Pillsbury Free Library News | July 10, 2020 Warner, N.H.
News From Your Library
For some reason, about 60 TDS domain emails bounced our newsletter last week, (and also we forgot to change the date at the top!) so we are going to repeat a few items of last week's news, with updates. Apologies to those who have read them.
If you missed the previous newsletters, you can find them on our website. Check your "social" or "promotions" email folders. It helps to add the newsletter@warner.lib.nh.us address to your contacts.
Library Summer Programs for all ages
