Kids Reading Challenge

Manchester Library Hosts Kids’ Reading Challenge

March is National Reading Month. Encourage your child or teen to celebrate with the Manchester District Library by enrolling them in the library’s March Reading Challenge. Starting March 1 and running all month. All children who meet their (totally-achievable) reading goals will be entered in a drawing for a terrific prize! They get to (re)discover the joy of reading…and have fun. You get to see your children reading for pleasure (always satisfying). And the library gets to do our part by encouraging and motivating children to improve their literacy. It’s a win-win-win.

Want more info? Come to the library for details and a reading log.readingmonth

Estate Planning Presentation: Sat, Jan. 27; 10:30am-1:30pm

What’s Your Plan? The Manchester Library Hosts Free Estate Planning Presentation.

Let’s talk estate planning.

No, please, don’t run away. We get it. Estate planning isn’t the easiest subject to tackle. It’s all so complicated. Wills.Trusts…what’s the difference? And there are so  many other things you would probably rather do on a Saturday… such as read the latest bestseller or watch the big football game. Right?

Well, if you’ve been procrastinating because you’re overwhelmed or don’t know where to begin, your Manchester District Library has great news. On January 27th, 2018, we will be hosting a presentation on estate planning by Laurie Brewis of TGQ Law Firm.

Do you believe estate planning is just for the over-sixty crowd, the wealthy, or families with kids?  You would be…wrong. Come on in. Find out why. And find out what you have to gain by sitting down and making some concrete plans for the future.

Here’s a little hint: you have everything to gain and nothing to lose by joining us.

The details:
What: Take the Future Head-On: Estate Planning Made Easy by Laurie Brewis
When: January 27th, 2018 10:30am-1:30pm
Where: Manchester District Library, Village Room (Lower Level)
