EDIE's Storytime

Join EDIE, our colorful unicorn puppet, for a fun new Monday morning storytime that celebrates Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Equality.  We will share stories that show us humanity's beautiful differences, celebrate all kinds of families, and help us discover that our uniqueness can bring us closer together, rather than separate us.  We will learn about children, families, cultures and languages that are like our own and are different from our own, in a positive, joyful environment. ALL are welcome.  A half hour of stories will be followed by independent social time, allowing the children (and their caregivers) to play together.

Trick or Treat Book Giveaway

Thanks to our Bookapalooza grant and to generous donors, the library team will once again be out on the lawn giving away brand new books to Jaffrey’s children for Trick or Treat. We have hundreds of books to give away, starting at 4 pm but when they’re gone, they’re gone.
Last year, we funded this event with the help of a host of individuals who wrote checks big and small, and this year the community turned out again in support of celebrating literacy. Let’s try to make this an annual event! Thank you!!!

Thanks to our Bookapalooza grant and to generous donors, the library team will once again be out on the lawn giving away brand new books to Jaffrey’s children for Trick or Treat. We have hundreds of books to give away, starting at 4 pm but when they’re gone, they’re gone.
Last year, we funded this event with the help of a host of individuals who wrote checks big and small, and this year the community turned out again in support of celebrating literacy. Let’s try to make this an annual event! Thank you!!!

Genre Tasting

This multi-age book club allows participants in Grades 2 -12 to choose their own title in a specified genre, read it, and share it with the group in a discussion facilitated by your librarians. Your librarians will also choose a book in that genre with an accompanying recipe that we'll all prepare (and taste) during our book tasting discussion. Both Ms. Andrea and Ms. Julie have severe food allergies but are enthusiastic cooks, making us the perfect pair to lead this food and book tasting venture. Due to the nature of this program, children under age 12 must have a caregiver in the library during the program. Please note that the registration form requires all participants to indicate any food allergies or sensitivities.

NH Humanities: Not In Front of the Children: The Art and Importance of Fairy Tales

Not In Front of the Children: The Art and Importance of Fairy Tales

"Once upon a time. . ." is a magical phrase that promises the beginning of a memorable story. Where do our fairy tales come from, what do they tell us about ourselves and our history? Why have they been censored and changed and how have they retained their currency and popularity today? Ingrid Graff discusses these fascinating tales and why we should keep telling them to our children. Participants are encouraged to bring their favorite fairy tale to the presentation.

Ingrid Graff has been a long-time speaker for the New Hampshire Humanities and is a recipient of the William L. Dunfey Award. She has lectured for many different organizations, including The Jane Austen Society of North America and Road Scholar, and has taught classes for Granite State College. Graff was the school librarian for Gorham, NH for 10 years and won the NHEMA Award for Excellence in Library Services in 2007.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Jaffrey Library, and supported by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities.  This program is free and open to the public.

Off the Cuff - Music to Swing By

The library is pleased to bring another musical event to the HCS Friendly Meals program at the Jaffrey VFW, this time to precede the Thanksgiving feast!

Off the Cuff is a semi-acoustic instrumental and vocal group, interpreting great songs from the 20s to the 21st Century.
Off The Cuff Musicians for this event include:

  • Pamela Smith – Guitar, Harmonica, percussion, vocals.
  • Jonas Taub – Guitars, Dobro, vocals, and featuring
  • Andy Chapman – Clarinet and Vocals

Off The Cuff has been delighting audiences across southern New Hampshire and surrounding areas for 20 years. Incorporating elements of jazz, swing, blues, bluegrass, rock, folk and world music styles, Off The Cuff infuses its own special blend of vocal and instrumental harmony into every song to reinvent it as something new and personal. Once this is done, the song is “Cuffed” – given that Off The Cuff touch.

Audiences love this music! Whether an original tune or an old standard, a pop tune or a nugget by some little known songwriter, the music touches a familiar chord in everyone, whether they grew up dancing to the big bands or to rock bands. It is music that each generation has managed to share; a part of the American musical soul. The music is upbeat, energetic and fun, and The Cuffers have a great time playing and interacting with the audience.

This event is free and open to the public.

Please contact HCS Friendly Meals if you would like to make a reservation for the meal following the music program: 352-2253 or (800) 541-4145

Friends Holiday Tea

On Wednesday, December 4 from 2 to 4, all Friends of the Jaffrey Library, patrons and staff, and booklovers are invited to the 13th Annual Holiday Tea. The event will be held in the refurbished local history rooms on the History floor.  Tea parties are a staple in the works of many beloved authors, so it seems only fitting that the Friends Holiday Tea has become a festive tradition that brings people together for tea, sandwiches, cookies, cakes, and conversation.
At 3 pm, everyone will move to the Bean Room on the main floor for a brief annual meeting. The afternoon will close with storytelling for all ages by Library Director Julie Perrin and Youth Services Librarian Andrea Connolly.
The Jaffrey Friends of the Library is a nonprofit group that works to strengthen, promote, and support our public library. It is committed to helping the library meet the diverse needs of the community and open doors to lifelong learning and discovery for everyone.
In the past few years, the Friends have helped fund WIFI hotspots, the Mahjong program, museum passes, a charging station, special furniture, reference databases, and a button maker for The Lab. The Friends also present at least two to three programs for adults each year.
Annual dues are currently $15 a year. Forms are available at the circulation desk. Dues and donations to the Friends are tax deductible.
ALL ARE WELCOME!

Both Ms. Andrea and Ms. Julie have severe food allergies but are enthusiastic cooks, making us the perfect pair to lead this food and book tasting venture. Due to the nature of this program, children under age 12 must have a caregiver in the library during the program. Please note that the registration form requires all participants to indicate any food allergies or sensitivities.
