Lancaster native Peter Christoph will lead us on a photographic journey through 5 climate zones from tropical rain forest to arctic conditions in his quest to reach the summit of 19,340 foot high Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa, and the highest free-standing mountain in the world.  Peter provides commentary throughout the entire presentation, and includes behind-the-scenes photos of how he trained for his adventure.

February Exhibit

French printmaker, photographer and writer Dominique Lecomte will show linocuts and woodcuts at the library during the month of February.  His work will fill both the first floor gallery and the glass cases in the entry and exit lobbies.  Mr. Lecompte is a Medford resident.  You can see more of his wonderful work at www.lecomtedominique.com.
