The Epsom Public Library
hosts Children’s Author, Julia Walsh on Monday, June 26th at 6:30pm.

Julie and her explorations along the banks of the Merrimack River
where she quietly observes the ducks through the tall sea grass.
Books may be preordered for this event at the circulation desk. Call
the library at 736-9920 for more information.
Wednesday, June 28 the Epsom Public Library will be showing the
film, “Witness for the Prosecution” at 1:30 PM. When a
glamorous socialite is murdered in her home, all evidence points to
her young lover. As the scandalous case goes to trial, the
prosecutor finds that the case may be his undoing. The Daily
Telegraph UK calls this film “a dark, perfectly contemporary
morality tale” set in 1920s London.

This week, the
only legislative activity is in the committees of conference. There
are over 100 bills signed by the governor, and another 120 on their
way. Most have gotten no publicity at all: many deservedly, since
they name bridges and buildings, or create or modify study
committees. Here’s a few of the ones that may be interesting or
important to you.
HB 108 allows towns to convert paper records to
electronic form for retention. HB 194 permits employers to pay
bi-weekly without needing permission from the state. HB 349 requires
any court-ordered removal of a child from its home give specific,
written report of the basis for this decision. HB 355 requires every
adult in a prospective adoptive or foster home get a complete
criminal records check. HB 437 specifically authorizes local police
to issue accident reports to those involved, not requiring a trip to
the DMV. HB 366 updates the requirements for outdoor wood-fired
heaters. HB 433 authorizes firefighter decals on multiuse license
HB 460 allows a local official in a non-public meeting to
object to it being non-public, and being overruled, have his
objection noted in the minutes. HB 552 requires the secretary of
state to check non-deliverable letters sent to people who voted with
only affidavits for identity, citizenship, and domicile against
public records, including the interstate voter database, and turn
any suspicious cases over to the attorney general for investigation.
SB 27 repeals the maximum height requirement for motorcycle
