    Maxfield Library and Loudon Historical Society invite you to celebrate YOUR town!

    Join us Wednesday, January 23, anytime between 4-7pm at the library to see some of the town's historical items, learn a bit of Loudon history, and, of course, enjoy a piece of birthday cake! 

    Loudon was incorporated on January 23, 1773, making the town 246 years old this year. This means you have 4 more years to learn how to say "sesquicentennial!"
  • Our telescope is now available for check out!

      

    The Library has recieved a gift of an Orion StarBlast 4.5-inch Astronomical Telescope  with a zoom eye piece and supportive material and an instruction manual. The telescope is easy to use and is robust. There is nothing to assemble.  The telescope is of manageable size, but has a relatively large optical tube. This means that the Moon and deep sky objects will show far more detail than one could see with the common "beginners" telescopes. It also has a large field of view that allows the object to stay in the eyepiece longer. This is a quality instrument, reviewed by a number of astronomical publications and found quite worthy.

    Many thanks to  the New Hampshire Astronomical Society and Loudon resident Curtiss Rude for the generous gift.
