Thanks to a grant from The Tamworth Foundation, this summer we will be piloting a long-dreamed-of mobile library!
Each week, library staff will pack up and bring library materials and information out to our community. At the Tamworth Mobile Library, you may:
- sign up for a library card
- check out library materials
- choose from a selection of free books
- check-in with our Summer Reading Program
- listen to a story or song, make a fun craft project (some weeks at the Bearcamp Valley School and Children’s Center stop)*
- hop on the internet with our mobile wifi
- say hi to the librarians!
*Mobile library music, stories, crafts, and activities are funded by a NH State Library Summer Learning Grant, provided by the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation and funds administered by the NH State Library and provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. If you or a family member will need a sign language interpreter in order to participate in these programs, please notify the Cook Memorial Library in advance.
