Is there a long distance hike on the Appalachian Trail or the Long Trail in your future?  Do you want information on planning, physical conditioning, gear, clothing, food, and resupply? Do you know how much your pack should weigh? Is it safe to hike alone? What equipment should I bring? Should I take a snake bite kit? What about bears, vultures, and wild boar? 
The Gordon-Nash Library, 69 Main Street, New Hampton, N.H. is sponsoring a day-long workshop on long distance hiking and developing a personalized system for a long distance hike.

Next Movie at The Gordon-Nash


April 17th 
6:00 p.m. 
Nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Monsieur Lazhar tells the poignant story of a Montreal middle school class shaken by the death of their well-liked teacher. Bachir Lazhar (Fellag), a 55-year-old Algerian immigrant, offers the school his services as a substitute teacher and is quickly hired. As he helps the children heal, he also learns to accept his own painful past. This moving film features exquisite performances by Fellag and a stunning ensemble of child actors.

TEENS WE NEED YOU! Flume Award

Go to this address to join the fun:
http://flumeaward.wikispaces.com/home 

Titles must be nominated by teens in grades 9-12, can be fiction or nonfiction books, with appeal to this age group. They must have a publication date within the last two years (no older than 2010). If the book is part of a series, it must be able to stand alone, meaning a reader doesn't have to read the other books in the series to understand what's going on.

We invite you to comment on these nominations. Please click on a title of a book that you wish to discuss and you will come to a discussion page. Click the tab that says "Edit this page" and begin typing your comments. Please include your name and library-if you only want to put your first name, that's fine. After you have finished, hit "Save." We especially welcome your input in terms of whether you think the book will appeal to teens in grades 9-12, whether it appeals to boys and girls, and how it compares to other works of the same genre. If it is part of a series, please say whether you think the book stands alone. Also, please let us know if you think it should or should not be on the "final 13" nominated list.

One final note: If the title was nominated last year, you will find the discussion page includes the comments made by readers who wrote about the book during last year's nomination process. Feel free to add new comments or to revise your comments from last year.

In the past, the selection committee has chosen to include titles that also appear on the Isinglass list. The committee recognizes that a book can appeal to both age groups.

UPDATE: When you click on a title, you will get to the discussion page for that book. The title on the discussion page is linked to its NHU PAC entry, where you can see the book's cover and read reviews if you wish.

Selection Meeting for 2014 Flume Award: Tuesday, April 9, at 3:00 pm at West High School in Manchester.


MOVIE NIGHT!


  • "A truly magical experience of cinema brilliance." --VideoViews

    "A miracle of a movie. Beautiful, full of love and life." --John Foote, incontention.com

    "Beautiful film." --efilmcritic
    Product Description
    With the approach of Christmas causing him to feel lonely in life and love, Robert Malone ((Academy Award Winner Martin Landau) braves the wintery snow to arrive home from his job at the grocery store only to find a stranger (Academy Award Winner Ellen Burstyn) standing in his home.

    What begins as an odd and awkward encounter quickly blossoms into what appears to be a romantic late life love affair that takes us on a heartfelt and wonderful journey which takes an unexpected turn.

    Skillfully and sensitively directed by Nik Fackler, the film also stars Elizabeth Banks and Adam Scott, and features original music by Conor Oberst and a score by Nate Walcott and Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes
