Happy 5th Birthday - Gilmanton Year-Round Library!


On September 12th, 2009, the Gilmanton Year-Round Library celebrated its grand opening with many visitors, most receiving library cards. Five years later the Library has 1653 card holders and some13,500 items on the shelves. But numbers alone don’t tell the whole story.


In addition to  two weekly story time sessions, children’s programming has grown to include the wildly popular Lego Club and early release day Afternoon at the Movies. Paper and Popcorn gives young patrons the opportunity to compare popular movies with the books they are based upon. The summer reading program continues to draw more participants every year, with nearly 300 attendees in programs this past July. 


If you enjoy being creative, the Gilmanton Year-Round Library has many opportunities to learn a craft, hone your skills and share your knowledge with others, through monthly Crafting for the Clumsy and children’s Crafternoon sessions.  The Library hosts various community groups who make use of the ample meeting space, including Magic the Gathering, the Gilmanton Gathers book group and various scouting troops. 


The Library offers the opportunity for patrons to borrow books not in our collection, at no extra charge, through the state-wide interlibrary loan system.  The Library will soon be providing the much anticipated eBooks!


The Gilmanton Year-Round Library is proud of the amazing growth in the past five years in both the number of patrons using the library as well as the increase in the services and programming offered.  What we are most grateful for, however, what gives us the most joy, is the connections we have been privileged to facilitate. Preschoolers have formed first friendships during story time, while their families have found support from one another. Families with young children meet up on dreary winter days to play and escape the dreaded cabin fever. Teens have a safe place to hang out with one another during our monthly Friday teen nights. The Gilmanton Year-Round Library is often the first stop for people who are new to town. Friends who meet by chance stay long after their books are checked out, catching up in our cozy community living-room atmosphere. 


The Library staff enjoys meeting members of our community and it’s not long before new patrons become dear friends. Stop in soon, say hello and check us out!
