Gilmanton Corner Library Celebrating National Library Week

GILMANTON — National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA). Libraries across the United States celebrate Library Week typically the second full week each April. During National Library week and throughout April, libraries host special events to highlight the unique role libraries play in changing people's lives.

This year's theme "Lives Change @ Your Library" coincides with the "Purple Caps" program the Gilmanton Corner Library is doing on Saturday mornings that helps bring awareness to child abuse in new infants. The Gilmanton Corner Library will also have free booklets, pencils and bookmarks for the children.

On display is a beautiful model of the library (with curved door) that was made by Paul Levesque, husband of Martha Levesque, a longtime library volunteer.

Hours are Monday and Wednesday 3-5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to noon.
