Funding will enable the Avon Historical Society (AHS), Avon Free Public Library (AFPL) and Avon Senior Center (ASC) to partner to offer a series of programs, in two phases, from November 2019-November 2020 entitled DEEDS NOT WORDS: 100 Years of the Vote for Women. This series will run from November 2019 through November 2020 and focus on events that contributed to the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It will include a detailed overview of the 75-year struggle that led to the largest reform movement in United States history.
Avon Free Public Library and Avon Historical Society partner to offer a series of five programs in the summer, June 2018 to August 2018. The series uses Original Discontents, a compilation of primary documents by Dr. Richard Buel, as assigned text for patrons.
