Keith’s highly interactive show will delight everyone with a unique mix of funny, original songs and stories, tongue-twisting poems, oddball characters and on-the-spot cartoon drawing. Keith’s rhythmic piano, skillful drawing and quick wit combine for an upbeat, positive experience with lots of audience participation. It’s a fast- paced ride, so hang on and don’t blink—you might miss something! This free event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Dunbar Free Library and a Kids, Books, and the Arts grant.

The Wizard of Oz
Sunday, July 3 at 4 pm

Join Dorothy in this classic adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Dorothy Gale thinks she is lost forever when a terrifying tornado crashes through Kansas and whisks her far away to the magical Land of Oz. She must follow the yellow brick road to Emerald City and find the wonderfully mysterious Wizard of Oz. With her companions the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion whom she meets on the way, Dorothy embarks on a strange and enchanting adventure to find her way back home. Geared for all ages. This free event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Dunbar Free Library and Grantham “Our Town” Activities.

If you want to request something you DON’T find in our catalog, try searching the NH Union Public Access Catalog or NHU-PAC (link on the left). You can check to see if what you want is available anywhere in other NH libraries. Note that it WILL tell you about UNH, but it WON’T tell you what Dartmouth has. If you can’t find it, send us an  e-mail with the title, author if available, format (book, DVD, CD), publishing date if you know it. If you have the time, tell us how you heard about it. We’ll call you when it’s in or to tell you that we can’t get it for you, usually the former.
