We had a beautiful day for our Fall Festival on Saturday, October 5th! Thanks to everyone who cooked for the bake sale and to all those who took time from their busy Saturday to attend. Money raised will go towards helping to fund events for the library.

Thank you to Jeanne Menard and her dog, Ditto for coming on July 25th to give us a demonstration of their work. We heard about how not to get lost and see Ditto in action in the backyard of the library. This presentation was part of our Summer Reading Program.
Thanks to a very generous donation from the New Hampshire Astronomical Society, we now have a new telescope that can be checked out (soon)! We join about 80 other libraries in the state that offer this unique item to share.
Keep posted for a Star Gazing event to be held in the near future!
The library staff will try out the telescope and learn exactly how to use it before it can be checked out. Then we can give you the right information for successful star gazing in your own backyard.
Here is a picture of Pete and Gerry Smith who delivered our telescope on July 13th.
Children’s author Rodman Philbrick came to visit the library on May 8th. The 4th grade class walked over from the Newfields Elementary School to hear him speak about his book, Freak the Mighty, a recent class read. They heard about how he dreamed about a writer, how he came to write this story and his experiences when it was made into a movie. The students asked excellent questions! Thank you to Kim Crisp for arranging this event.
Thanks to the families who turned out for our annual Books and Babies event on Saturday, April 13th. Five of our newest residents were honored with a book – each book gets a special book plate and it is added to our collection. Thank you to the Friends of the Library who sponsored this event!
