Library Highlights
CPL is holding a blood drive May 2nd working with the American Red Cross. Visit to register or visit this library page and we will follow up with you to schedule an exact time.

April is National Poetry Month and the Conway Public Library is holding their annual poetry contest! The deadline for a poetry submission is April 27, 2015 by 8:00 p.m. Judges will have a week to review and decide upon winners by age. There will be one winner and one runner up in each category, judged by a group of local volunteer judges with literary knowledge or expertise. Poems will be judged (age appropriately) on form, word usage, poetic elements, language conventions, effort, and illustration is always a wonderful addition.

Prizes are gift certificates or products donated by local businesses.  Winners will be notified by telephone before May 3rd. Winners may choose to read their works or have an adult read instead at our poetry celebration on Monday, May 4th at 6:00 p.m. Refreshments will be provided. We will be inviting Valley Vision to film the event. For more information please call 447-5552 or email Tessa at

Covered wooden bridges have been a vital part of the NH transportation network, dating back to the early 1800s. Given NH’s myriad streams, brooks, and rivers, it’s unsurprising that 400 covered bridges have been documented. Often viewed as quaint relics of a simpler past, they were technological marvels of their day. It may be native ingenuity and NH’s woodworking tradition that account for the fact that a number of nationally-noted covered bridge truss designers were NH natives. Glenn Knoblock discusses covered bridge design and technology, and their designers, builders, and associated folklore in the Ham Community Room, April 29, at 7 p.m.

The Library Board of Trustees will meet in the Ham Community Room, Monday, May 4, 2015 at 4:00 P.M.
