Summer Reading Program - Evening Events for Families!



I am so excited to announce that this summer, we will again be able to gather for family programming as part of the Gordon-Nash Library's "Tails and Tales" Summer Reading Program. Our evening family programs will be held outside, under the maples on the lawn of the New Hampton School campus, directly across the street from the library. We could not ask for a more beautiful or convenient outdoor setting. Our presenters are excited to again perform for live audiences and all four have kindly scheduled rain dates in case of inclement weather. All programs will be held from 6:30-7:30. We ask that you bring chairs or blankets, bug spray if necessary, and water if you like. We hope you will come and join us for the fun.

Steve Blunt, Musician
Fun, upbeat songs that tickle the funny bone, warm the heart, and delight the imagination - with lots of audience participation. For young and old alike.

Steve has been one of our most popular presenters in the past. We're so excited to have him returning!

Lindsay & Her Puppet Pals
Lindsay brings her larger than life Puppet Pals to child and family audiences across New England. Filled with silliness, active audience engagement, and memorable characters, this series of charming short stories will delight the young and the young at heart!

A New Hampshire native, Lindsay also is a return performer. The puppets she designs and gives voices to are amazing! A great show for kids!

Melodious Zach!
Melodious songs and music, whimsical comedy, and science-fantasy.

He grew up in the Newfound area, went to local schools (and the GNL Summer Reading Program!), and now singer and songwriter Zach Benton is back! He's also now an actor, filmmaker, author, and a One-Man Band. As seen on NH Chronicle, Zach's shows are fun for all ages! I can't wait!

Tuesday, August 3rd.
Squam Lakes Science Center "No Two Tails Alike"

An animal's tail can serve as a rudder when swimming, help with agility during flight, or can even function like an extra hand. Meet live native wildlife ambassadors as a naturalist from the science center tells tales of the tails of some of New Hampshire's native wildlife. 

Always a favorite show with kids (and adults)!  This will be our final family event of the summer - so be sure to come and see what New Hampshire "tails" the naturalists will be bringing to share!
