The Story Behind the Understory

Join us on Friday, September 8, at noon in the library, as we talk with New Hampshire author Tim Horvath about his book Understories, and about the writing process itself.  Tim teaches creative writing at the New Hampshire Institute of Art, and at workshops internationally.

Copies of the book are available in the library.  Bring your lunch!

Understories reviews:
“Philosophical, sometimes whimsical, darkly funny, thought provoking, intense, evocative.”
                                                         — Bookconscious

“The writing is in turns vibrant and imaginative, eloquent and thoughtful, and lush and whimsical.”
                                                         — Books Speak Volumes

A Note from Melissa Laplante,
Director of Learning Resources,
White Mountain Community College

I am delighted to be here at the White Mountains Community College. I recently moved to Gorham from Bartlett, NH by way of Portland, Maine and Heidelberg, Germany. I love reading, exploring technology, teaching and learning, and I am lucky to be able to do all these things here at The White Mountains Community College.

I received a Master of Science Degree in Library and Information from Simmons College. My library experience is in public libraries as well as K-8 school libraries and library instruction.

When I am not in the library I am likely reading, hiking, skiing, cooking, traveling, or exploring the North Country. I enjoy getting to know the White Mountains Community College community- come on in and say hi and please come to library with any questions you may have about the library or an upcoming research project. We are here to help!

Pack the Picnic Basket

July is the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors.  Hiking, barbecuing, and picnics with family and friends make time outside even better.


Don't forget to pack the blanket and picnic snacks!


Stop by the library to find these, and more books to help you have fun in the great outdoors.
