Agricultural Books on Display

The group of people in town who are trying to put together an Agricultural Commission for the town of Harrisville have asked the library to put up a display of some of the many books that we have pertaining to agriculture, farming, gardening and food production. Beginning Feb. 1st the window sills are host to some of these books. A comprehensive list is available in print at the library, or can be sent as an email attachment. Contact the Library Director if you'd like a copy.

Puzzle, anyone?

This puzzle of a map of Harrisville was donated to the library. Stop by and see if you can put any pieces in place. This is a CHALLENGING puzzle!
