Idea to Invention: How to Become a Maker

Thursday, August 10, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


Join Jason Clark to explore 3D Printing, microcontroller programming (Arduino, Raspberry Pi), basic mechanical design, robotics and more.

Depending on interest, potential projects include creating an automatic plant watering unit, a mini robot arm, a line following robot, a ghost detector, or a metal detector. Learn to think like an inventor. For ages 10 and up.

Jason is a lifelong Milford resident with 20 years of experience in prototype design and fabrication.  His latest project is a device that can measure blood sugar without a blood sample!  His projects vary wildly…  from automated bird feeders to temperature measuring robots.  His favorite part of any day is helping someone to the “ah-ha” moment, the point when an idea clicks.

‘State of Addiction’ The NH Opioid Crisis

Wednesday July 12, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:30 PM


The Wadleigh Memorial Library will host local filmmaker Aaron Foss. Foss will be showing clips from his documentary “State of Addiction: The NH Opioid Crisis” and speaking about the opioid epidemic that has plagued New Hampshire and the entire country.

Over the course of the fall of 2016, Foss conducted over thirty-five interviews with addicts and their families, law enforcement, medical professionals, drug counselors, and others who have been on the front lines. He also spoke to NH politicians Jeanne Shaheen, Maggie Hassan, and Kelley Ayotte about what is being done here and in Washington to battle this crisis. Foss is screening the film across the state to help raise awareness and provide information to those in need of help in their battle against addiction. The screening and talk will feature a Q&A session afterwards.

Foss, a native of Salem and current resident of Derry, is a writer and editor by trade and graduated with degrees in both Communications and Creative Writing. His work can be viewed on the Facebook page “New Hampshire Speaks.”
