1. Announcements and Events
    A. Fogler Film Series
    B. Maine Towns During the Great Depression

A. The Fogler Film Series continues with Power and Control: Domestic Violence in America on October 25th, at 5:30 p.m. with a discussion facilitated by Carey Nason, Coordinator of the Safe Campus Project. The film will be shown in the Collaborative Media Lab classroom on the first floor of Fogler.

B. Economic downturn. Property being seized. Available revenue declining. Sound familiar? These headlines from the Great Depression are eerily similar to what we are hearing today. If you believe as Pearl Buck states, that “if you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday,” we invite you to join us in the Special Collections department at Fogler Library on Thursday, October 27th at 3:00 p.m. when Richard Hollinger, head of Special Collections, will give a presentation entitled, “Maine Towns During the Great Depression.” This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. "Maine Towns During the Great Depression" is sponsored by the Fogler Library Friends. For more information contact Gretchen Gfeller on FirstClass or call 581-1696.
