July art exhibit by YEAAH

YEAAH stands for Youth for Earth Activism through Art with Hope. This energetic youth group is displaying their original artwork throughout the month of July at the Conway Public Library. The mission of these young artists is to bring “together youth who are passionate about art and activism with the hope of drawing awareness to the changes in our world.” Emma Whipple spokesperson for YEAAH succinctly expressed the goal of the organization as “giving youth a voice.” Represented in the exhibit are Clara Hodges, Maddi Doucette, Brittany Coleman, Silus Berrier, and Emma Whipple McKie. You can contact YEAAH at yeaahcommunity@yahoo.com. Stop by the library’s Ham Community Room throughout July to see the dynamic expression of these concerned young artists. What a Hoot! Who’s active in the forests while we’re sleeping? Owls, of course. Join the staff of Tin Mountain Conservation Center to learn about New Hampshire owl species, owl adaptations, and vocalizations. Every Wednesday, the Conway Public Library offers fun, free and educational programming for age 4 and older. Next Wednesday, July 13, it’s all about owls with Nora Dufilho, educator at the Center. While there will be no live animals, attendees will see specimens of common owl

species found in our area and even get an opportunity to learn their calls. It will be a hoot.

Open mic night On the second Monday of each month (except in October) the Conway Public Library offers an Open Mic Night for poets, writers, musicians and storytellers of all ages. The first hour is open floor. Just sign up for your time slot when you arrive. Then after a break for refreshments, a featured artist (or two) takes the floor.
