It is Happening at the Library

It has been a busy week as we have been moving books around. The good news for mystery/suspense lovers is that you will have a whole new bookcase of your favorite titles displayed prominently. Let us know what you think of the new arrangement.

Our 'Pajama Party' was a big success. We read 'Sleep Bear Sleep', 'My Shadow' by Robert Louis Stevenson, and 'Pajama Time' by Sandra Boynton. We liked 'Pajama Time' so much we actually read it twice! After cookies and milk everyone scooted home to bed. We are planning another PJ Party so watch for the date.

Did you know that you can access the Concord Monitor and the Manchester Union Leader here at the library or at home? This is a service provided by the NH State Library. Interested in using this service? Let us know.

Upcoming Events: The Rumney Knitters will meet on Wednesday, June 9th at 2 here at the library - Come join us!

The Byron G Merrill Library offers books, magazines, dvds, videos, downloadable audio books, interlibrary loan, and an internet-based language program. Located at 10 Buffalo Road, the library is open on Wednesdays 2-8, Thursdays 10-12 and 2-5, and Saturdays 10-12.

Disturbed by your electrical bill??? You are welcome to borrow a 'Cut the Carbon' kit from the library. The kit includes a 'Kill a Watt Energy Detector' that can be plugged into any household appliance and show how much energy is being used, instructions, and a worksheet to calculate energy costs. Energy efficiency advice and tips are included in a booklet you can keep.

Interested in downloading audio books onto your computer, ipod, or mp3 player??? We will be explaining how this all works on Wednesday, May 26th at 7:15.
