PLAISTOW — Visit the Plaistow Public Library during the month of February to see the artwork of award winning local artist Jim Collins. The paintings represent all kinds of wildlife and are quite stunning to see. Jim’s work has been featured many times over on conservation stamps for the State of NH. We will also have on display a rather eclectic collection of rubber ducks, courtesy of Nancy Burke.

Come see our new Giant Bookworm! He needs a name and Miss Cara invites the kids to submit names to name him. He’s the biggest in the world – we think!
