We are turning 100!

centennial

The Oscar Foss Memorial Library was donated to our town in October 1917 by Sarah Ursula Foss in honor of her husband, Oscar. Since then, it has grown from 1,242 sq ft (housing both the library and the town offices) to the beautiful 4,842 sq ft building we have today.

In honor of our 100th birthday, the library has been building up to our celebration all year by:

  • Refreshing our library with new paint and a new layout

  • Adding interesting new items to our collection. In addition to our books, dvds and audio books, we now have portable microscopes, virtual reality goggles, a ukulele, a record player and vinyl albums and a Cricut machine

  • We hid 100 “Oscars” in books all around the library, if you find one of the 10 winning Oscars, you win a $10 gift card to Gibson’s Bookstore (there are still 7 winning Oscars left!)

  • Beginning on 10/1, we will have supplies available at the library so you can paint one of 100 rocks for our Centennial that will be displayed in the gardens around the building

Our Centennial Celebration will take place on 10/21, beginning at 10 am. Please join us for:

  • WMUR Meteorologist Josh Judge will be here at 11am signing copies of his new book click HERE for more info!
