Help Wanted: Friends Needing Friends

Do you have a New Year’s Resolution to “give back” or to “get more involved”? The Friends of the East Kingston Public Library needs you!
We have immediate openings for volunteers in several positions:

The Pound School Used Book shop is open two shifts on Fridays (10:00 am to 1:30 pm and 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm) and one on Saturdays (10:00 am to 1:00 pm). The shop is staffed by volunteers who typically work only one shift each month. We need a few more names to add to our schedule list.

Our Programs Committee is in need of new members. If you’ve ever enjoyed one of the great programs put on by the Friends at the Library, here’s a good opportunity to get more involved. The committee meets one morning a month for 2 hours at the Library.

Also, the Programs Committee is currently without a leader, a must-have for us to continue offering the quality programming at the Library for which we are known. If you have managerial skills, this is a super opportunity for you to give back. In addition to the monthly committee meetings, the chair participates in the quarterly Friends board meetings.

Finally, the Friends Board of Management urgently needs a Secretary. Major responsibilities include taking and publishing meeting minutes (we meet once a quarter in the evening at the Pound School), as well as organizing and maintaining our Corporate Record Book. If you have some secretarial skills, this is a great opportunity for you to get more involved.

If one of these openings is of interest, please contact President Ted Lloyd for more information. He can be reached by email (ted@onepinewoods.us) or by phone at (603) 479-7073 If you’re not currently a Friends member, no problem! We can quickly sign you up. Our annual dues are only $15 — the best donation deal in town!

Kids activities will include crafts, face painting and hay rides.  Hay rides start at 2:00 pm and then every 1/2 hour. Last one will be 3:30 pm. Bring a hat, scarf, items for face, etc. to create your amazing snow man for the snow man competition (weather permitting!).  Toast some marshmallows on the fire pit (weather permitting) and warm up with a cup of hot chocolate or hot cider.

The event is free and everyone is welcome.  Help us make this 4th annual event another huge success.

Library Holiday Reception

The Friends of the East Kingston Public Library is hosting their annual holiday reception at the library on Sunday, November 29th from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM, to show their appreciation for the remarkable support East Kingston residents have given to the library.

This adults-only event is offered to provide an informal and relaxing afternoon of refreshments and music, plus an opportunity to meet and chat with the Friends and the Trustees of the Library.

The Friends organization has been very important to the success of our library, and they would like to tell how you can help to continue that success in the future. They will describe their role in planning, organizing and funding library programs and events, and the Library Trustees will answer any questions you may have about how the library is managed and funded.

Music will be provided by local guitarist Bob Moore. The program will also include a raffle of several poinsettias and a double sided Patriots fleece blanket. Everyone who attends will be eligible to win.

Mingle with the Friends and the Trustees, get to know your neighbors and enjoy some refreshments. We hope you will stop in!

Treasure from the Isles of Shoals

NH Humanities Council scholar J. Dennis Robinson will appear at 7:00 PM Friday, September 18, 2015, at the East Kingston Public Library, 47 Maplevale Road, East Kingston, NH.

Dennis will present a program on Treasure from the Isles of Shoals: How new archaeology is changing old history. There is treasure here but not the pirate kind. Scientific “digs” on Smuttynose Island are changing New England history. A longtime Smuttynose steward, he explores the truth behind the romantic legends of Gosport Harbor in this colorful show-and-tell presentation.

Dennis has published over 1,000 articles on New Hampshire history and culture. His books for young readers include biographies of Jesse James and Lord Baltimore. His hardcover histories of Strawbery Banke Museum and historic Wentworth by the Sea Hotel both received honors from the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH). His two new books on privateering and the War of 1812 will appear in 2011. Robinson is also editor of SeacoastNH.com, a Web site about NH history and culture that attracts thousands of visitors daily. His lectures are designed to make history both entertaining and accessible to all audiences.
The New Hampshire Humanities Council provided a grant to make this program possible. Learn more about the council and its work at www.nhhc.org.

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