2019 Community Read:
Celebrating Racial DiversityThe public libraries of Atkinson, Danville, Plaistow, and Sandown, along with the Timberlane Regional High School have launched the 2019 Community Read Project. We are excited to base our project on the book, Waking Up White by Debby Irving and holding book discussions in each of our libraries.
