‘From Scrapbooks to Facebook’ at Laconia Public Library

“Preservation of Personal History from Scrapbooks to Facebook” is the topic of the Laconia Historical and Museum Society’s program, Monday, Nov. 18, at 6:30 p.m. at the Laconia Public Library.

Laurel Briere, of the LHMS staff, will explore “how people not only save amazing scraps, but the creative ways to save them. As trends and technology have changed, so have the ways people share and save their memories.”

Briere is an anthropologist and historian and holds a master’s degree from Plymouth State University. She will give a broad overview of the history and trends of personal preservation from commonplace notebooks to social media, including examples from scrapbooks in the LHMS archive.

The program, in Rotary Hall on the Lower Level of the library, is free and open to the public.
