Gilmanton Year-Round Library Moves Forward


The Gilmanton Year-Round Library Board of Directors is pleased to announce that since a new fund raising goal of $45,000 was established on March 13th in order to keep the library open beyond Nov. 1st over $10,000 has been raised through donations. 


One fund raising initiative is the 400 Club. This is an opportunity for 400 people to donate $100. To date 47 people have already signed on.  Remember, obligations of membership are simple: promise to inform neighbors and friends about the Library and urge them to support the Library as a vital asset to the Town.


Another fund raising opportunity is to donate the dollar value your taxes would have been if the library had received Town funding. Some supporters have doubled that amount to cover a neighbor who might not be able to afford a donation at this time. 


The GYRL board and staff thank all those who have already donated to this important cause. If you still haven’t had a chance to contribute, you may send a check made payable to the Gilmanton Year-Round Library, or if you prefer, visit our web site,, where you can make a donation through your PayPal account or with your credit card. Donations are tax deductible.

May 9th -  Sports Lover Crafternoon, 3 – 5 p.m.


Spring is here and it’s a great time to get out and enjoy the sunshine!  The weather doesn’t always cooperate though, so come learn how to play indoor versions of your favorite sports for those rainy days when you’re stuck inside.  We’ll show you how to play shuffle caps, ping pong basketball, paper golf, tabletop football and 3 penny hockey.  You’ll even make a tabletop soccer game and a thumb-wrestling  ring  to take home!


May 15th – An Afternoon at the Movies, 1:15 – 3:15

We will be showing 20th Century Fox’s “Life of Pi”, dubbed “a visual miracle” by TIME magazine.  Although the film is rated PG, the movie’s subject matter may not be suitable for all viewers,  so please use your discretion when deciding whether or not your child should attend.  Popcorn will be served.  (This is a Gilmanton School early release date.)


May 23rd – Lego Club, 3 -5 p.m.

Enjoy building with other Lego enthusiasts.  Choose free play or one of Miss Pam’s many challenges.  All ages and abilities welcome!


Send in a permission slip to the school on the date of the program, and a staff member will walk your child to the Library after school.
