Upcoming Events at the Library

Story time continues on Friday mornings from 11:15 – 11:45 am, with a new story and craft each week!

November 1: Rock Painting – 4-7 pm
Drop in for a rock-painting event – all ages welcome! Paint a rock to keep, give away or hide around town for Epping Rocks. We’ll have the painting supplies ready – bring a few favorite rocks to transform!

November 5: Digging into Native History of New Hampshire – 6:30 pm
Abenaki history has been reduced to near-invisibility as a result of conquest, a conquering culture that placed little value on the Indian experience, and a strategy of self-preservation that required many Abenaki to go “underground,” concealing their true identities for generations to avoid discrimination and persecution. Presenter Dr. Robert Goodby is a professor of Anthropology at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge. He holds a Ph.D. in anthropology from Brown University and has spent the last thirty years studying Native American Archaeological sites in New England. He is a past president if the NH Archaeological Society, a former Trustee of the Mount Kearsarge Indian Museum in Warner, and served on the New Hampshire Commission on Native American Affairs. In 2010, he directed the excavations of four 12,000 year-old Paleoindian dwelling sites in the Tenant Swamp site in Keene. This program was funded in part by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities.

November 10: Paws to Read–10:30 am-12:30 pm
Leon returns to the library for a Paws to Read program! Children of all ages are invited to spend 20-minute sessions reading out loud to Leon, in order to build confidence and have fun reading in the company of a black therapy dog that doesn't judge. Registration in advance is recommended.

November 13, 27: Children's Yoga – 4 pm
Our Children’s Yoga series continues, taught by Kripalu Yoga Teacher, Leah Pacione! This program is a great way to introduce kids to yoga, or allow them to continue a healthy habit.
