This month marks the One-Year Anniversary of the Southern New Hampshire Library Cooperative. One year ago, local libraries Plaistow, Sandown and the Kimball Library in Atkinson formed a coop to share materials and resources to benefit patrons from all three towns, including the option of accessing the three collections through a shared Koha catalog . In honor of this anniversary, the library is expanding our Monday Tech Talks (at 12:00 and 6:30 p.m. every Monday) to feature options available through our Koha catalog. Come to Tech Talks to learn more about your eReader and/or about how to use the Koha library system.

Last call for VHS tapes! The library is selling our remaining VHS tapes at the cheap price of ten for $1.00. If you use a VHS player, don’t miss your chance to pick from the selection.
