Dear Gilmanton Voters,

Please support the Gilmanton Year-Round Library this year at election time.


The request is LESS than last year by more than $6,000 so there will be no new tax impact.


The Board was able to raise the $18,000 additional funds for this year AND $25,000 to go toward the 2015 year keeping the request to $45,000.


The Board is very fiscally responsible.


The board can apply for grants if they have Town financial help.


More services and programs are available. E-books are now available for Gilmanton residents.


New families expect to have a library and most come to the library within weeks of moving to town.


School children are now regularly walking over to the library for after school programs and have come to expect the service.


The library is serving the needs of this community in a positive and economical manner.


Consider the facts and do what is right for our community. This request has only a positive impact on all residents.


Please support Warrant Article # 25 on March 10th when you go to vote.

E-Books Now At The Gilmanton Year-Round Library


The Gilmanton Year-Round Library is happy to announce they now offer access to Ebooks.   Librarian Tasha LeRoux Stetson tells patrons:  “If you already have a library card all you need to do is make a quick stop at and follow the link to start your search   For any questions regarding your account information please call 603-364-2400 and we will be happy to assist you.”


Over the past years the Library has  received numerous requests from patrons to add e-book service to the library.  Tasha continues: “After we did the initial research we were sad to have to say no but the cost was too high for our budget. Each year we have revisited this idea and when we received information stating we were one of the only towns in the entire state not offering this service, we knew we had to make a change.


“It is our belief the residents of Gilmanton NH are equally as deserving as the rest of New Hampshire’s residents. Seeing we were below the curve again pushed us to find a way to make it happen. Through generous and continued donations we were able make this small dream a reality.”


“It gives us great pleasure to be able to bridge the gaps, offer access and create equal opportunities for the citizens of this town. So, stop on by and try out this new service. No Kindle at home? Did you know you can read an ebook on your phone too? Let us show you how.”



Letter To The Editor


To the Editor,

We just wanted to voice our support for the Gilmanton Year Round Library.  What I would like to focus on is how our family and many like ours in town have greatly benefited from the Year Round library.  This Library has been a real treat to our family and we have used it for books, movies, and even shared in the different fun events that the Library hosts.  Just last weekend our 7th grade daughter finished her book Friday night and wanted the second in the series. Did we mention the fact that we love that our kids love to read . . . books . . . actual, turn the pages, books? Saturday morning we drove to the library and got her the book. Today our 2nd grader watched a movie there after school with some of his friends.  The library is a comfortable, safe environment for our kids. The hours are set, they are year round, and they are convenient. 


We feel many times when we go to the library it’s like old home day for a young family like ours.  It is so awesome to see other families we know, who are from our community, enjoying this resource. 


The Year Round Library has become a staple for our family and we don’t want to keep this gem we have found, a secret or to ever see it close.


The Warren Family
