School has started!

The Byron G. Merrill Library sends well-wishes to all Rumney students as they head back to school. Whether looking for a special book for school or doing online research on one of the computers we can help students during our evening and Saturday hours.

The library was packed to the gills on Wednesday, August 10 as a wrap-up party for the summer tic-tac-toe reading program was held. Seventeen children plus parents were in attendance. A short program was held outside in the shade of the maple trees just as the rain clouds cleared. The time consisted of a song, a story of what happens when Farmer Brown goes on vacation, a game of duck, duck, goose, awards and the favorite of all - ice cream! A fun time was had by all. The tic-tac-toe program helped introduce a variety of books to children over the summer and helped prepare them for school as well.

As cooler weather comes an invitation goes out to local knitters to join us for our knitting club held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 2pm. If you are unable to attend you may still help us with our special project of knitting hats for the children of Russell Elementary School. Skeins of yarn and a pattern is available at the library if you would like to help with our project.

On August 30 and 31, 2011 The Library of Congress Gateway to Knowledge Travelling Exhibition will be at the New Hampshire State House (107 North Main Street, Concord, NH) and will be open for visitors from 10am-6pm each day.

The exhibition outlines the history of the Library of Congress, Thomas Jefferson's role in re-establishing the Library after the burning of the U.S. Capitol in 1814, and his classification system of Memory, Reason, and Imagination. These three categories define the organization of the content inside the exhibition.

The visit is being co-hosted by the New Hampshire State Library and Concord Public Library.
