The Library Will be Closed Labor Day, Monday, September 5
Enjoy the long summer weekend!
Summer Reading 2016 Is in the Record Book!
Thanks for a great June, July, and August of reading and fun!
This summer, 157 adults, teens, and children signed up for our reading program. By signing up, each participant received a raffle ticket--red for adults, blue for children--that they could use for a chance to win one of 25 passes, gift cards, and coupons to places as varied as Canobie Lake, Rochester Opera House, and Squam Lake Science Center. Drawings were held at the closing event on August 3 and many happy readers went home with the prize of their choice. Thanks again!
Evening Book Group Returns September 12, 7:00 pm
Can you recommend a good book to read in the upcoming months?
We'd also love to hear what you enjoyed reading this summer. This first meeting is a great time for newcomers to jump in and have a say in the direction the group takes this year. Please join us!
