Letter To The Editor


To The Editor,


I have never been as proud as I am now of my role in bringing SB2 to Northwood. SB2 will let us vote any way we want on the proposed $8.5 million dollar Safety Complex in the privacy of a voting booth, instead of a few deciding in a cold gym. I predict that a record turnout will have their say. 


Yes, after all fees including interest this will cost taxpayers $8.5 million. It certainly appears that all of the work to get to this point was done illegally. We have the legal right RSA 91-a:4 to have town business done in the light at legally posted meetings, with minutes taken in a legal way filed in the legal amount of time. Citizens have the legal right to attend those meetings.


We do not know anything. No records were kept. I have a million unanswered question on how in a mere 70 days the SC was able to able to hold their first meeting and present to us a completed package on a $8.5 million dollar safety Complex. Can’t be done. Not possible. So who negotiated all of this? How many corners were cut? How many laws were broken?  Did their job go wanting while town business was being done on the sly. We’ll never really know. Not one record was kept. No video, no minutes. The Facility Committee certainly appears to have been purposely cut out of the loop. Why? Why 6M, 8.5M with interest, when much larger towns all around NH can build for much less. Farmington, just constructed for $2.34M. Legal issues, probably needs a Judge. See my ad in this week's Sun.

Sessions include group critique, writing exercises, and craft discussion. Some participants may want to come early or stay late for some quiet writing time. All genres welcome.  Get some writing done this year, learn from each other, and have some fun, too! Local writers will take turns leading the group sessions.


National Puzzle Day

Tuesday, January 29 is National Puzzle Day. We will have a variety of puzzles around the library so drop in and enjoy putting a puzzle together with your friends and family.  There may be an app for that, but this is your chance to get back to basics with a hands-on puzzle!


Abenaki Display

Come see the Abenaki Display at the library!  Ms. Desmarais’ 4th grade class at the Northwood School studied the Abenaki Indians.  The Abenaki were the original natives of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.  You will notice Abenaki can be spelled Abnaki, Abanaki, or Abenaqui.  Abenaki Indians also call themselves Alnombak, which means “the people.”

Are you ready for some new Magformers? The Power Construction Magformer Set has joined our library collection!  We can pull out the Magformers, LEGOs, and Brainflakes on demand so just ask any staff member for a set when you are looking for some creative play time.  Research scientist Dorothy Singer suggests that “promoting play contributes to early literacy development by increasing attention span, memory, creativity, and language and vocabulary skills. It also lays the foundation for logical mathematical thinking, scientific reasoning, and problem solving.”  We can leave your creations on display until the next session so bring your family and friends back to see your masterpieces!  


Boston Museum Passes

Visit one of the museums in Boston!  The library has passes to the Boston Museum of Science, the Boston Children’s Museum, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts thanks to help from the Friends of the Northwood Libraries.  Each pass works a little differently so call the library at 942-5472 for updated information regarding passes. We can also provide you with information on when to visit the Currier Museum in Manchester
