Granny Apple (AKA Sandy Jackson) has retired and moved away to be closer to her grandchildren. As we congratulate her and wish her well in her journey, the goodbye is bitter-sweet and has left a void in our hearts.
For the last several months, we have enjoyed the performances of the "Everywhere Man" (AKA Philip Reilly), as he entertained children and families with singing, guitar music, and reading. He, too, is now no longer available, as he pursues his entertainment career.
If you are interested becoming a Whimsy Corner Volunteer Reader, please speak with a staff member.

Non-resident fees are waived for all persons employed anywhere within Alton and Alton Bay, and for any students from neighboring towns, who attend Prospect Mountain (These courtesy cards become null and void if you leave your employment or when you graduate from high school). Alton and Alton Bay property owners and residents have a free, renewable five-year membership and Summer residents have a free, renewable two-year membership. Non-residents are charged $20 per year for a yearly membership. To initiate the process online, simply click the [SIGN-UP] tab in the upper-right corner by the [LOG-IN] tab.

DO YOU NEED TO RENEW?
Library cards do expire. If you need to renew, simply call the library and answer a few security questions, and we will be happy to renew it for you over the phone. You will keep your same patron account number!
DID YOU LOSE YOUR CARD?

The "Library Logger" entered the Gilman Library and presented herself at the desk with a card which read:
"I "collect" libraries by visiting, taking photos (with permission),
and posting notes and pictures to my blog. I've been to your library,
what did I say about it? Where else have I been? Find out at www.libraryvisitsproject.blogspot.com! Yours is library #  . "
