We miss you!

The library staff and I continue to work hard to expand our virtual services, and loving our team as we do, we strive to collaborate online.  One thing comes across in every online meeting. We miss you!
With every new Library-to-Go Artist Afternoon, Storytime, or Mad Scientist project created, every new digital resource, every new idea, someone on staff connects it to someone in the community. "Oh, [Your name]  will love this!"   It is the same reaction I have when ordering books, when one of your faces pops into my mind and I think, "[Your name] will definitely want to read this."

We had our first Zoom online Silly Slipper Storytime this week, and it was so good to see you in real time, and sing and share stories together!

Please know we are thinking of you and your families, even as I have to repeat: Per our policy guidelines, the library will remain closed until further notice.

Stay home. Be well. We hope to see you soon.

Please feel free to contact me any time at
Kind regards, Julie M. Perrin, Library Director - a.k.a. Ms. Julie

Free Seeds to Plant Your Victory Garden

We are so sad not to be open for you to select your free garden seeds...  Library-to-Go! to the Rescue!
Thanks to grants from Seed Savers Exchange, UNH Cooperative Extension, and generous donors, we are able to provide you with free variety packs of seeds to plant your vegetable garden this year, mailed directly to your home. (A fabulous resident is paying all the postage!)
Fill out this secure form and we will send you your seeds!

Due to the volume of seeds, we can't take specific requests but we promise a great variety of popular vegetables and herbs, and even flowers so you can fight the war on COVID-19 with healthy food, grown in your own yard.
Be well!

Teleworking to make the magic

Some of the library team at home, making the magic of Library-to-Go!

Library-to-Go is growing!

We have added more experiments, more art projects, bullet journaling, new playlists, and even more videos of your funny librarians.
Watch Ms. Andrea make play-dough, Ms. Julie read to her chickens, and Ms. Eileen sing our favorite fingerplays!  Learn new art from Ms. Erin and thrilling science fun with Ms. Courtney.  The list keeps growing.
Visit the Library-to-Go menu of our website so that you can enjoy fun activities with us during our closure.
Click the photo to watch Ms. Julie and Ms. Andrea read The Fox and the Goat.

Still...No Book Drop, Please

Thank you!   Since asking that you hold onto your items until we reopen, we have had success in keeping the book drop free for our mail and deliveries while closed.  It has been so helpful, and we really appreciate your continued cooperation.
All due dates have now been changed to May 18th.
Be well!
