Learn about Teddy Roosevelt during our new Presidents of the US Series

Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt

Our resident historian Dr. John Foster has guided us through the major battles and leaders of World War II.

Now he’s starting a series that will focus on the US Presidents of the 20th Century. It begins with Rough Rider and conservationist Theodore Roosevelt.

Foster—who, in addition to being a librarian, has a doctorate degree in history—will discuss one of our country’s most fascinating presidents at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 19, at our Main Branch.

The talk is free and open to all. You can register to attend online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247.

If you’re interested in history, Foster will also discuss the Easter Rising of 1916 at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 21,  at the Concord Township Community Center—7671 Auburn Road in Concord Township.

On Easter Monday, April 24, 1916, a group of Irish patriots staged a rebellion against British rule in Ireland. Although it failed, the Easter Rising opened the door to Irish independence within a decade. Learn about the rebels and their reasons during Foster’s lecture.

The Easter Rising talk is also free to attend. To register, call Suzy Cobb at (440) 639-4650.
