Library 100-Year Anniversary Sun Catchers

To commemorate the Library's 100th Anniversary this year, we have commissioned hand-made pressed glass medallions designed by Old Hancock Glassworks in Antrim, NH. The medallions, which come in green or blue recycled glass, feature the 1914 South Street entrance to the Library. There is a glass loop at the top of each for hanging. These have been made in limited quantities and will only be sold through December 2014.  Cost is $10 each, and they will be available for purchase starting at the Summer Reading Kick-Off event on Friday 6/20. Proceeds from the sales will fund the Library's 100th Anniversary Community Event on Saturday October 18th. For more information, call 224-7113 or email
