Local musician Bob Moore to perform at the Library

The East Kingston Public Library is holding a music concert in the library on Saturday, August 23rd featuring local songwriter/guitarist Bob Moore. The concert is a 1-hour program starting at 2:00 PM.

The concert will include Moore performing newly composed songs and poems and also feature some of his earlier work. He’ll also share some contemporary songs composed by local and national artists. Moore has been writing poetry and songs since the early 1990’s. He released a collection of songs in 1991 entitled, “On a Mission”.

Following a retreat and having the chance to read some Emerson and other New England poets, he began spending his time delving into poetry, and self-published a collection of poems in 1997 entitled, “A Bridge with a View”. In 2009, he released a second collection of poems entitled “Unexpected Colors”, published by Beech River Books.

In 2013, Moore released a collection of instrumentals for solo guitar also entitled “A Bridge with a View”. Moore is host of The First Friday Coffeehouse held monthly every first Friday of the month at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Exeter in Exeter, NH.

He also performs with the acoustic-driven trio Sylvan Roots. By day, he works as a science teacher at Pelham High School in Pelham, NH.

The Power to Choose:

Your options for electricity providers and plans

Have you received notices in the mail suggesting that you switch electrical providers? Have you wondered what the "green" energy options are all about, or how best to save money this winter? Christophe Courchesne, a Conservation Law Foundation staff attorney and East Kingston resident will present on these issues on Tuesday, January 14, 2014, 7:00 pm at the East Kingston Public Library, 47 Maplevale Road, East Kingston, NH.

With retail competition in the electric market, New Hampshire residents now have many new options for electric service. Learn more about them, including the growing number of "green" options, the significant savings that are available, and the important considerations when switching to a competitive electric supplier. Christoph will also discuss how the New England energy markets are changing and what it all means for New Hampshire residents, our economy, and our environment.

For more information on your choices, visit http://www.empowernh.com

This program is free and open to the public. Sponsored by The Friends of the East Kingston Public Library.

Family Movie Night at the Library

A Christmas Story 2 (Rated PG)
Friday, December 20th, 6:00 PM
Years after realizing his childhood dream of getting a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas, 16-year-old Ralphie sets his bespectacled sights on a gift of the four-wheeled variety in this sequel to the Bob Clark’s beloved 1983 classic A Christmas Story. As the snow begins to fall and the carolers start to sing, Ralphie dreams of waking up on Christmas morning to find the keys to a 1938 Hupmobile Skyline Convertible dangling from the tree, and embracing a whole new world of freedom as he cruises the streets of Hohman, Indiana in style.

To watch the trailer: www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHJNBZ2rrMM
Bring the whole family for an evening of free fun at the Library! Dress the kids in their pj's and let them bring a sleeping bag or stuffed animal to snuggle with and get comfy on the floor. Bring water to drink - no other drinks allowed, and we will provide popcorn for all. This is a great opportunity to get the family out for some fun, and we understand that it is also a good time to see if little ones will sit through a public screening of a movie. We do ask that if anyone is having trouble sitting and watching the movie quietly that they step out or try again a different time. This way, everyone can hear and enjoy the film. We hope to see you there!

Rules
Be a quality audience; be respectful of the library and of those in attendance
Movies begin at 7:00 PM SHARP – If you should come after that time please show respect for the audience
Parental supervision is required at all times; children moving about in the Library will be asked to leave
The Library is a library and should be treated as such
Popcorn will be provided but bring your own water
