Bird Watching Kit


Bird Watching Kit

We’ve added a new item to our “Lending Library”!

Thanks to a generous donation from Steve and Christine Rand the library now has a set of Vortex binoculars in a carry case with a Sibley’s Backyard Birds of the Northeast Guide to help you spot and identify birds.

 Check out the kit and have fun spotting local species just in time for the

Great Backyard Bird Count.

To reserve, call the library (603)673-1353 or email dalandlibrary@comcast.net.


The library will be closing early on Wednesday, Jan. 25th due to the incoming storm.

We will hope to open tomorrow with power and heat.
