Our Holiday Hours
We will be CLOSED December 25 & January 1
Open normal hours except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day.  Come see us during the holidays!
New Furniture for the Children's Room!
Thanks to a generous grant from Madbury's Wentworth Family Trust, we have just purchased several new browsing units for picture books and board books.  These are squeezed into our current space but will be perfect in the more spacious room planned for our new library.  Stop in and take a look!

A Special Art Exhibit for December
The Road Not Taken: Artistic Interpretations of the Poetry of Robert Frost
This exhibit, which features three Derry-area artists--Ingeborg Seaboyer, Judy Krassowski, and Corinne Dodge-- contains personal interpretations of Frost's poems.  Images in pen and ink, watercolor, acrylics, and oils accompany selected verses that were the source of inspiration.  

Daytime Book Group
Next meeting is Monday, December 18, 3:00
The group will read Anthony Doerr's The Shell Collector.  This collection of short stories is from the acclaimed author of All the Light You Cannot See.
Evening Book Group
Monday, January 8, 7:00 PM
Join us Monday, January 8, to discuss The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore, which has been called "a riveting historical novel that is part legal thriller, part techno-suspense."  Set in Gilded Age New York, the main characters include Edison, Tesla, and Westinghouse and their clash over the invention of the light bulb.
MPL Has Received a CLiF Grant
New books have arrived!
We have received a CLiF Rural Library grant for the 2017-2018 school year.  CLiF, the Children's Literacy Foundation, seeks to create a culture of literacy in the communities it serves and encourage everyone to read for pleasure.   Our new books ($2,000 worth!) are now on display in the Children's Room.  We hope you'll come in and take a look!
