Skipping Christmas by John Grisham

Please join us on Wednesday, November 12 at 10:30 a.m. for our next great book discussion, featuring John Grisham's Skipping Christmas.

Skipping Christmas takes a comical look at the chaos and frenzy that have become part of our holiday tradition.  Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded malls, no corny office parties, no fruitcakes, no unwanted presents. That's just what Luther and Nora Krank have in mind when they decide that, just this once, they'll skip the holiday altogether!

Grisham's lighthearted tale is the perfect primer to the hectic holiday season and is sure to remind us what the holidays are truly about.

Check out some reviews at Library Thing or read an excerpt on Grisham's website.

As always, we have a number of copies available for pickup in a wide variety of formats (regular print, large print, audiobook, and ebook) at the main Circulation Desk. Grab your copy today!

Can you help?

Can you help?
Our little furry friends from the NHSPCA are in need of
pet supplies, food and even office supplies. During the
month of October, the Library is accepting donations for
our local branch of the Society for the Protection of Cruelty
to Animals in Stratham. If you would like to help, please

bring your donation to the library and help our little
furry friends. No cages, please.
Thank you for your kindness!
