Join us for our next monthly installment of our new Members Event, From the Vault. This month we will be exploring the history of medicine in Stonington. Come to the Woolworth Library anytime between 6 and 7pm on Friday, September 17th and explore artifacts, photographs and archives. This is a please touch event, and we'd love to show you our collections that are rarely displayed for the public. Thumb through Dr. George Stanton's record of births and deaths, in which he makes not so polite notes about the people of Stonington. Handle small glass bottles containing various medicinal powders and liquids from a 19th century Medicine Chest. Puzzle out the bizarre wire system in the Electrotherapy Machine. There's so much to learn and explore, we hope to see you there!
