---- — PLAISTOW —April is National Poetry Month! Come in with a poem you’ve written about the library and enter our contest. Three winners will be chosen from ages 1-12, 13-18, and 19 and up, on May 1. Prizes will be announced.

All are cordially invited to celebrate Carli Malette’s retirement on Thurs., April 11 at the Plaistow Library (Mary Nelson Room) from 3:00-6:00 p.m. Carli has served the Town of Plaistow in various capacities for over twenty years as both a Recreation Director and member of the Board of Selectmen. The Town greatly appreciates all of her hard work and dedication that has allowed the Town’s Recreation Department and other aspects of the Town government to flourish. Because of her the Town now not only has an excellent Summer Children’s Recreation Program now located at “Carli’s Way” (51 Old County Road) but also offers programs and opportunities for all age groups. The Town will surely miss Carli Malette and her “Can Do” attitude.

Join Miss Nancy for Silly Science on April 17, from 4:00-5:00 p.m. Ages 5-8 meet every third Wednesday of the month to perform wacky experiments, learning activities and more in the wonderful world of science. Sign up online to reserve your space.

What if you only had one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life? The Teen Voices book group will begin reading “Before I Fall” by Lauren Oliver which poses these questions for its teen heroine Samantha Kingston. Come by the library to pick up a copy of the book. Teen Voices meets every fourth Wednesday. The book will be discussed during school vacation week on April 24.

School vacation week activities are listed on our website: registration has begun. Visit www.plaistowlibrary.com to reserve your space early.

The Friends of the Library are holding a drawing for an iPad Touch—tickets are $1.00 each or six for $5.00. The winner will be picked on May 11 during the Friends’ book sale.

A beautiful and eclectic display of carousel horses is on display at the library courtesy of Robyn Beaulieu. Visit the library to see this collection during the month of April.
