Go team! Adeline Broussan, a doctoral student from UMASS History Department, heads up our team of volunteers as we begin packing and moving the thousands of artifacts currently stored in the collections area below the Damon Education Center. In the next few weeks, the space will be transformed with compact storage units as well as proper racks for keeping our painting collection. Thanks to these improvements, Historic Northampton will have museum-quality storage in a climate-controlled space by the end of the summer. 

This important project was made possible with support from two anonymous donors. A big thank you to them and to todays volunteers--Emma Dempster-Greenbaum, Kiki Smith, Judith Fine (not pictured), Sara Lennox and Rob Weir.

So true! I loved reading to my daughters, my grandsons and my students. My daughters and grandsons would go to bed early because they wanted to have a book read to them. My students didn't want to be absent because they would miss a chapter from a classic book.

Even my sister, who pretended to be mentally disabled because we carry a physical disability...even she had fond memories of being read to. It might have been the only happy thoughts to remain with her through the miserable life she created. Powerful stuff here, this reading business.

Liza Robinson, this reminded me of when Vee was going through her books to give away...

Colleen Carey Luther- for your new venture- back of business card maybe?

So true

Saw that joy today as I read to my Fifth Graders!!
