Summer Reading Signups Have Begun
Program Runs from June 26 through July 27
                            This year's theme, Build a Better World at Your Library, will help readers of all ages learn more about construction, art, design, architecture, whatever the word "build" might suggest--almost everything when you think about it.  The official Summer Reading kick-off event will take place in Durham on Wednesday, June 28, just after school ends.

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
