Gilmanton Food Pantry & Thrift Shop News


The volunteers at The Gilmanton Food Pantry & Thrift Shop are pleased to announce that we will now also be open on Mondays from 1 - 4 pm, starting Monday, April 11th.


Spring and summer clothing will be available for sale.  All during the month of April, children’s clothing & accessories will be 50% off.  You are encouraged to stop by and see all the new items available to enhance your summer wardrobe. 


We also want to give a special thank you to everyone who shops at the Thrift Shop.  Your purchases help to keep the shelves of the Food Pantry stocked so that we may assist members of the community who may need a little extra help providing food for their families.  In addition, the sale of clothing has also enabled us to purchase a new freezer for the Pantry.  Our old one failed and freezer space is needed for frozen food.  Thank you to all of our shoppers.


In addition, to all those who donated food, money and gifts for our annual Easter Basket and Bunny Basket program.  Thanks to your generosity, we were able to provide extra items to families so they could enjoy a special meal in celebration of Easter.


If you have never shopped at the Gilmanton Thrift Shop, we invite you to stop in and check it out.  We are open Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and the building is located next to the Gilmanton Community Church on Route 140 in Gilmanton Iron Works.


We look forward to seeing you soon.

Dear Gilmanton Community Members,

I would first like to express my sincere thanks to those who voted in favor of the articles that would have provided the requested partial Town funding for the Gilmanton Year-Round Library. While the vote did not go in favor of Town funding, we remain very optimistic about the future of the GYRL.


The GYRLA Board of Directors has spent many hours meeting and discussing options to overcome the shortfall from the lack of Town funds.  I assure you that we are listening to your views and taking them into consideration.   We made the decision to close on April 1st unless we received $47,500 in donations that would offset our shortfall.  We simply do not feel that it is responsible to operate on a month-to-month basis.  Our goal is to secure adequate funding to allow us to reopen and remain open until next March.


The donations and pledges that have been received since March 8th have far exceeded our expectations.  We are so grateful to each and every one of you for your support.  We have received in excess of $33,000 since March 8th.  If it does become necessary to close on April 1st, it likely will not be for an extended period.   We ask all of our patrons for your understanding and patience.


We are holding a second “Community Conversation” on Thursday, April 7th from 7:00-8:30 at the GYRL.  We are repeating the agenda from the first session in order to provide an opportunity for those who could not attend the March 18th meeting.  These meetings are focused on discussing options to make the GYRL a sustainable and permanent resource in Gilmanton.   We would like to hear from as many residents as possible.  We will be holding additional “Community Conversations” in the near future to continue to develop a long term plan for the GYRL.



Chris Schlegel

GYRLA Board of Directors
