Winterfest 2015

Wednesday, February 25, 2015, 1-3pm

At Sanbornton Public Library, we had a lot of fun snowshoeing and toasting marshmallows outside and playing games, crafts and activities inside.  Snowshoes were generously provided by Sanbornton Central School. Check out the photos on our facebook page.

It was wonderful to work with Julie Lonergan and Dolly Elliott of the Sanbornton Recreation Department. The staff at Sanbornton Public Library greatly appreciates the volunteer help of Shirley and Wally Strauch, David and Nancy Adams, and all the delightful food donations.

Movie and Sing-Along on January 2nd

The Library will be showing a movie on Friday, January 2, 2015 at 2 p.m.  This will be a sing-along to a popular movie. The lyrics will appear on the screen and a bouncing snowflake will help us follow along.  Costumes are encouraged.  This will be a fun way to finish school vacation week. Our movie license won’t let us post the title, so call the Library at 286-8288 for information. The program is free and the movie rated PG.
