Library Services Update

The Library may be closed, but your access is still open! Your Librarians are hard at work curating new content and planning virtual programs to sate your intellectual curiosity.

Keep reading for info on this week's newly curated content and updates to existing services. Have questions about these or other services, need a library card, or just need to connect? Don't hesitate to reach out!

Remember that overdue fines will continue to be waived until further notice and that our 3 book drops (2 in the Library parking lot; 1 at the fire state on Naticook Road) are open for returns. Library kits should be returned by calling the library at 603-424-5021 (ext 101 or 102) during our operating hours.

Title of the Week

Circe
by Madeline Miller

"Circe set itself apart for me with its vivid imagery, ruminations on the true purpose of power, and subtle examinations of humanity as a state of being. Miller brilliantly reconstructs the likeness of the Greek gods in a way that is both relatable and truly evocative."
