Find Pete the Dragon
Pete the Dragon (who looks a LOT like our Technology Trainer, Pete) has been spotted flying around the Pymatuning Lake area. While we are not sure how his tiny pink wings can carry him, several local businesses assure us he has visited them. Follow the clues posted each week and find Pete’s poster. Scan the QR Code and enter to win gift certificates to local businesses and more. (We can’t tell you what the prizes are because then you will know where Pete is … so you’ll just have to wait!) Eight winners in total. Winners must be able to pick-up their prize at the Andover Public Library by September 18, 2020. Read more…

Beginning Wednesday, August 12, 2020 the Andover Public Library will host a new popup exhibition from the National Archives, Rightfully Hers, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Rightfully Hers contains simple messages exploring the history of the ratification of the 19th amendment, women’s voting rights before and after the 19th, and its impact today. Despite decades of marches, petitions, and public debate to enshrine a woman’s right to vote in the constitution, the 19th Amendment – while an enormous milestone – did not grant voting rights for all. The challenges of its passage reverberate to the ongoing fight for gender equity today. This exhibit runs through October 13, 2020 .
Rightfully Hers co-curator Jennifer N. Johnson states:
“The ratification of the 19th Amendment was a landmark moment in American history that dramatically changed the electorate, and although it enshrined in the U.S. Constitution fuller citizenship for women many remained unable to vote.”
Rightfully Hers is organized by the National Archives and Records Administration. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the National Archives has launched a nationwide initiative and major exhibition that explores the generations-long fight for universal woman suffrage. The exhibition is presented in part by the Women’s
Suffrage Centennial Commission and the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Unilever, Pivotal Ventures, Carl M. Freeman Foundation in honor of Virginia Allen Freeman, AARP, and Denise Gwyn Ferguson.
