Librarian's Corner

One of the perks of living in the Village is being able to listen to the brook that runs from the falls over the Mill Pond dam down to Loon Lake. You can hear it well from the Library’s backyard, and even get a glimpse of it when the foliage isn’t too thick. On quiet days, you can even hear it from inside the Library.


No Rush

While we encourage everyone to zip down to the Library whenever possible, we would ask that you not do so too quickly! With school back in session, fall activities taking place, and folks out walking, please be mindful of your speed as you drive through the village.

Preschool Storytime

Join us every Wednesday at 10am for Preschool Storytime! Christian will be leading an hour of stories, songs, activities, and crafts for children ages 2-5 and their caregivers. You can email Christian for more information.

Wonders of Water

The Green Mountain Conservation Group's annual "Wonders of Water" Community Art Exhibition will be making a stop in Freedom this year! The project explores "the myriad ways that water influences our lives and celebrates the beauty of water in the world around us" through art. You can check out this year's banner of art in the Library's backyard, which overlooks the brook that travels from the mill pond to Loon Lake, through September 28th. If you miss it at the Library, the banner will be displayed at other local libraries as well!

Indigenous Peoples and Artifacts of Ossipee Valley

Freedom Historical Society's fascinating "show and tell" September program, "Indigenous Peoples and Artifacts of Ossipee River Valley," will be presented by Kim White Feather at Freedom Town Hall on Wednesday, September 21st at 7pm. The program is free and open to the public.

This is a great opportunity to explore New England's indigenous tribes before the One Book One Valley author talk on October 27th.

One Book One Valley

The 2022 One Book One Valley selection is Night of the Living Rez, by Morgan Talty. Copies are available at the Library. The author talk for this year's selection will be on Thursday, October 27 at 7pm, at the Majestic Theater in Conway. The event will also be live-streamed.
