Home Stretch

It's the home stretch with just three weeks left of our Summer Learning program.  Over 200 of your friends and neighbors have joined us for a truly fabulous summer.  We have never witnessed such a high level of enthusiasm as we have this year.
Thank you for all the support and kind words of appreciation.  You make our days special.
Be well.  Be safe.  Be kind.
Please feel free to contact me any time at
Kind regards,

Cyber Safety: How to Stay Connected & Protected

Wednesday, August 4 at 10:30 am, presented by AARP, Hybrid program
Online fraud is a serious and growing threat. The AARP NH Speakers Bureau program on Cyber Safety will arm you with the tools you need to spot and avoid online fraud and scams to protect yourself and your family. In this 45-minute session, you’ll learn six steps you can take to keep your information personal and secure when online.

This hybrid event will take place via Zoom for our presenters. Attendees may attend alone at home via Zoom or as part of a group at the library, with the technology provided as an in-person program, in limited numbers (masks required).  Registration required. Please indicate your preference to be online at home or as part of the group at the library.
Ms. Andrea headed to the Farmer's Market for our Book Bike Debut!
Many thanks to the Institute of Museum & Library Services, the New Hampshire State Library and the Community Center of Jaffrey for the grant funding for our new Library Book Bike!
What’s a Library Book Bike?  The Book Bike is like a giant tricycle, complete with a place to transport books for all ages, STEAM kits (the library’s self-directed kits that support STEAM education), and even wi-fi to outreach locations.  It’s a mini-bookmobile, quite literally powered by library staff.  Read more.
A BIG thank you to author/illustrator, Marty Kelley and the Children's Literacy Foundation for a fun storytelling event and book giveaway on the library lawn.  Each child was able to choose two free books to keep to build their home libraries, and Marty kept us laughing for a truly joyful morning.
Celebrate the Home Stretch of Summer Learning with free ice cream this Friday afternoon at 2 pm, generously donated by Hayward's Ice Cream of Milford and the Friends of the Jaffrey Library.
Just like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, you need to bring your Golden Ticket (from your Summer Learning registration folder) to get your free cone.
If you have lost your Golden Ticket, do not despair!  Just see Ms. Julie or Ms. Andrea.
Join our finale hybrid event with one of our favorite authors, Matthew McElligott on Friday, August 6 at 2 pm!
Matt will be on Zoom, but we will log in together at the library or you can Zoom from home.  Either way, we will all be together for an interactive event with the author who inspired your Mad Scientist Librarians!
In addition, Matt gave us brand new signed copies of his books for all of his Jaffrey friends to build your home libraries!
Registration is required.

Friends of the Library Book Donation Drop-off

Saturday, July 31 - 10 am - Noon ONLY on the Library Lawn
Inside book sales organized by The Friends of the Jaffrey Library are back in business and doing well. Volunteers refresh the shelves on the main floor and lower level frequently; there are books for all ages. The Friends need to replenish the stock, but not be overwhelmed with books and disposal problems.

On Saturday, July 31 at 10 am - Noon, the Friends will hold a two-hour book donation event on the Library lawn. People can bring up to 10 books in good condition to the tables where volunteers will screen them for condition and subject matter that sell well in their book sales.

The Friends request the following types of books:
Hardback/paperback fiction and nonfiction, recent novels, mysteries, historical fiction, “good” beach reads, memoirs, and Children’s books

They cannot accept:  Moldy or damaged books (underlined, stains, torn pages), magazines, encyclopedias, textbooks, travel guides, medical and financial advice, and computer books.

Please note that the library staff will not accept donations at the desk, and books may not be left on our doorstep.
The Farmer's Market was a great location to explore the world with our microscopes.
We hope to see you there on Friday afternoons!
