From the Executive Director:

(Posted Monday, Feb. 13, 2017) Even though the Laconia Public Library has opened, today, the cancellation of tonight’s IOOF program remains in force; a new date will be announced for the program.

(Posted Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017) I thought that with this next storm due to end around lunch or early afternoon Monday, we could still do the IOOF Symposium. The problem seems to be the 1-2 feet of snow and ongoing 40 mph winds forecast to precede our event. Again, city cleanup of Library grounds ends at 3:30 and there’s no guarantee that the building will even be open. Please add to the mix the consideration of our speakers traveling from Gilmanton, Loudon, Weare, and you get the idea. Our participants and members continue to expect a certain degree of common sense in these matters. The program is being canceled/postponed yet again.

We’re already looking at appropriate IOOF third and fourth alternative backup dates for late winter and early spring. Stay tuned. The Library also continues to reschedule their winter programs.

The Presidents Day Recognition remains intact for Wednesday 2/22 at 7p.m. Please note that an informal gathering with refreshments will begin between 6-6:30. Our short Annual Meeting w/election of officers will be at 6:45. The recognition will begin at 7 sharp and probably wrap up by 7:45. We expect to close with the Library at 8 and say good night to patrons at that time.

As we move to inform all interested parties, please help us when you can in the coming hours. If you’re aware of someone who may have indicated their intention to join us Monday, let them know it’s off.

We hope to be back at you with another schedule this coming week. Thank you for your continued support and we expect our Tuesday 11-1 Water St. session to be held as usual on 2/14.

Stay warm
