Historians and economists often compare the "Gilded Age" (1876 - 1900) to the Nineteen Twenties, and present day-America. This six-part series, which begins on April 18, is led by Don Robb and will explore how the Gilded Age changed America: powerful industrial corporations, a huge influx of immigrants, the growth of great cities, party politics as tense as those of today and the reactions of the American people, rich and poor, to a changing society. The next five lectures are on Thursdays, May 2, 9, 16, 23 & 30 from 1:30-3pm. A collaboration of Memorial Hall Library and Andover Elder Services/The Senior Center at Punchard.

Foster Parenting is a service that allows people to assist needy children during times of crisis. Children come into care almost every single day in the Lawrence, Methuen, Andover and North Andover area. Hear from a foster parent and social worker about how you can make a significant, positive influence in their lives. The Massachusetts Department of Children & Families serves children of all ages — from infants to adolescents — from every community — who need a home. You can be single, married, partnered, divorced, or widowed. You can rent or own a home. Time spent with you in a stable and secure environment gives a child a chance to heal. The rewards of providing daily care, guidance and acceptance to a child are immeasurable. Every Parent Makes a Difference. Presented by Massachusetts DCF and Memorial Hall Library.
