The Friends are looking for some new Core Members ! After three years of being the Chairman of the Friends I am resigning to free up my time for other volunteer efforts. The Friends are looking for someone new to take up the role and bring some new friends with them to the group. The time commitment for the position is, I would say, minimal with only a few hours a month or more if you would like. Please contact the Friends or inquire at the library if you have questions. The group has been around since 1967 and is such an important part of the library, please consider helping out in this role and passing the need on to anyone you might think would be interested.

Thank you ,

~ Bob Harrison

Tonight at the Library at 7 p.m. - Container Gardening with Deanne Fortnam. FREE and open to all. Sponsored by The Friends of Library.

Deanne is a native of New England and still lives in her hometown, Nashua, New Hampshire with her husband Douglas. She is an avid birder and photographer. She is also a dedicated gardener and spends most of her summers outside with her extensive plant collection. She’s been crafting her beautifully composed perennial borders and container gardens on their Nashua property since 1978 and applies her vast knowledge of the principals of color and composition to their design. Deanne treats the gardens like a canvas and considers the color and texture of the plants to be her ‘pigments’. “The gardens are a living and ever changing composition to be enjoyed in all seasons.” Her gardens were featured on TV on New England Cable News’ program New England Dream house in the summer of 2004 and on Boston’s WCVB’s Chronicle in July of 2011. The gardens were also included on the Nashua Garden Club’s Garden Tour in July of 2005, Friends of Nashua Symphony’s Garden Tour June 2010, Garden Conservancy’s Open Days, July 2011 and will again be featured in the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days this coming July on 13th and 14th.
