Author Visit with K. Peddlar Bridges

7:00pm, Thursday, June 7th, in the Agnes Thompson Meeting Room

 K. Peddlar Bridges (aka The Roadpoet is a Rock and Roll Bikerpoet and Motorcycle Historian)
will visit the Gilman Library to talk about his book Laconia Motorcycle Week 1916, The Beginning … ,   which gives a historical view of the motorcycling in the United  States,  over one hundred years ago.  It includes a brief history of  Weirs Beach  and a chapter detailing the event in 1916 that would become  Laconia  Motorcycle Week.  One  enthusiastic review on Amazon states  that  ""Laconia  Motorcycle Week 1916" is a well-researched and  documented history of  the annual gathering of bikers in Laconia, New  Hampshire. This is also a  fun read, well-written, of personal  experiences - great stories!"

K.  Peddlar Bridges is the Publisher and  Editor of Roadpoet eMagazine, a  longtime Senior Columnist for the  Connecticut Cruise News Newspaper, The  cable TV host for Roadpoets’  Studio, featured in Beverly Mass. Ipswich  Mass and Laconia NH and the  former Poet Laureate for The Connecticut  Super Sunday Expo ®.

Alton Hannaford Helps Gilman Library Again In June 2018

We  are so excited to be chosen for the third time for the Hannaford  Community Bag program.  During the month of June, for every Community  Bag sold at the Alton Hannaford, on 80 King's Hwy, we get $1!   Participating in the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program is a great  way to continue to support us.

We appreciate all your support!  

The  program raised $38 for the library in November 2016 and then in July  2017, another $26 was raised for the Gilman Library.  So remember to  pick up your reusable bag during the month of June. 

Thank you for your help!
