Poe Zaps Potter!

ravenIn the NHTI Library’s Second Annual March Madness competition, Edgar Allan Poe – author, poet, editor and literary critic – dead for over 160 years – just edged prolific contemporary novelist J.K. Rowling in an extremely tight contest.  Quoth Poe’s Raven, “evermore.”


NHTI Supports New Futures

At 8:30 on the morning of April 1, NHTI'ers Donna Dooley, Jill Savage and student Eric Miller joined almost 600 citizens who met at the State House to represent the more than 300 people who died last year in the state as a result of a drug overdose. They served as a reminder, and hopefully a prompt to restore substance abuse-related services cut by the House Finance Committee from the governor’s proposed budget.

The event was organized by New Futures, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that advocates, educates and collaborates to prevent and reduce alcohol and other drug problems in New Hampshire. New Futures envisions a State and local communities where public policies support prevention, treatments and recovery oriented efforts to reduce alcohol and other drug problems.

Librarians Find Their Muse: Round 2

The NHTI Library Staff is still seeking their muse, and the fruits of their labors are once again on display in the library as part of Paint Night 2, a team-building event held under the guidance of Prof. Meghan Ambra.  (Steve insists that the display of paintings created by the staff during Paint Night 1 has been one of the most popular exhibits in library history!)

   Bearing Witness to
Domestic and Sexual Violence and Stalking

You are welcome to join us to create a shirt on:
Wednesday, April 15
11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Student Center Rotunda

The Clothesline Project, which is held in conjunction with Crime Victims’ Rights Week, is a visual display of shirts with written messages and/or illustrations that have been created by survivors and their families and friends.  These shirts reflect their experiences and the impact the violence has had on all of their lives.  The purpose of the Clothesline Project is to educate, to bear witness to victims’ courage to survive and heal, or mourn those who have died as a result of this violence.

We encourage all those who have been or know someone who has been affected by domestic and sexual violence and stalking to make a shirt.  There is no cost involved with making a shirt.  All supplies are provided for you at the t-shirt making day and at the display.

There will be an additional program and a large display held on Victims’ Rights Day at:
Red River Theater, Concord, NH, on April 21, 2015 from 11am – 5pm.

If you would like more information about the Clothesline Project, please call Donna Dooley at 271-6484 ext. 4185 or the AmeriCorps Victim Assistance Program at (603) 224-8893 ext. 315.
