Coming Soon! Otis Library will host the traveling exhibit “Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank” from January 3 through January 31, 2018 in the Millie and Martin Shapiro Community Room. Making its United States premiere, the new exhibition discusses the life and struggles of Anne Frank from her birth in 1929 to her death in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945. It then jumps forward to the present, telling stories of young people today. Exhibit visitors get to learn about their individual identities and personal challenges, as well as discover how strangers respond to them. This part of the exhibition emphasizes the role of prejudice and how this can lead to exclusion and even discrimination. “Let Me Be Myself” was developed by the Anne Frank House and is sponsored in North America by the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect. This exhibit is made possible by a grant from Chelsea Groton Bank and by The Friends of Otis Library. #annefrank #annefranktravellingexhibition #otislibrary #otislibrarynorwich #annefrankhouse #thediaryofannefrank #holocaust #holocaustremeberanceday #ondisplay

“Our Piece of the Pie” mural now on display in our atrium. Stop in and check it out! Through the creation and installation of a large-scale, youth-designed mobile mural depicting young hands fixing, painting and preserving Norwich’s historic buildings, Our Piece of the Pie’s Eastern CT Youth Center have honored the legacy of history and preserve it for the future.
Completed by sixteen youth at OPP’s Eastern CT Youth Center, the mural’s theme of youth empowerment in the community brings a message of their eagerness to be involved and to re-engage and connect with their larger community. Depicting young hands fixing, painting, and preserving historic buildings in Norwich, the work pays homage to history, the community, and the work that has come before. The youth honor this heritage, seeking to preserve and enhance it and pass on that legacy to the next generation. #ourpieceofthepie #norwich #norwichct #otislibrary #otislibrarynorwich #downtownnorwich #community #youthempowerment

322/365 - We were only planning to pop into the holiday fair at the library for a few minutes, but ended up staying 2+ hours because it was so fun! Super impressed with the dozens of volunteers helping with everything from parking to games to just making everyone smile. This is why I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS.
