“Noble” is the film being shown as the movie matinee at the Epsom Public Library on Wednesday, August 16.  An award winning film, it tells the true story of a fearless Irish heroine driven to escape the slums of Ireland and risk everything on the streets of Vietnam.


On Wednesday, August 23, the library will be showing “Alone in Berlin” at 1:30.  Set in Berlin in 1940, working class couple Otto and Anna Quangel receive the news that their only son has lost his life on the battlefield.  They decide to resist the Nazi regime in their very own way.  Soon the Gestapo is hunting “the threat.”  Emma Thompson and Brendan Gleeson star.   The film is rated R for violence.

Epsom Food Pantry


The Food Pantry is keeping busy.


As we grow we need equipment to keep us up to date, so this week I purchased a small copy machine for the Pantry. I know Ken and crew will appreciate it.


Let me tell you about a marvelous donation we got from Planet Aid Inc. Those are the yellow containers that collect clothes.  Not only did this donation include our Care Pharmacy and Georges Carpet locations, but three other stores in the state. Very thoughtful and many thanks to them for remembering Epsom.


The veggies are making their way to the Pantry and that is great. Thank you everyone.


Until next time,



Seasons In Review


The Epsom Public Library is pleased to announce its new exhibit, “Seasons in Review,” featuring artwork by Northwood resident, Eileen Golden.


Depicting familiar sights of daily New England life, the exhibit includes nearly 40 landscapes, seascapes and still life paintings in watercolor and acrylic.


The artist previously taught art at the elementary school level for 10 years, but has only recently picked up painting for her own pleasure, and is currently studying with Larry Frates, Artist in Residence at Belknap Mill in Laconia. That pleasure, as well as an enthusiasm for her chosen mediums, shows clearly in Eileen’s beautifully-expressed exhibit.


The show runs through September 30th and may be viewed during regular library hours: Monday – Thursday, 10 am to 7 pm, and Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm.  For more information, call the library at 603 736-9920 or visit www.epsomlibrary.com.
