To The Daily Sun,
In case all of the great folks in Gilmanton are not yet aware of it, the Year-Round Library is one of those places you have to actually visit to understand how cool it is.
As a recent addition to Gilmanton, when we first drove by it, we knew we had to stop in and see what kind of library is in that neat old barn building. Oh, you can check it out at www.gyrla.org, and I encourage you to do that, to see a sample of everything that is available, but there is nothing like a physical visit to really check it out.
Even though we are retired and have no children living here, we see its value to the town and we both volunteer there. I serve on the board and my wife has done a myriad of volunteer activities.
If you are fairly new to Gilmanton, you may not have discovered the Year-Round Library across the street from Gilmanton School. You may have seen a library — or two — because there are three in Gilmanton. All are unique, and all are good. Only the Corners' Library by the Town Hall is town-owned. You ought to go check it out also. The privately owned library in the Iron Works is closed for the winter. Come see it in the spring.
You may also not be aware how important it is that you register and vote at the town election on March 14. Gilmanton offers same-day registration and voting so you can register and vote in one trip. Easy peasie.
(Warrant Article 23 covers partial funding for the Year-Round Library.)
