June Events @ NPL

Please join us for a month of educational and entertaining programs for all ages.

On Display at NPL: Eclectricity!

Eclectricity (through June 29th, downstairs in the community room) is a collection of photographs by Natalie Boze and paintings in various media by Becky Cook, both Norwich residents. On display are images from the Upper Valley and around New England. The works encompass nature and man-made structures, either as they are or as filtered by sparks of whimsy and imagination.
