Oscar Foss Memorial Library News

1000 Books Before Kindergarten!


The Oscar Foss Memorial Library is excited to participate in The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program. This program encourages parents and caregivers to provide positive, nurturing early experiences by reading aloud to their children regularly. Through their partnership, Upstart and the 1000 Books Foundation have designed materials and incentives that help libraries, early childhood centers, and other organizations promote the program.


Research shows that the most reliable predictor of school success is being read to at home during early childhood. The brain develops more rapidly during the first three years of a child’s life than at any other time during the lifespan. Reading to children from an early age can help close the vocabulary gap and prepare children to enter kindergarten with the skills they need to succeed. Most important, sharing books with children promotes a lifelong love of books and reading.


You can register for the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the library or online at The library will be providing the materials needed to participate at no cost to families. 


Please call the library (269-3900) or visit our website ( for more information about these or any of our other programs or events. There is always something happening at the Oscar Foss Memorial Library! Library hours are Mondays from 2 to 8 p.m., Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursdays from 5 to 8 p.m., Fridays from 2 to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.



Letter Of Thanks


The Barnstead PTO Board would like to thank everyone for a great year.  When all of us came to the board brand-new to this last summer, we weren’t even sure where to begin.  However, together with the help of a very supportive community, we found our way and had an extremely successful year.


Although some of our more public events were the Make and Take Craft Event and Teacher Appreciation Week, our efforts spanned the entire school year and ranged from hosting a Gingko Tree contest to providing a Pumpkin Patch for our Pre-K to 5th graders to offering free coffee at the school district meeting.  We also helped supplement resources, in the form of volunteers and materials, for school-run events such as the Book Fair and the Veterans Day assembly.  Beyond that, as a board we decided early on that a large part of our focus this year would be service-oriented, so we worked diligently all year to get things like socks, undergarments, boots, and food into the hands of BES students who needed them.


We would like to thank the numerous individuals who donated time, ideas, and raffle items throughout the year.  In addition to these individuals, we’d also like to thank the following local businesses who made donations: All American Automotive, B-Boys Auto Repair, Christian Michael Studio, The Circle Restaurant, Cleasby Hair Salon, Combustion Auto, Concord Headlines, Danis Market, Dominick’s Pizza, Pasta & Things, Duane Family Farm, Hannaford (Alton), ImaJenAtion Photography, Integrative Skin Care, Jack’s Pizza, J N R Auto, Joe King’s, Lighthouse Therapeutic Massage, Maple Street Church, Sissy’s Sweets and Ice Cream, Star Fall Crochet, Sugar Coat Chari’s, Tiers of Joy, Town Pizza, and The White Buffalo.


If you’d like to be a part of next year’s PTO Board or even if you’d just like to participate in the election process, please plan to attend our public meeting on June 1st at 6:00 p.m. in the BES Library.  We would love strong attendance for this meeting as we elect the new members of the board for the 2016-2017 school year.  For more information on this or for more specifics about the break-down of this year’s accomplishments, visit our Facebook page or go to

Barnstead won the championship in the Suncook Valley Middle School Softball League on Saturday with pitcher Megan Sarno on the mound.

There was great support from all the parents, families and fans!
