Read to a DOG? Not just any dog….

Certified Therapy Pets are a wonderful way to encourage reluctant readers and children having difficulties with reading to become more confident in their ability to read.

For those children who cannot yet read on their own, parents & caregivers are invited to read with their children. In order to guarantee your spot, you must register for each session.

Registered children should arrive during the advertised time span and will read to the dog of their choice for approximately 15-20 mins.

Check our online calendar for upcoming dates & times.

Our selection for discussion this month is Amoskeag: Life and Work in an American Factory City by Tamara Haraven and Randolph Langenbach.

First published in 1978, this classic book, through vivid oral histories and historic photographs, documents the social and cultural impact of the industry during America’s rise as a manufacturing power. For nearly a century, the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company was chief architect of the social, ethnic, and economic existence of Manchester, New Hampshire. In the early 1900s, it was the largest textile mill in the world, employing 17,000; its red brick facade stretched for nearly a mile along the Merrimack River and its payroll drew immigrants by the thousands.

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Newcomers always welcome.

Welcome to Frost Heaves with Fred Marple

Wednesday August 26, 2015
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


Fred Marple, the Garrison Keillor of New Hampshire, takes his readers on a delightful romp through the imaginary but oh-so-familiar New England town of Frost Heaves—from the town dump to the Town Meeting—and all the people who make it special.

Fred—also known as humorist and songwriter Ken Sheldon—has been on New Hampshire Chronicle, in the pages of Yankee Magazine, and New Hampshire Magazine, and on the radio. He has appeared at town halls, church basements, and the homes of most of his friends, usually right around dinner time. Fred is a graduate of the Frost Heaves Academy and the East Coast School of Knife Sharpening and Carburetor Repair.

Copies of  his new book Welcome to Frost Heaves will be available for purchase and signing.
