Our New Building's First Art Exhibit!
Paintings by Soo Rye Yoo on Display this Summer
We are pleased to exhibit the work of Soo Rye Yoo this summer. Originally from Seoul, South Korea, Soo clearly loves the act of exploration in her artwork. As Art New England described, she moves easily "between oil and acrylic paint; bold cadmium orange and red, deep cerulean blue. One can imagine Yoo in her studio, dancing with her brushes and paint, enjoying every energetic moment of creation."

We Got a Grant...
And Madbury will have a preschool playground!
After many months of planning, we are excited to announce that the library has been awarded a grant for just over $14,000, to install a natural playground outside the Children's Room. The funds are part of the American Rescue Act Plan (ARPA) and the award comes from the Institute for Museum and Library Services and the NH State Library, The grant funds will be combined with other money raised--especially Lorraine Morong memorial funds--to create a story time circle near the building and a full outdoor play and learning space.
