New STEM and WWI Exhibits at the Library

New STEM and World War I exhibits at the NHTI Library

Two new exhibits at the NHTI Library span the years, from "ancient" history to the most contemporary of topics.  One commemorates the 100th Anniversary of World War I (1914-1918).  The other is devoted to STEM subjects -- science, technology, engineering and math.  Both exhibits encompass both historical works and cutting-edge research, and include films and electronic media as well as books.  And all items in both exhibits are available to borrow.

Check them out!  Both exhibits will be on display through September.

New Watercolor Exhibit in the Library Gallery

"Augustine" by Deborah Barrett-Smith"Sunset" by Deborah Barrett-SmithDeborah S. Barrett-Smith graduated from NHTI's nursing program in the mid-70s.  Over the next 20 years she continued her education, graduating from UNH, and from Franklin Pierce Law School in 1990.

"Unfortunately I was forced into early retirement for health reasons," she writes.  "I searched for something to fill the void after leaving the job I loved.  I began watercolor painting five years ago when I took an eight week class at a Florida RV park.  I have been painting ever since.  Art has gone from therapy to being my new passion."

"Iris" by Deborah Barrett-SmithDeborah's paintings will be on display in the Library Gallery throughout the month of September.  September also features jewelry by Vicky Libby, and photographs by Johann "Hanz" Busch have been held over from last month.
