Grow a Row

Grow a Row and the Library will deliver to Goffstown Food NetworkGot a green thumb? Enjoy your garden while helping your community this summer by participating in Grow a Row! The Goffstown Network Food Pantry's Grow a Row program encourages local gardeners to add an extra row of their favorite vegetables to their garden this year. Your vegetable surplus will be used to stock the Goffstown Network Food Pantry with healthy and fresh food for our neighbors in need.

The Library supports the project as much as possible:

  • During harvests, drop off your produce at the Library when the food pantry is closed and we’ll be sure to deliver what you bring in.
  • When you're planning and planting your extra row or two of vegetables, visit the Library to browse our great collection of gardening books.

Please consider this worthwhile community project - it’s also a great way to get kids in the garden, learning about growing and giving!

For more information: Goffstown Network Food Pantry at St. Matthew's, 7 North Mast Street, 497-3433, www.goffstownnetwork.org.

Roving Book Club - The Space Barons

Book Cover of The Space Barons by Christian DavenportExplore a Universe of Stories this summer as we take our book clubs on the road! Meet at a different, popular Goffstown location each month to discuss out-of-this-world fiction and nonfiction.

This month we will be reading The Space Barons: Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and the quest to colonize the cosmos by Christian Davenport. Contact the Library to reserve your copy today.

“Based on years of reporting and exclusive interviews with all four billionaires, The Space Barons is the ultimate drama of risk and adventure. It is also a classic story of rivals--hard-charging startups warring with established contractors and the personal clashes of the leaders of this new space movement, particularly Musk and Bezos, as they aim for the moon and Mars and beyond.” - from the cover.

Participants are encouraged to enjoy a lunch or snack from our generous host, The Village Trestle, during the discussion. No registration required.

Conversations are casual and nonacademic with room for all opinions. Everyone is welcome, teens and adults!
