Plaistow Library News

By Lara L. Croft

PLAISTOW - The Plaistow Library would like to thank the Friends for a very successful Vendor Fair on November 17. Five hundred (500) people attended and more vendors were represented than ever before. The Friends’ hard work, commitment and dedication is greatly valued by the library and the community—If you are interested in becoming a Friend, ask at the front desk for more information. For the month of November, the library is a drop-off for Rockingham Community Action and Plaistow Exchange Club. Please bring non-perishable food items or toiletries.

Jeff Warner returns to the library November 29th at 7:00 p.m., courtesy of the Plaistow Historical Society and NH Humanities Council. In his program “Songs of Old New Hampshire”, he draws heavily on the repertoire of traditional singer Lena Bourne Fish (1873-1945) of Jaffrey and Temple, New Hampshire. These ballads, love songs and comic pieces reveal the experiences and emotions of daily life in the days before movies, sound recordings, and for some, books. Songs offer views of pre-industrial New England and a chance to hear living artifacts from the 18th and 19th centuries. This event is free and open to the public, please sign up at the library website if you plan to attend.

Rick Blair’s popular cooking class meets December 3, at 6:45 p.m. He will be teaching how to make cheesecakes using a food processor to perfect the texture and even flavor. He will make three different recipes in advance and show how to make one during the class. This class is free and open to the public; please sign up at the library website if you plan to attend.

In November, library volunteer Sharon Neiman has arranged a display of quilts of her own handiwork on our walls and display cases. View images on Facebook and our website, and come in person for a closer look. Are you an artist who would like to display art at the library? Reserve a month this fall to hang your art by calling the library. Or if you have a collection to share in our glass display cases, let us know.
