Harvey Mitchell Memorial Library
Press release for week of January 9th, 2012

Do you like to knit? Do you have a knitting project sitting on your needles that you never seem to find time for? The library will be offering a time and place to knit with friends on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month in the children’s room. Bring your own needles and yarn and enjoy the company of other knitters without the distractions that present themselves at home. The first Knit Night will be on Wednesday, January 11th beginning at 7:00 pm. For more information, contact program coordinator Marjorie Pim at marjpim@yahoo.com .

January 13th is the date for the first Pajama Night of 2012. HMML’s Pajama Night invites children ages 2-8 and their families to wear their coziest PJs to the library for crafts, a scavenger hunt through the library, snacks, songs and stories. This month the theme is gingerbread, so there will be some well-known stories and some sweet projects. Pajama Night begins at 6:30 and runs until 7:45 on the 2nd Friday of most months. February’s Pajama Night will be a movie night on Feb. 10th featuring the newest release from Disney’s Buddies series. Families attending PJ Nights are asked to bring a snack to share so there’s enough for everyone at the snack table.

Coming on Friday January 20th is the premiere of “Charging Lead”, a short film set during the American Civil War directed by Epping seventh grader Tyler Wilkins and featuring 2 small brigades of Epping Middle School students. The first screening will be at 6:30 with opportunities for discussion with the cast and crew before subsequent screenings. The NH Civil War Roundtable will have its monthly meeting at Town Hall that same night beginning at 7:15. The public is always welcome.

The Trustees of the Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library are forming a planning committee for the renovation and expansion of the library building. Interested adult Epping residents who can commit to this project for approximately three years should contact director Bradley Green at 679-5944 or harvmitch@gmail.com. The library needs help from those who know it best to grow into all the town needs it to be.

Epping’s public library is open Monday – Friday from 10 am to 8 pm and Saturday 10 to 2, but will be closed on Monday, January 16th in honor of Civil Rights Day. For more information call 679-5944, or visit  www.eppinglibrary.com .
