Just the right amount of zany family fun for School Vacation Week!
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.
We appreciate your support at March's Town Meeting, March 16
