blanket/chair and your own picnic to enjoy with friends and neighbors!
Barrington families and card holders can register for the Library’s Summer Reading Program at this event and sign-up for story times, craft sessions and special programs being offered for varied age groups. The Friends of the Library will pull Raffle Basket winners following the performance.
Haunted Hikes of New Hampshire
Wednesday, June 29 @ 6:30 PM
Join Marianne O’Connor as she shares ghost stories, legends and lore associated with some of NH’s premier hiking trails. This summer, kids and adults alike will want to get up off the couch and explore these haunts for themselves! This one hour presentation will highlight unusual ghost stories and spooky surprises on many NH trails. Visit haunted huts, abandoned villages, and wonder at whether a UFO actually landed at Indian Head!
Come early for limited seating.
Paid for with a donation from Fabulous Find of Kittery Maine.
This will be a group that meets monthly to share and critique writing they are working on at home. A place where writer’s can share their work, get feedback, and meet others who are writing. Dates for upcoming meetings will be: June 25th, July 23rd, August 27th, October 1st, November 5th, and December 3rd from 10:30AM-Noon.
If you are
interested in coming once a month to such a group, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
with your name and contact information. High school age and up are welcomed to join.
Although it is wonderful if you can make all the sessions; it is not required. You can certainly select ones that fit your schedule and take a weekend off when necessary.
Movie Mondays: Zootopia (PG)
