This year, we are once again the happy recipients of donated library passes from the Libby Museum, New Hampshire’s oldest and only remaining natural history museum. Built in 1912, the museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Libby Museum overlooks Lake Winnipesaukee, at 755 North Main Street, Wolfeboro, and keeps regular hours Wednesday through Sunday from July 15th to Labor Day. Please consider supporting the Libby Museum, as they are currently conducting The Libby Museum Restoration Project. The Town of Wolfeboro and the Friends of the Libby are seeking to raise funds to restore the main building and introduce insulation and a heating/cooling system and build a 1000 square foot addition that will stabilize the main building. The addition will be for mechanical systems, storage, a meeting room, and an office. Details of how you can support the Libby Museum website can be found on their website at https://www.thelibbymuseum.org/. If you would like a Libby museum pass for your family, you may reserve online though our catalog, or call the Gilman Library at 875-2550.
