GILFORD — Many are familiar with Betty the Bookworm, the literacy mascot for Altrusa International of Laconia. Betty has visited many libraries, classrooms, been seen in many parades and appeared at all Altrusa of Laconia events in the last few years. The book BETTY THE BOOKWORM VISITS THE LIBRARY, written by Altrusan Barbara DeAngelis, is the story of Betty's first exciting visit to the library. Many local children own a copy of this book.
On Thursday June 5, Altrusa of Laconia donated Betty to her new home at the Children's Room at the Gilford Public Library where she will now visit with children and lead a less hectic life in her retirement.
