New Ipswich Library

Dan‘s Balloons Live! is a 45 minute adventure meandering through balloons, magic, imagination, and silliness.  It’s a very interactive show that involves anywhere from 10-15 kids from the audience.  It even has a moving, talking balloon robot! This year, Dan has some really great tricks to go along with the build-a-better-world theme.

Dan Staples is an award-winning balloon artist and entertainer based out of Nashua, NH.  Dan has been a balloon artist for 3 years, twisting at corporate events, birthday parties, baby showers, and holiday events.  Dan’s Balloons was created as a place to share fun artwork with people who need a smile.

This event is free, but a donation for the St. Vincent-DePaul Food Pantry in Greenville is always appreciated.

At the end of the show, the Kona Ice truck from Kona Ice of NH will be parked outside the Library. Bring some money to enjoy a cold treat and you can help support the Library – if Kona Ice makes enough in sales, they will donate part of their profits to the Library!

Henry B. Hoover Architecture Talk

March 9, 2017

7:00pm

New Ipswich Library

This illustrated talk tells the story of architect Henry B. Hoover (1902-1989), American-trained, who in the late 1930s began a long career in New England. His “brand” of residential architecture was informed by but different from the normative, Bauhaus-driven idea of modern architecture. Beginning in 1937 with his own house, the first modern house in Lincoln, MA, his practice grew to include clients largely in neighboring New England. But one notable house lies near Mt. Monadnock in Jaffrey, NH, and another amid a thousand-acre preserve in Thomasville, GA. No matter where built, Hoover’s designs exhibited a satisfying synthesis of the exceptional and the livable, always tailored to a particular client and site. The publication Breaking Ground: Henry B. Hoover, New England Modern Architect (University Press of New England, 2015), which examines all aspects of Hoover’s career, will be available for purchase and signing at the talk.
This event is free, but we request that you bring a donation be brought for the St. Vincent-DePaul Food Pantry in Greenville.
