The New Milford Public Library on Main Street in New Milford will offer several programs in the coming weeks.

Author Bob Backlund, a professional wrestling legend, will discuss his life and career experiences, as well as his commitment to exercises of the body and mind Aug. 24 at 6:30 p.m.

He explores these topics in his autobiography “Backlund: From All-American Boy to Professional Wrestling World Champion.”

Local historian Chris Fisher will meet with patrons Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to noon, or by appointment, to record the patron’s history and recollections of New Milford.

The stories will be transcribed and preserved in physical format and digital archives.
