A new season of Storytime, Fridays  at 3:30. 


September is National Library Card Sign-up Month! If you don't already have a card and you live in Alstead or Langdon, come on over - your card is free! And information is valuable. Don't live in Alstead or Langdon? You can still get a card with a $20 Non-Resident Fee.


Shedd-Porter Memorial Library is excited to announce that we are planning a bathroom renovation! We are politely asking for donations towards these improvements. A station has been set up at our front desk for monetary donations. Any amount makes a difference!
