That reminds me of a story... Join us for an evening with Rebecca Rule at the Rumney Historical Museum on Monday, October 6 at 7:00pm. NH author Rebecca Rule has made it her mission over the last 20 years to collect stories of New Hampshire, especially those that reflect what’s special about this rocky old place. She’ll tell some of those stories – her favorites are the funny ones – and invite audience members to contribute a few stories of their own. This will be a fun, free community event with refreshments (pies, lots of homemade pies!) and time to socialize with your neighbors. And did we mention, pies?!

Have you applied for (or renewed) your library card?? September is ‘Sign Up for a Library Card’ and we are encouraging our fellow townspeople to do just that! Lorrie Eaton has put together a lovely drawing to entice you to come in... The Common Café has provided a gift certificate for coffee and a muffin and Rumney Rocks Bistro has donated a gift certificate for one of their desserts... we love our local eateries! Now it is up to you to come in and enter. And, as a bonus, you can use all the services our library offers.... the latest in bestselling novels, downloadable eBooks, dvds and the list goes on and on...

Every parent wants their child to succeed, and one of the simplest ways you can ensure your child’s academic success is by making a quick trip to the library. September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Byron G Merrill Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most import school supply of all – a free library card.

Rumney resident Kathy Wallace is leading the effort to raise funds for some much needed changes at the Byron G Merrill Library. Our beautiful library, given to the town in 1904, has served us well but now we want to make our library services available to all of our townspeople with the addition of a handicapped access.

The 4th of July has come and gone which means we are seriously into our Summer Reading Program. This individualized program is in full swing with boys and girls deciding their summer goals, selecting from our huge assortment of great books, and logging their success. There is still time to join so we invite all young people, particularly going into grades 2 – 8, to stop in and register. Miss G (one of our favorite readers) gave Cress by Marissa Meyer 5 out of 5 stars...Cress is the third volume in the Lunar Chronicles which is based on some of our favorite fairy tales. Stop by and check out this series and see our book reviews.
