Events for February 2015

The Library Trustees and staff would like to welcome Callie Faucher as our new Children’s Librarian. Callie has worked at several public libraries in New Hampshire, most recently at the Goffstown Public Library. She brings a warmth and enthusiasm to her work in the Children’s Room and will be a true asset to the Hancock Town Library. Callie started this week! We hope you’ll come in to introduce yourselves and get to know her.

Don’t forget to take a look at our online catalog at https://hancock.biblionix.com, all from the comfort of your own home! You can check what you have out, renew and reserve items – in your bunny slippers if you wish! And if you haven’t yet picked up your new card, please stop in and do so.

Monday February 9th from 5:00 – 7:00 pm
State Representative Jon Manley

Representative Manley (representing Bennington, Greenfield, and Hancock) will be in the Daniels Room to talk about the gasoline tax and answer any questions you may have on that topic or on any upcoming legislation in Concord. Free and open to all.

Thursday February 12th 10:30 – Noon
Writer’s Awake!

Do you like to write?  If so, this is a good time to get started again - or carry on - and often leads to many pleasures. We'll be talking about how to leave a legacy of living memories for your friends and family, a way to preserve some of the past as a gift for your great grandchildren, or a gift to yourself in thinking over your experiences.  We'll talk about ways to give your writing structure, how to find your own voice, and how to be patient with progress.  Come as a novice or experienced writer - all are welcome.  Does History matter, or Herstory? Margaret Carlson has taught writing at Conval High School, Franklin Pierce College and most recently at the adult learning program at Keene State College. Pre-registration is appreciated. Please call or visit the library to register: 525-4411. Free and open to all.

Thursday February 12th at 7:00 pm

Love Poems – For All Ages & All Kinds of Love

Lefty Blue Musical Duo

Please join local musicians Brian Murphy (on guitar and vocals) and Monica Laskey-Rigrod (on vocals) for an evening of new and old favorites. Playing an eclectic array of songs, from old standards to new musicals, Lefty Blue will entertain everyone in your family, from the very young to the young-at-heart. You'll want to sing along and join in the fun! Free and open to all.

Lapsit Storytime

Walking and talking, the babies to toddler story time is an interactive program for all pre-school children and their parents or care providers. We’ll share books, rhymes, songs, finger play & movement. Our goal is to foster an early love of books and literacy. At the end of the program, there will be playtime for parents and caregivers to share books, puzzles, or other literacy activities with their toddler. Dress comfortably as we will be sitting on the floor in the Children’s Room. No registration required, feel free to drop in anytime.
