Snowstorm in the Library!

We had a "Snowstorm in the Library Storytime" today after reading "Snowmen at Night" by Caralyn Buehner and  "A Little Bit of Winter" by Paul Stewart.  

After our stories we had a few 'storms' (very popular!) Then we put on music: "The Skater's Waltz" and skated with our wax paper skates. A few tumbles, a few twirls, and lots of fun! We had hot chocolate with marshmallows to warm up, then made our own decorated mittens.

Great resources for you: Ebsco

Have you noticed that the library might not have older editions of magazines and newspapers in the library? It doesn't mean that you can't find the article you need! Instead of keeping (and storing) hundreds or thousands of magazines on the shelves, the articles are available to you through the New Hampshire statewide subscription to EBSCO and Newsbank.

An easy way to access these magazines, along with the latest issues, is to go to our 'Online Newsstand'. Look at the top of this home page and click 'Online Newsstand'. Scroll down and choose your subject to find the magazine of your choice. Please call us if you have any problems at 876.4479.
