"Thank you for an amazing summer."
Now that the summer has come to an end, my kids have read a combined 4,000 minutes. I couldn’t imagine my son or daughter ever reading that much, especially during the summer. Along with all of the reading they were able to attend events hosted by the library. They got to learn all about Whales & Seals, attended a movie matinee, enjoyed a family game night and got to be a pirate for a couple of hours. We were also invited to the Whale Mobile and mosaic art, tie dye and an underwater tea party, but couldn’t make it. They are all fun times we are sorry that we missed.
All in all, this is one of the best summers we ever had. We can’t thank the staff at Goffstown Public Library enough for all that they do. Patti was our main contact, but we are so grateful for everyone who works there. The effort and care you put into making each and every day an event filled one for my kids, is so appreciated. I can only hope that the library can continue these events every year and be able to expand their already beautiful library so more of the community can enjoy it."
