South Londonderry Library

Come to the South Londonderry Free Library during library hours to view an interesting, eclectic collection, thanks to Bill Barclay of the Upper Valley Stamp Club and a member of the Vermont Philatelic Society. On display are Commemorative Stamps from 1948, 1958,1968 and 1969; postage stamps of Pakistan, and cats on stamps from the US, Albania, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria.

Manchester Community Library
Join your neighbors and friends at Manchester Community Library (MCL) at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 21, for coffee and conversation with local police officers. There’s no agenda or speeches, just a chance to ask questions, voice concerns, give kudos and get to know the officers of the Manchester Police Department. At the risk of reinforcing a stereotype, there will indeed be free donuts and coffee on hand in the Cafe Commons.
