If you need a warm place to go after the library closes!
Today Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas announced that beginning this evening the City of Manchester will open an emergency warming shelter in response to the cold weather forecast. Gatsas began, “based on the frigid weather myself and city officials became concerned for queen city residents who are in need of warm shelter. With sub-zero temperatures predicted for the next few days we feel that the city must take these necessary precautions to protect our most vulnerable population of the city.”
The emergency warming shelter will open at 351 Chestnut Street. The shelter is being operated in conjunction with New Horizons for New Hampshire. Individuals in need of shelter are instructed to check-in at the New Horizons Shelter located at 199 Manchester Street. The emergency warming shelter will be staffed beginning this evening Wednesday, January 7, 2015 through Friday, January 9, 2015 from 6pm to 7:30am daily.
“We will continue to monitor the situation and keep the shelter open for additional days should the frigid temperature continue through the weekend,” concluded Gatsas.

Set in the early 1900s, this book is a coming -of-age story told in flashbacks about Rose, the untrained housekeeper hired sight unseen to care for 2 motherless boys and her brother Morris, who becomes the schoolteacher on the Montana Frontier. “Can’t cook but doesn’t bite.” So begins the newspaper ad offering the services of an “A-1 housekeeper, sound morals, exceptional disposition” that draws the hungry attention of widower Oliver Milliron in the fall of 1909. And so begins the unforgettable season that deposits the non-cooking, non-biting, ever-whistling Rose Llewellyn and her font-of-knowledge brother, Morris Morgan, in Marias Coulee along with a stampede of homesteaders drawn by the promise of the Big Ditch-a gargantuan irrigation project intended to make the Montana prairie bloom. When the schoolmarm runs off with an itinerant preacher, Morris is pressed into service, setting the stage for the “several kinds of education”-none of them of the textbook variety-Morris and Rose will bring to Oliver, his three sons, and the rambunctious students in the region’s one-room schoolhouse. A paean to a vanished way of life and the eccentric individuals and idiosyncratic institutions that made it fertile, The Whistling Season is Ivan Doig at his evocative best. Plan to join us on Thursday, January 9th at 7 PM to discuss this thoroughly diverting novel. For more information contact Sarah at 624-6560.
