Join us for a special recording from Kevin Wood, a professional Abraham Lincoln presenter, for his hour-long program A New Birth of Freedom, available for viewing on the library’s website and Facebook page, debuting Wednesday, February 10 at 4 pm and available for viewing till Wednesday, February 17.

A New Birth of Freedom will be a first-hand account from Abraham Lincoln himself of the United States from 1776 to the end of the Civil War in 1865. This period was a remarkable time for our young nation;  a time of exciting new ideas, growth and tremendous change. Yet at the same time, the period experienced great conflict and an uncertain future for the nation. This would all lead to twelve turbulent years (1854-1865), which almost destroyed our nation, but ultimately resulted in a “new birth of freedom.” Mr. Lincoln will also quote from his best-known speeches and writings, and share his own inspiring story of how he rose from a humble background to the highest office in the land through self-study, hard work, ambition, and a strong moral character.

Kevin Wood, currently of Oak Park, Illinois, has been portraying Mr. Lincoln since 2000. He has made over 1,198 appearances in 26 states and 2 foreign countries. He has appeared at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and in Washington DC. This will be his first time presenting to an audience in Oklahoma.

When you look around your home, how does it make you feel? If you answered “stressed” or “overwhelmed,” maybe you need to rethink how your home is organized. Janet Hardy, a professional organizer, will cover the basics of home organization, common problems, and how order can provide mental clarity in her program New Year, New Organized Spaces on January 11, 6 pm. Her program will be a Facebook Live event on the Library’s Facebook page.

From an early age, Hardy loved to organize. She discovered how order “brings me joy and allows me to focus on things that really matter in life.” Her nonjudgmental approach to organizing is to “help you create a contained space, bringing simplicity to your life so you can focus on more important things.”

She lives in Bartlesville with her husband and two toddlers, and works full time in addition to her professional organizing business Containing Spaces.
