We support remote-learning and respect social-distancing. In response to COVID-19, the library building is currently closed until further notice. We have not yet set the office telephone to call-forwarding, but hope to provide that service to you. Meanwhile, the Gilman Library Staff will be operating remotely and will be available to respond to text or email from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to answer any questions, and to provide web-based services assistance. We are sorry for your inconvenience and wish you to remain safe and healthy. Our digital library never closes. If you are a resident of Alton and Alton Bay, and you do not already hold a library card, please apply for a temporary virtual card. Please also utilize our free wireless, from your inside your vehicle, in our parking lot.
All due dates for material items currently checked out of the library are extended until the library re-opens. All library materials should be kept by patrons until the library re-opens. Our book drop is closed.
We invite you to continue or begin the use of our web-based and digital services. Please note that the New Hampshire State Library has also suspended all Interlibrary loan van delivery service until further notice. All items currently checked out and circulating now have extended due dates and will be renewed until we re-open. PLEASE KEEP YOUR ITEMS UNTIL WE RE-OPEN.
If you are a resident of Alton and Alton Bay and do not have a library card, we invite you to apply for your 30-DAY Virtual Card. Click the button below to apply.
