2017 brings new and exciting changes to the Josiah Carpenter Library. We start off with introducing you to our new Children’s Librarian, Holly Brown.  Holly began with the library at the end of last summer as a Circulation Assistant and quickly began learning about library cataloging and procedures. She came to the library with a background in Early Childhood Education having worked in a school media center as well as 21 years as a first, second and third grade elementary teacher in Newport, NH. Holly has been working with Carol Grainger to cover the Children’s Library Preschool story hour and after school maker programs and will begin as the lead children’s library services person on Jan 9, 2017. She will continue as the contact person for the 1,000 books before Kindergarten program as well as instrumentally helping coordinate the Summer Reading Program for children ages Preschool through 5th grade. Please stop by the library and meet Holly. She is a friendly person with lots of ideas, talent and enthusiasm. Holly, the library staff and the Friends of the Library are looking forward to working with other local organizations to bring you first rate children’s programs in the coming year.
