GILMANTON — Gilmanton residents and visitors once again have the chance to enjoy tasty treats and a good read when the Gilmanton Iron Works Library hosts its second Book and Bake sale on Saturday, August 3, from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
"These events are always an important part of our fundraising efforts," explained Susannah Chance, president of the Gilmanton Iron Works Library Association. "People can buy great homemade treats donated by the Library's volunteers and supporters, as well as books, videos, and DVDs."
"The Library appreciates the community's support," Chance continued, "and wants to acknowledge a special donation received this year in memory of Lura M. McClary. Her family donated a wonderful selection of non-fiction books reflecting the interests of Mrs. McClary and we thank them for their generosity."
The McClary gift includes National Geographic's Bird Watcher's Bible; The Complete Birds of North America; Gardener to Gardener Almanac and Pest-Control Primer for Organic Gardening; The Vegetable Gardener's Bible; All New Square Foot Gardening Cookbook; The American Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Perennials, and others dedicated to birding and gardening.
"One of my favorites," Chance said, "is a comprehensive book of classic farm tractors. The McClary family has provided us with beautiful books that we can enjoy with each season."
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.

ALTON — The Gilman Library will be hosting an Oscar Night at the movies on Friday, August 2 at 7 p.m.
The featured presentation is "Double Indemnity." Produced in 1944, the film stars Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck. Walter Neff, an insurance agent, and Phyllis Dietrichson, a greedy blonde bombshell, plot to bump off Phyllis' husband and collect the premiums. Leaving behind the standard New York setting of lower class crime, this definitive film-noir of the 40's takes place in a California of shady streets, supermarkets and stucco houses.
The film is black and white and not rated. Admission is free. Refreshments will be served. Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
For more information please contact the library at 875-2550 or click on "What's Happening" at www.alton.nh.gov/Library.asp.
