Baby-Toddler Storytime Online Sign Up:
The Baby-Toddler Story Time will continue this summer, outdoors, behind the Library. Please sign up in advance. This program is designed for newborns and toddlers through age 3. Tuesdays from 10:30 – 11 AM and will run from June 22nd through August 3rd.
Teen Book Boxes Sign Up:
New this summer! Thanks to a Summer Learning Grant from the NH State Library, we are excited to announce Teen Book Boxes! This program is based on the many “subscription boxes” available today, except that it is 100% free! These boxes will be geared toward our busy teen patrons (ages 12+) and will contain 1-2 library books chosen especially for them, as well as a few fun treats and other surprises. Boxes will be available for pickup on June 16, July 7, and August 4. Register once for all three dates. Patrons are welcome to sign up at any time this summer, but the registration form MUST be filled out at least one week prior to the above dates in order to allow time to fill the boxes! Return the book(s) and box to the Library when you are finished with them. The other surprises are yours to keep!
*Funding for the NH State Library Summer Learning Grant is provided by the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation and funds administered by the NH State Library and provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
