February Book Discussion - Wednesday, Feb. 15th

A Book Discussion Group offers individuals an opportunity to read and share ideas and opinions of books in a friendly, relaxed environment. It encourages participants to read different types of books that they might otherwise overlook, and it gives everyone a chance to enjoy talking about the books that are read.  Please consider joining our group and enjoy the lively exchange of ideas. In consideration of February as having 2 late President's birthdays and being Black History month as well, we will be reading and discussing "Destiny of the Republic". If you would like to joiin the discussion and have read the book, please join us. The group welcomes everyone. If you are not a member of the group, you are welcome to get a copy of the book on your own and join and participate.

Done (almost!) at Last!!

The construction is complete and the building is in full swing!  We are back to our regular hours and services and look forward to seeing everyone!! If you haven't seen the changes please come in and  enjoy a tour! Items and furniture are still being "settled" in their new spots and there is still a little bit of chaos while we make adaptations as needed, but we think you will agree: the newly expanded Holderness Free Library is a fantastic place to be!! Thanks to all who have made this possible!!

​We do have a "WISH LIST" for items not included or that we find we need as we re-settle: 
  • ​A small refrigerator that can be used in our kitchen/work area to keep things cold for programs and special events.
  • A card table or small table suitable for puzzles and games
  • Call the library if you can help!

Adding the finishes...
Ceilings, trims, and flooring!
As the old year ends, the construction takes on a new look!

Combining the new and the old....
The temporary walls are coming down!
Friday morning, December 16th saw a whole new look to the construction.  As the temporary walls disappeared the sunlight once again came through the library's beautiful windows. Take a peek into the new addition through the old.

Getting Closer to the Goal
Take a look at the exciting connection between the new and old!
There is amazing work going on behind the temporary wall!

The New Conference Room Takes Shape
The room now has a ramp.
Action is going on at all levels. What a sight to see!

Inside Looking Out
We are going to have some beautiful views!
Two views from the back and one from the front!

Through Rain or Snow...
Construction is going full speed ahead.
Take a look at these pictures taken on Monday, Nov. 21st.  There has been much progress going on both inside and outside. Come take a look!

Windows Going Up!
Just in time...
The windows arrived as the wind started to blow!

Pardon Our Appearance!
This is progress!
All are welcomed to visit and check out materials.
Things may look different but that just means the addition is that much closer.
