Granite State Treasure Hunters Club

Thursday, June 12th at 6 p.m. 

Join us for a Presentation and 

Metal Detector Demonstration

The Granite State Treasure Hunters Club for Historic Preservation was formed in May of 1974 by Don and Paulette Wilson. Our Club is dedicated to the metal detecting hobby with the intent to promote treasure hunting through safe and responsible practices. Our Club is the oldest registered club of its kind in New Hampshire and in 1980 our newsletter, the Diggers Digest was created in order to keep our members informed of club activities.

Children's Artwork on Display

On loan from the Fermata Arts Foundation located in Avon, Connecticut, the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Children's Artwork is featured until June 11th in the upper and lower levels of Hall Memorial Library. This relatively new republic is a landlocked mountain region which seceded from Azerbaijan in 1988. Though there is a rocky truce between Azerbaijan and the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, it is not recognized by the United Nations as an independent state.

The Fermata Arts Foundation's mission is to aid in the preservation of peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation. The model for achieving this is through the synthesis of art, architecture, philosophy and poetry. The Corporation exists to promote and encourage intercultural dialogue between countries, through which the representatives of different countries can discover shared values and
spiritual commonality.

The art, with it's bright colors and images of daily life, is the work of students ages 7 to 15 years. It is charged with positive, uplifting energy, and is well worth a trip to the library to experience it for yourself. We hope to see you here!
