On Saturday, August 24th, from 11-12 Bethany Hawkins leads this class designed just for families! You and your little ones can create your own unique photo frame that is perfect for gift-giving. Sign up at the desk to reserve your spot. A $5 materials fee will be collected for each craft at the time of registration. Be sure to bring a favorite photo (2x3 or slightly larger) to personalize your craft!
Kiss & Cry Coffee Hour
Summer has been full of games, late nights, ice cream, and swimming…. but, now it’s time for school and you might be feeling
a little sad at the thought.
So, parents, on the first day of school, instead of tearing up as you watch the bus drive off, come down to the library and share a box of tissues with other parents who feel the same way.
Join us in the Maxfield Library’s meeting room for coffee and goodies on Tuesday, Aug. 27, and talk with other parents as your child begins their school year.
Kiss and Cry begins at 8:45 am; the library will open for business at 10:00 am.

Check out our telescope!
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.
