You can download your own apps and also use it for the Library’s free downloadable books and audiobooks program! Listen to your music and audiobooks or read free books on the iPad mini.

The North Conway Public Library is a privately funded library which is free and open to the public; it’s large enough to offer a broad selection and small enough to respond to the reading needs and preferences of its users.  The library receives no funding from the town of Conway, the state or the federal government; therefore, it depends on donations, corporate sponsors, and fundraisers like this.

For more information about the raffle, please call the Library at 603-356-2961.  Better yet, stop by the library on Main Street in North Conway Village to purchase your winning ticket!

Book Group: "Life after Life" by Kate Atkinson

This is an open group; everyone is welcome!

Thursday 4 December 2014 10:30am to 11:30am

The North Conway Library's Book Group is reading "Life after Life" by Kate Atkinson and will discuss it on Thursday, Dec. 4 at 10:30 a.m. at the library.

This is an open group. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you are a library member.

On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born, the third child of a wealthy English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual.

Every time Ursula Todd dies, she is born again. Each successive life is an iteration on the last, and we see how Ursula's choices affect her, those around her, and--so boldly--the fate of the 20th-century world.

Wildly inventive, darkly comic, startlingly poignant—this is Kate Atkinson at her absolute best, playing with time and history, telling a story that is breathtaking for both its audacity and its endless satisfactions . It is considered a work of literary genius.

"One of the best novels I've read this century. Kate Atkinson is a marvel. There aren't enough breathless adjectives to describe LIFE AFTER LIFE: Dazzling, witty, moving, joyful, mournful, profound."--Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl.

The Library Book Group is an open book discussion group that reads both fiction and nonfiction and meets on the first Thursday of each month at 10:30 a.m. at the library in North Conway Village.

Contact the North Conway Library at 603-356-2961 or or stop by for more information or to reserve your copy of "Life after Life."
