The party for our 100th birthday celebration of our library building. will be held from 2-4 pm on Old Home Day (Saturday, August 16th) in our beautiful Friendship Garden. We need volunteers to design and build a parade float and help with other activities still in the planning stages. Contact the library trustees and Friends of the Library to offer assistance. Look for details in the FORUM and the town website.
Library materials belong to all of us. Please return borrowed items on time. Remember that items may be renewed by telephone as long as the item is not reserved for another patron. Have the item handy so you can supply the date due, the author and title. Thank you for your help!
The mission of the Philbrick-James Library is to provide a wealth of materials in a variety of formats to encourage a love of reading for education, information, and recreation and to foster a curiosity for
lifelong learning for all ages. We will create an atmosphere which is welcoming and inclusive. The library
will be an educational hub of the community, working with the public school and other agencies to provide the services which community members need.
We will seek to provide additional materials by borrowing through the inter-library loan system instituted by the New Hampshire State Library.
We will strive to meet recommended standards of library service when possible within budgetary constraints.
