Book Scholarship – June 2 deadline
The Friends of the Dudley-Tucker Library announce the availability of up to three $300 scholarships to be used for books for higher education. Each scholarship will be made payable to the recipient’s college bookstore for the purchase of books. To be eligible, each applicant must be pursuing a post high school education, must maintain a legal residence in Raymond, and must hold a valid Dudley-Tucker Library card. Applications are available at the library and must be returned to the Main Desk no later than Friday, June 2 at 5 p.m.

Story Time
Story Time takes place Tuesdays from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. and 1:15 to 2 p.m., and Fridays from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. If there is a two-hour delay or cancellation for the Raymond School District due to inclement weather, Story Time will be cancelled for that day. To check on Story Times, call the library at 895-7058.

Knitting Group
The Knitting Group meets in the library the first and third Thursdays of each month at 10 a.m. This is not a teaching class, just a group that knits and crochets and chats.

Museum Passes - Visit the Dudley-Tucker Library website for passes to Strawbery Banke Museum, The SEE Science Center, American Independence Museum, and The New Hampshire Farm Museum.


****** Summer Reading Program ******

Registration dates will be from June 26th through July 14th, with the program ending on August 4th.

Are you looking for something fun to do this summer? Come to the Dudley-Tucker Library and join our summer reading program. The theme this year is “Build a Better World”.  All Raymond children, ages 3 through grade 6 may participate.

There will be prizes and special weekly programs. A wrap-up party will be held on August 11th at the Raymond High School. Entertainment will be provided by Steve Corning’s Extraordinary Variety Show. His show is partially funded by a Kids, Books and the Arts grant. Funding for the Kids, Books and the Arts event is provided by the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation, CHILIS, Cogswell Benevolent Trust, and is supported in part by a grant from the NH State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts as well as funds administered by the NH State Library and provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

If you need a sign language interpreter for the performance, please call the library at 895-7057 or send an email message to one week in advance.

For more information call the Children’s Room at 895-7058.

The Robert Frost Farm
Frost, one of the nation’s most acclaimed poets whose writings are said to be the epitome of New England.

A winner knows how much he still has to learn, even when considered an expert by others.
A loser wants to be considered an expert by others before he has learned enough to know how little he knows.
~ Sydney Harris ~
