Try your luck, and the library lucks out!

Play a hand of poker, stop at the blackjack or roulette table, spin the money wheel or roll the dice at craps.

Make an evening of it with a visit to the casino’s restaurant or stop by to mingle at the cash bar between games.

Whether you leave with your pockets full of cash, or a considerably lighter wallet, you’ll know you’ve donated to a good cause!

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.

We hope to see you there!

Children’s Woodworking Workshop!

Remember hand made presents?  This is an opportunity for your child to get hands-on instructions from Steve and experience this unique form of artistic expression.  This workshop will be held on Saturday, November 16, 2013, from 9:00 am to 11:00 am at the East Kingston Public Library and is limited to 15 participant between the age of 10 to 15.  We do ask one parent to attend or sign a liability waiver.  The project will be a wooden coaster or cutting board that is appropriate for gift giving and will be treasured for years to come.  The workshop will include picking out wood pieces to create designs, gluing those designs together and finishing them.

Steve is a wood worker and the operator who makes household products out of high-quality woods, turning them on a lathe that was passed down to him from his grandfather.  His Hooksett workshop is a constant source of production and what may start as a few long sticks of wood can turn into a chess board, a vase, a clock or a bowl.  In many of his pieces, he joins different types of wood together to get different colors into his work.  Some pieces have been put together with about 1,300 segments of wood.  “It’s unique and something you won’t see elsewhere -  no one else will have anything like it.”  Check out Steve’s creations at www.mygrandfatherslathe.blogspot.com

This workshop is sponsored by The Friends of the East Kingston Public Library and is free of charge.  Space is limited so sign up now online at www.eastkingstonlibrary.org or at the library.
