All eras are welcome they don’t have to be recent if you know the date please include it .  Then, the summer program crew will put together a “Soundtrack of Sutton” inspired by the images.  If you have a song that you think goes with your image please include the title and artist with your photo or email to librarian@sutton-nh.org.
Music in the collection  Throughout the summer there will be highlighted books, dvds and activities around the Libraries Rock theme… come see what sparks your interest!
