July 10th Celebration
Celebrate Your Historic Library

All are welcome to help celebrate the 86th year of historic Belmont Library on Thursday, July 10 at 5:00 p.m. Hosted by Library Trustees, the community event features unveiling of a National Register of Historic Places plaque, a gift from the Heritage Commission and welcome reception for new Library Director Rebecca Albert. Appointed last fall, she has previously served at the New Hampshire State Library and Tilton School in a distinguished professional career. Fourth graders from the Belmont Elementary School sent early greetings, signed by all of the students and delivered by class representatives.  The "new” library building was a gift to Belmont by George and Walter Duffy, owners of the Belmont Hosiery Company and dedicated in 1928. That building and other locations on Main Street have provided reading and other materials to citizens for more than a century, and currently serve over 1500 patrons, according to Library Trustee Chairman Mary Charnley.
