Notes from the Librarian


HOURS ADJUSTMENT!: This Friday, October 6, is the first Friday we will open early at 8:30 a.m.  If you’ve finished with the school drop-off, have books to return, or want a movie for the weekend but only want to be downtown once this morning, drop on in, we’ll be open at 8:30 a.m. and have your cup of coffee with us!

ALSO related to hours:  WE ARE OPEN COLUMBUS DAY, 9 am – 7:30 p.m. as normal.

First Friday Movies!!: This is ALSO the first First Friday Movie night:  We’re showing Wonder Woman, starting at 6:30 p.m.  There will be popcorn!

E Resource Changes:  Problems with Weiss Financial Ratings Series or Overdrive (New Hampshire Downloadable Books)?  Each has had some changes.  If you’ve been using Weiss Financial ratings from home to check on stocks, bonds, mutual funds etc. and you established your own login: NO PROBLEM.  But if you were just getting in more or less as guest, now it wants you to put in your library card number, and that is going to have the same prefix that NHDB does.  Ask us if you’re not sure what that is.  OVERDRIVE USERS:  if you’ve downloaded the overdrive APP on your smartphone/tablet you may run into problems.  Download the LIBBY (Overdrive) app instead and all your problems will magically disappear.  I have it on GREAT authority, what’s more I saw it work today in the library!

The Book to Movie discussion group (no, I’m not putting 3 exclamation marks):  Our next pick is Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café by Fannie Flagg.  Book discussion November 13, Movie showing November 16, both at 6:30 p.m.

Art Exhibit:  The Artists in the Barn 40 + pieces are only going to be here until the end of this month.  Don’t miss out!

Telescope:  If you’ve had the training, you can borrow the telescope, one week circulation.  If you need the training, it takes about 15 minutes so give us a heads up if you want to borrow the telescope and you haven’t already had the training so we can make sure we’ve got the time.  We’re going to have an astronomy program November 19, more info on the website,

Have you noticed the Little Free Library at Rum Brook Plaza?  Take a book, leave a book, or just take a book if you don’t have one to leave and leave one, next time.  There are books for a variety of interests and age groups.
