September is Library Card Sign-Up Month
The libraries of NH, in the spirit of good nature competition, have challenged each other to get the largest percentage increase for new cards in that month. Has your card lapsed? Grab a new one. Have a friend that doesn’t use the library? Bring them on in to see all the great services we offer and get them signed up! If we win, our name will be emblazoned on the trophy and we can display it for a year. We can do it with your help.
Help us win this Library Card Challenge trophy!

Location: Field Beside the Library
NH Astronomical Society members will bring their telescopes for people to look through. The event will be held in the field beside the library (near the park). We will be observing the planets Mars and Saturn, double stars, star clusters, and galaxies.
A "Sky Watch" is simply a gathering of amateur astronomers with a focus on outreach and education for the public at large. A Sky Watch is by definition "beginner-friendly." www.nhastro.com/skywatch.php
Dress warmly & bring red flashlights please. No white lights! A red light will not ruin your night vision as much as white light will. You can cover the lens of a regular light with red plastic or tail-light repair tape. A dim light will seem bright once your eyes become dark-adapted. The large telescopes brought by NHAS members will be set up and pointed towards interesting objects…this is a family friendly event.
Parents are asked to watch children closely as the equipment utilized may have cables, or be knocked down easily.
Barrington Police K9 Demonstration - October 1st at 10:30am

Demos are designed to portray the skill involved and the work performed by the K-9 teams on a daily basis, plus give us an opportunity to gain knowledge and ask questions about the K-9 Unit here in our town.
