The Pillsbury Free Library Board of Trustees launched its first Annual Appeal in May with a mailing to all postal boxes in Warner. The Board is aiming to raise $10,000 in 2019, for projects and needs that the funds of the Town tax appropriation cannot provide.
As of June 6th, the Appeal has received 40 responses, totaling over $5000. The Board of Trustees thanks all of these generous donors. Any further donations may be sent to Pillsbury Free Library Annual Appeal, PO Box 299, Warner NH 03278.
The Road Not Taken, a fine art exhibit inspired by the poetry of Robert Frost, is at the Pillsbury Free Library through May 2019. The presentation, designed by three Derry artists, Ingeborg V. Seaboyer, Judy Krassowski and Corinne Dodge, features approximately 30 works that reflect a variety of personal interpretations of the most famous as well as some of the “less traveled” works of one of America’s most inspiring poets, Robert Frost.
