GILMANTON — The Gilmanton Iron Works Library will hold a Book and Bake Sale on Saturday, October 11 from 9:30 to noon. The historic library, located at 10 Elm Street, will host a sale that will offer books, videos, and DVDs, as well as a wide variety of baked goods, sweets, and other treats.
"Book and bake sales are the primary fundraisers for our small library," explains Susannah Chance, president of the Gilmanton Iron Works Library Association. "This year we are hosting a fall sale after receiving multiple requests for one from our patrons."
The Gilmanton Iron Works is a seasonal library and will close for the winter after the sale on October 11. Members and the public are encouraged to visit the library to check out books for winter reading, and to return books that were checked out over the summer.
A public library serving the community since 1916, the Gilmanton Iron Works Library is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A small group of volunteers maintains the building and the library's extensive collection of books and DVDs.

PLYMOUTH — The country's premier ice dancing company, Ice Theatre of New York, will be performing on Sunday, October 26 at 3 p.m. at Hanaway Ice Rink, Plymouth State University.
The event will include a newly commissioned performance called "ICE: Dance, On Golden Pond" and will feature an ensemble of twelve top international and Olympic competitors, including US Men's champion, Ryan Bradley. This is the only performance in Northern New England this season. Ticket prices to the event at the Hanaway Rink at Plymouth State College range from $18 to $28 per person.
Art and culture critics have heralded the work of the non-profit skating company. The New York Times calls Ice Theatre of New York "The best hope for the future simply because they recall what skating has the potential to be: dancing on air." Olympic television viewers are familiar with ice dancing as a sport, but ensemble performances with a modern dance and ballet focus bring the art form to a new level.
This will be a homecoming of sorts for Artistic Director, Douglas Webster, who grew up in the White Mountains. Webster has gone on to become a well-known international skating choreographer. "Bringing Ice Theatre of New York back to Plymouth is a highlight for me," says Webster. "Returning to my roots and sharing with the community my love of ice dancing as both an athletic and artistic endeavor is important to me. I travel all over the world as a skating choreographer but there's no place like my home state and I'm excited to bring a high quality performance to New Hampshire." The Plymouth event features a newly commissioned work called "Flight," a quartet created by Webster to the music of "On Golden Pond."
Webster has also been involved in creating the upcoming outdoor skating rink at Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth. He will the Guest Artistic Director at Puddle Dock Pond this winter.
