Saturday September 25th from 7 - 9 pm
The Hancock Town Library will open its 150th Anniversary celebration with Saturday Night in the Stacks on September 25. The town’s many literary lights, writers as well as illustrators, will gather for a social evening with their readers. “It’s no surprise that writers like to meet readers,” says Hancock’s Howard Mansfield, “and when they’re neighbors, it’s even more fun.”
History will be made and a sacred rule will be wantonly broken as the town’s cultural hub seeks to become “New Hampshire’s Loudest Library.” “At 7:30, the party’s going to raise the roof,” says library director Amy Markus. “This library sees a lot of action,” she says, “we’re not the quietest library – so why shouldn’t we be the loudest, at least for one night.”
Saturday Night in the Stacks will be the first of many anniversary celebrations this fall. Delicious snacks and beverages will be served. Evelien Bachrach’s paintings will be featured in the Daniels Room. Families are welcome, admission is free (though there will be a 50/50 raffle to benefit the library), and all are encouraged to bring their own noisemakers.
