Philosophy and art at the Belmont Library


April 28, 2021
BELMONT — The library has arranged a NH Humanities book discussion in place of our regular Thursday book group. SNHU professor Dr. Kiki Berk will be leading a discussion on Massimo Pigliucci's "How to be a Stoic: Using ancient philosophy to live a modern life." Get in touch with the library for the link to the meeting on May 13 at 1 p.m.

We here at the Belmont Library are trying something a little different for storytime right now. There's a month long themed display- coming up, National Physical Fitness Month—take one or two books and a craft/STEM kit. Wednesday mornings we'll post a short video (roughly five minutes) on the library's Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Choose from two take n' make projects in May. Both faux watercolor surprise and decoupage flower pots come with all the supplies needed to make these decorations. Stop by the library or call for curbside pick up to make these fun projects your own.

Our Friday Fiction book group meets in person outside if the weather cooperates on Friday, May 21 at 10:30 a.m. to discuss "The Masterpiece" by Fiona Davis. In this captivating novel, New York Times bestselling author Fiona Davis takes readers into the glamorous lost art school within Grand Central Terminal, where two very different women, fifty years apart, strive to make their mark on a world set against them. Ebooks and audiobooks are available through nh.overdrive.com with your library card; physical copies are available at the library. Contact the library for meeting information.

The Library will be closed Monday, May 31 for the holiday observance.

The Belmont Public Library is open six days a week and any time at www.belmontpubliclibrary.org, serving the community with books, digital resources, and cultural programming. In 2018, the library celebrated 90 years in the same building and 125 as Belmont's community library.
