To The Daily Sun,
The old barn exterior provides a mild disguise, but upon entering you instantly see how beautiful your Gilmanton Year-Round Library really is, spacious, inviting, and comfortable — it is everything you could want in a community space. A welcoming, knowledgeable, and friendly staff greets you as you pass the latest best sellers on your way to the cozy and quiet reading nook, which is stocked with current newspapers and magazines, and comfortable chairs of course, so you can catch up on current events or settle in with a great book.
Across the central meeting area, next to the easy to navigate book stacks, are two rows of private computer stations hooked to the internet for anyone to use. The Children's Room is very impressive, filled with books, puzzles, games, and events, almost anything a child would enjoy, and a dedicated children's librarian to keep the joy of learning flowing through our next generation. Our teenagers are not forgotten, they have an area all their own on the second level where they can meet to play games, do art, or just relax with friends.
Through the hard work and generosity of many, our community has been given this wondrous building and grounds, truly one of the jewels in the crown of the small town we call home. A jewel that serves all of our citizens from the youngest to the oldest in a multitude of meaningful ways.
Please come and enjoy the Gilmanton Year Round Library. It is here for you. Please support your library on March 14.
