Letter Submission

To submit a letter to the editor, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Letters must contain the author's name, hometown (state as well, if not in New Hampshire) and phone number, but the number will not be published. We do not run anonymous letters. Local issues get priority, as do local writers. We encourage writers to keep letters to no more than 400 words, but will accept longer letters to be run on a space-available basis. Editors reserve the right to edit letters for spelling, grammar, punctuation, excessive length and unsuitable content.


Year-Round Library has already raised $10k; join our 400 Club

  • Published in Letters
To the editor,
We are pleased to announce that since a new fund raising goal of $45,000 was established on March 13th in order to keep the Gilmanton Year-Round Library open beyond Nov. 1st over $10,000 has been raised through donations.
One fund raising initiative is the 400 Club. This is an opportunity for 400 people to donate $100. To date 36 people have already signed on. Remember, obligations of membership are simple: promise to inform neighbors and friends about the library and urge them to support the Library as a vital asset to the town.
Another fund raising opportunity is to donate the dollar value your taxes would have been if the library had received town funding. Some supporters have doubled that amount to cover a neighbor who might not be able to afford a donation at this time.
The GYRL board and staff thank all those who have already donated to this important cause. If you still haven't had a chance to contribute, you may send a check made payable to the Gilmanton Year-Round Library, or if you prefer, visit our web site, www.gyrla.org, where you can make a donation through your PayPal account or with your credit card. Donations are tax deductible.
