Call For Work


Renderings
Or
The Book Remade (working title)
The Gordon-Nash Library, in New Hampton, NH is sponsoring a show of books--re-worked, reorganized, painted, cut, ornamented or embellished--in any way the artist sees fit. The pieces may be interactive, or not, as the artist chooses.  We would also consider an installation or two.  Work must be delivered, and picked up, either through the mail, or in person, by the artist who will pay the transportation costs. Works will be for sale, if the artist wishes, with a 50/50 split with the Library.
We also have some books you may use, if you like, as long as you pay the shipping, or pick up the books at the library.
Deadline for Submissions is March 29th, 2013 for a show in April, 2013.
This is an open call with no costs for submission.
For more details please email:

New Young Adult Area at The Gordon-Nash Library

The Public Card Catalog--empty for a long time now--has finally been removed from the upstairs
area which means, at long last:

 The Young Adult Area is officially 

  OPEN! 

We have lots of new YA Fiction available--with more coming! 
There are games and a seating area.
However, we need some decorating ideas from our young adult audience. We would love to hear from the young adults in the area about books, decorating, and programming ideas they
would like to see at the library.


Welcome!

Veteran's Day

Just a reminder:

We are closed on Saturday, November 10th in observance of Veteran's Day

Absolution Poem

Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967). The Old Huntsman and Other Poems. 1918.

THE anguish of the earth absolves our eyes
Till beauty shines in all that we can see.
War is our scourge; yet war has made us wise,
And, fighting for our freedom, we are free.

Horror of wounds and anger at the foe,
And loss of things desired; all these must pass.
We are the happy legion, for we know
Time’s but a golden wind that shakes the grass.


There was an hour when we were loth to part
From life we longed to share no less than others.
Now, having claimed this heritage of heart,
What need we more, my comrades and my brothers?

Photo: When : Always November 8th

Dunce Day celebrates the the term "Dunce" and dunce caps. Today marks the death (November 8, 1308) of medieval scholar Duns Scotus of Duns, Scotland.

Dunce Day is all about learning. So, lets get right to it and learn about dunce caps and the creator of dunce caps.

Duns Scotus of Duns, Scotland was a medieval scholar. Perceptions of his views ranged from brilliant to less than complimentary. Duns Scotus believed that cone shaped hats increased learning potential. He believed knowledge would flow from the point of the cap, down and into the head of the wearer, making that person smarter. About all this accomplished over time, was the perception of a person wearing a dunce cap to be...... a dunce. There was a positive side to his use of dunce caps. It motivated the wearer to learn more, so he could be rid of the the cap. Scholar critics of his work derived the term "dunce" from his name and place of birth.

Put on a Dunce Cap today, and have a very smart and educational Dunce Day!!!

Hurricane Sandy


As we breathe a sigh of relief that we had as little damage as we did, after Hurricane Sandy, our thoughts go out to those still affected.
We wish them well and remember that this is the time for people to pull together and help each other out.
