Tour Doug Towle’s House
Calling all old house lovers, or just plain curious folks, don’t miss out on this!

Step back nearly 350 years, tour the Farley Garrison House. Long time Gilmanton resident, Doug Towle, invites you and your friends for libation and hor d’ouevres as he shares his newest-old project on Frisky Hill. Included in the tour is the 1665 saltbox, originally from Billerica, MA, and painstakingly restored to museum  quality, a fully restored and furnished Gilmanton one-room schoolhouse, an 18th Century barn and a corn crib.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity! All proceeds will benefit the newly opened Gilmanton Year Round Library located at 1385 NH Route 140, across from the Gilmanton Elementary School.

Two tours are available: 1:30 p.m.-4:00 p.m. or 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Reservations are required. Donation is $50.00 per person. Please contact either Liz Bedard at 528-1896 or or Sue Barr at 267-1905 or Deadline for reservations is October 10th.



Gilmanton Corner Public Library

Dan Brown’s newest book, “The Lost Symbol,” is now available for borrowing and one can find it on our New Arrivals shelf!! As we know, it will be a popular book, and if it is not available when you come in, have your name and phone number placed on the waiting list.

A gift of twenty-two (22) National Geographic nature videos were just given to our Library. As well as being educational, they are very entertaining as their camera work is always awesome.

Just a reminder that our next book sale, along with baked goods, daffodil bulbs, and apples will be Saturday, October 10 between 9:00 and noon. Stop by for a cup of coffee also.
