The London Olympics are almost here! Take a look at our July display and catch up on some Olympic history, read a novel that takes place in London, or watch Chariots of Fire.
And don’t forget to participate in our graph of which Olympic sports you participate in. I'm curious to see if we have any Amherst residents who do archery, fencing, or boxing...
For the month of June, we'll have a selection of travel literature, both fiction and nonfiction, travel guides, DVDs and more. Going anywhere this year for vacation? Been anywhere interesting recently? Pin the map and show us where.
In New Hampshire Means Party Time In the Garden
It is said that you can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt. Amherst Town Library is here to help you bury your troubles and “party” in the garden. In that spirit we invite you to stop by our May gardening display table near the circulation desk. You will find books, videos, magazines and more to inspire, motivate, and educate you. As an added bonus there will be a raffle drawing each week for the month of May. County Stores, Agway of Milford, The Garden Party Boutique and Trombly Gardens have generously joined with us to reward you with a chance to win one of our weekly prizes.
April is National Poetry Month and at the Library we are celebrating the ways poetry brings pleasure and sustains us!
Take a look at our Staff "Poetree" blooming with some favorite poems of our Staff, get inspired with our Poem of the Week, dip into our Take a Poem...Leave a Poem... bowl of poems, or check out one our many poetry books.
