Join us for Saturday Story Time...

The winter story time program has been very successful at the Byron G. Merill Library. Children have listened to winter-themed stories, made snowflakes and decorated cookies. Our recent focus has been on books by one of our favorite author/illustrators: Jan Brett. Last Saturday the children got to act in their own play as different animals in the story, "The Hat". What could be next? Come and find out on Saturday mornings from 10:30 - 11:00am. You never know what Mrs. Anderson has planned for our fun time together!

Informative Databases with EBSCO

Have you noticed that our library might not have older editions of magazines and newspapers in the library? It doesn’t mean that you can’t find the article you need! Instead of keeping (and storing) hundreds or thousands of magazines on the shelves, the articles are available to you through the New Hampshire statewide subscription to EBSCO and Newsbank.

These websites require a username and password. Please contact the library for your login information.
