Eclipse Party!
Monday, August 21, Drop-in begins at 1:30
Experience the awe-inspiring solar eclipse at the Madbury Public Library.  Join educator Dr. Charles Ott to learn about the sun, the moon, and the eclipse itself, and then watch it safely with our special viewing glasses.  (We are grateful to NASA for donating 50 pairs of viewing glasses, available on a first-come, first-served basis.)  

The eclipse will be partially observable by 2:00, reach its maximum in our area by 2:45, and end just before 4:00.  Come, learn, observe!
Thanks for a Great Summer of Reading!

Congratulations, MPL's Kayla Morin!
NH Children's Librarian of the Year
Our very own Kayla Morin has been given the state's highest honor for a children's librarian in New Hampshire.  Nominated by the Goodwin Library in Farmington, where she also works (and lives), Kayla received the award at the annual CHILIS (Children's Librarians of NH) conference held in Manchester on March 30, 2017.  Cited for her energy, resourcefulness, and dedication to early literacy initiatives, Kayla has helped make Goodwin a Family Place Library (one of only two in New Hampshire).  She spends only a third of her work week in Madbury but her commitment to young readers and their families has left its mark here as well. 

MPL reaches out to Madbury's youngest and oldest readers
New outreach offering at Carriage Hill Assisted Living
Did you know that each month, Children's Librarian Kayla Morin hosts a story time at Little Tree Education Center? And Library Director Susan Sinnott began a monthly book discussion at Carriage Hill Assisted Living, scheduled for each second Thursday at 2:00 PM?  Happy to serve such a wide age range!
