was Lincoln's second inaugural address printed by the Lamoille Newsdealer. Rather than risk damage or theft, our Trustees had it preserved in an archival frame. It now hangs in the Lanpher Memorial Library outside of the office door for all to see and read.
The Lanpher Memorial Library will be open on Monday, January 16, 2017, 12:00-7:00.
Stop in and discover books, audio books and DVDs written by and about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., for whom this day is set aside to honor and remember.
Night Owl Story Time takes place at 6:00 p.m. and our monthly Junior Naturalist Program will present: Snow Secrets: Do YOU know the secret of snow? How does a snowflake form and is every snowflake really different? How can snow keep things warm? Snowflake collection, observations, snow melting experiments and snow detective scavenger hunt are some of the activities to look forward to during this free program sponsored by LVVS. Thank you!
