News from Deborah: September 2019

Happy September, everyone! Our regular programs will be starting up again this month, and we look forward to seeing many of you again.

  • Story Hour will be held regularly starting on September 10th. The program is held on Tuesdays at 10:30am. We welcome children from birth to five, parents, grandparents, guardians, and child care providers - and visitors! Our program consists of a circle, a welcoming song, rhymes, songs, and a story or two. Circle time is followed by a simple craft generally related to the stories. Crafts are kept simple, age appropriate, fun and open ended - with a focus on the process rather than a finished product. Kids love to mess around - and it's great to see what they can create! It can also be a place for adults to connect around kid issues and to also enjoy some adult company.
  • Our Book Group will begin to meet regularly again. This month we will meet on September 12 and we'll be discussing The Leavers by Lisa Ko. We have extra copies if you would like to join us.
  • Historical Society will be meeting at 7pm on September 11, after an August break for Field Days.
  • Game Night will continue to meet - with a seemingly ever expanding group of participants! If you would like to try out this (generally) non-competitive, fun board game group their next meeting will be on September 18th at 6:30.

As I mentioned in our last newsletter, we are really pleased to be hosting a writing/art class for 13 year olds.

Abigail Diehl-Noble, a published author and experienced teacher, will be meeting with interested kids on Tuesday, September 17, from 4 - 5pm. We plan to start with this time at first, but are open to other days and times of the week to fit the interest. Please let me know if you, or someone you know, loves to write. This could be exactly what they are looking for!

Please remember that our courier service makes it very easy to receive books that we don't own, so request away! (I'm happy to say that many of you are already using this service!)

Kanopy launched in December 2018 for NHCL patrons!

The library has a lot of new materials. New DVDs and many new books.

Remember, if you are looking for something we don’t have, I will be very happy to Inter-Library loan or purchase. Just ask!
