Happy New Year!










Happy New Year from everyone at the Gordon-Nash Library! We hope that
next year will be better than this last year, and not as good as the years to come!
We hope you join us in January for our movie series, as well as upcoming
programming that we think will be quite exciting.
Would you like to start a knitting group at the Gordon-Nash?  Would you
be interested in sharing your knowledge by giving a class at the library? For more
information, give us a call at 744-8061.
Parents and Children! Starting in January we will have a drop –in craft time in the Children’s Area of the library. Each week there will be a different craft for you and your children to make.  Help is available if there are any questions.

Library Closed Tomorrow!

There's a big storm coming our way...


I believe in keeping the staff of the Gordon-Nash Library safe, which includes not asking them to drive
to the library during a Nor'Easter. 

I hope you all just stay home tomorrow!

We'll open at Noon on Friday. 

I've got a feeling on this one...

On behalf of the Staff of The Gordon-Nash Library I would like to wish everyone a safe and peaceful  Christmas.

Silence now

For the families in Connecticut 

The Gordon-Nash Library
 
 
We've been having fun making cinnamon ornaments for the tree--though most of them
have wound up going home with people, or on our desk.  Sometimes the whole library smells cinnamony but not overwhelming!  There is still time for you to come in
and make something for yourself!
 
What are your favorite movies?  We are starting a Movie Night at the library in January, with movies by Alfred Hitchcock to begin with. What would you like
to see?
 
Would you like to teach a class at the library?  We are opening a lovely room downstairs in order to  accommodate you. We would love to have art classes (in almost all media)
knitting, and other crafts, yoga or tai chi instruction, please call 744-8061 for more details.
 
If you would like to use our the great Nash Room for a meeting, call us for details!
 
We have bought a lot of new books--too many to list here. Remember, you don't have to live in New Hampton to be a member of The Gordon-Nash Library!

The Re-dedication of the Civil War Memorial In New Hampton, New Hampshire



I was so pleased to welcome the children from the Mr. McCann’s Fourth Grade Class, of the New Hampton School, Matt Fisk NHS History Department Chair and his students from the New Hampton School, and Gordon DuBois, President of the New Hampton Historical Society, and everyone else to the library this morning for the first part of the Re-dedication of the Civil War Monument of New Hampton. 

Listening to Mr. Fisk telling us the story of the brave sons and brothers of New Hampton who went into that terrible war, and seeing the students from the New Hampton School, I couldn't help but think that those students, who were about to recite from Lincoln's writings at the unveiling, were the same age as some of the boys who, so many years ago, went to fight in the Civil War. 

I wish I could have gone with everyone to the monument to hear the recitations and  “Battle Hymn of the Republic” sung. Duty kept me in the library. There is something so important and touching about children's voices raised in song! Whenever I am in the presence of a scene like that my heart is always opened and, honestly, my eyes get a little dewy. 
The children were so attentive and interested in the history! 
I wonder how many ate Mr. Fisk's hard tack? 

So, it was an honor to play my little part in welcoming this great group of people. 
This is a wonderful community!
