We have a new and improved outdoor book drop.  It is located at our main entrance.  No longer will you have to contend with dripping rain or snow and ice falling from the roof.  Plus we bought it used at a huge savings.  Enjoy!

Making room for all your new stuff??  Think of the Library if you have board games looking for a new home.  We can always use board games in good condition to add to our collection in our kids area.
Happy Birthday to our DVD collection!!  It’s 7 years old and contains over 1,270 titles.  It’s sure to have something you’ll like!

We are rearranging our book collection upstairs.  This work in progress will eventually give us more room for our fiction section.  Come play the fun game we’re calling – Find the Science Fiction section!

We are the proud owners of a new to us Wii (purchased with donations).  Look for Wii Wednesdays and other programs in the coming months.

Food for Fines @ the Library from January 17-31.  One less bill for you PLUS you’re helping out those in need via Helping Hands.  1 donated item = $1  Donate a food item and have a dollar taken off your fines.  You can do this for up to $5 worth of fines.  Only good for fines, not for lost or damaged items.  Per the rules of the NH Food Bank, we are unable to accept open packages, homemade items, perishable foods, or items with expired dates.

Thank you so VERY much to everyone who picks up my outdoor sign when it gets blown over!!

The Summer Reading Program was excellent - plenty of adults and kids participated, and Norman the Magician was a huge hit.  This year we didn’t win the Battle of the Libraries, but we were invited to Marlborough’s party which was a lot of fun.  Stay tuned because we’re going to do something new and different next Summer!

We had tons of people attend the Ice Cream Social.  Thanks to the Walpole Creamery for the chocolate ice cream, the Minute Mart (Frank is one of the nicest people, ever!) for the ice and the cash donations from patrons that made the event possible.  If you missed it, don’t worry we’ll do it again next year.
