Old Man Winter hasn’t really reared his ugly head just yet, at worst we’ve had some cold nights. We’re thankful the snow hasn’t piled up and closed us out too much, we’ve got too much excitement going on! New books keep coming in and keep our shelves well stocked. Looking for the hottest new release? Ask about becoming a book buddy for your favorite author! Want to get a little one hooked on reading? Come in and grab a PLA Children’s Literacy Calendar for 2021. It brings a new literacy activity to share with a young reader for each day to learn together.

Have a teen or tween in the house? Tip them off to the ongoing “Snap Your Snacks” events going on with the teen and childrens room. Teens and tweens can tag @GPLhayden on TikTok or @gilfordpubliclibrary on Instagram and share their own 60-second cooking/food video for a chance to be featured on the Gilford Library Instagram page as well as win a prize! Entries for that contest will be accepted through the end of the month. We hope all is well and you’re staying warm!
