This is the fourth year that Goffstown Public Library in New Hampshire will be participating in the September Project. In past years, GPL has hosted some creative and inspiring events (such as Eyes Wide Open). This year, library coordinator Sandy Whipple and her colleagues will be hosting a number of truly remarkable events.
Here are a few of the events:
Author Thomas “Doc” Middleton book signing and discussion of Saber’s Edge: A Combat Medic in Ramadi Iraq (Sept. 9)
“Thank a Hero” Card Making – Kids of all ages are invited to create a “thank-you” card to send to servicemen and women, or to local heroes such as firemen, policemen, and public works employees. (Sept.11)
National POW-MIA Recognition Day Display – Stop in to view The Missing Man Table, a somber display remembering thousands of service men and women whose whereabouts remain unknown. (Sept. 18)
Education in Exile: Literacy Instruction in a Tibetan Refugee Community in the Himalayas with Professor Carolyn Gamtso (Sept. 30)
For the complete list of events check out the GPL events calendar.
As well as hosting these events throughout September, GPL will be open for twenty-four hours on Sept. 11. Also, GPL will be sponsoring a helmet liner knit a thon during their 24-hour opening on 9/11. The knitting has already begun in places as far away as Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Amazing things are happening over there in Goffstown N.H and we look forward to hearing how these events turn out!
