The Conway Area Lions Club has partnered with the Conway Public Library for a valuable, fun and free event for families. Kids will have the opportunity to receive eye screenings in a fun way, enjoy a themed story time with Lions Club volunteers and meet the Lions Club mascot on Saturday, Dec. 7, in the Ham Room of the library. Eye screenings and activities will begin at 10:30 a.m. and story time will begin at 11:15 a.m. Children will also receive coloring books and supplies.

The goal of the Lions Club (Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nation’s Safety) is, community service.

To learn more about the Conway Area Lions Club, go to conwayarealions.org.

All are invited to the library for A Holiday Evening with Judy Pancoast on Dec. 9 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. New Hampshire’s own Grammy nominee, Judy Pancoast, will open the program by singing some of her original Christmas songs, and will then read to you from her brand new novel based on her hit song, “The House on Christmas Street.”

This is a program that will be enjoyed by everyone from teens to seniors. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. Find out more about Pancoast at judypancoast.com.

Another season for giving thanks is before us, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank our local Conway area community for supporting the library.

Together this year, we continued to strengthen relationships, watched children grow, welcome new babies, celebrated completing the reading of “1,000 Books Before Kindergarten” and implemented new programs for all ages and interests. We have also faced challenges, learned about differences and the human experience through our 2019 One Book, One Valley community read, “Becoming Nicole,” by Ellis Nutt, said goodbye to valued community members who have passed on (and we are fortunate to have known) and been welcomed into schools, day cares, and the new Adult Day Center for interactive outreach programs.

The Conway Library community could not run without the amazing team of board members and volunteers that donate their time and effort every week shelving materials, cleaning, organizing, collaborating,fundraising, building and mending library furniture, contributing creative ideas, and continuing to be a reliable presence. I am also extremely grateful for the stellar team that I work with. I’m feeling very fortunate.
