Hampstead Library news

HAMPSTEAD —Middle and High School students are invited to attend a Book Exchange Party at the Hampstead Public Library on Thurs., January 30 at 6:30 p.m. In addition to the book exchange, this event features crafts, trivia, and food. Each participant should bring a gently used wrapped book. Stop by the library by January 24 to add your name to the guest list, and pick-up a bookplate you can personalize. Everyone who attends will be entered in a raffle for a Barnes and Noble gift card. If you have any questions, call the library at 329-6411, or email pfalconer@hampstead.lib.nh.us.

FEBRUARY FAMILY MOVIE MATINEE - Sat., February 8 at noon, the Hampstead Public Library will have a free family matinee. The feature presentation is the funny animated sequel about inventor Flint Lockwood, and how his water-to-food machine is now crossbreeding food with animals. Flint and friends must stop the “foodimals” before they wreak havoc. Library family matinees are ideal for kids who aren’t quite ready for the movie theater or for anyone who likes bargain entertainment. Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch or snack. For further details, call the library 329-6411.

FEBRUARY BOOK DISCUSSION - Copies of “Stiff: the Curious Lives of Human Cadavers” by Mary Roach are now available to check-out for the Hampstead Public Library’s Third Thursday Book Group. In her inimitable voice, Mary Roach tells the story of the sometimes strange “afterlife” of bodies. Cadavers have been involved in science’s boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. They’ve tested France’s first guillotines, ridden the Space Shuttle, helped solve the mystery of TWA Flight 800, and quietly advanced the development of new surgical procedures. Join us for the discussion of this oddly compelling, often-hilarious novel on February 20 at 1:00 p.m. Newcomers are always welcome.

FREE COMPUTER TUTOR - The Hampstead Public Library has free technology tutoring on Saturdays between 12:00-2:00 p.m. Jump start your job search, learn how to set up email or Facebook accounts, take on a tablet or eReader, get tips on downloading ebooks, and more. Call the library in advance (603-329-6411) to make a thirty-minute appointment for a one-to-one tutoring session. Use a library computer or bring your own device.
