Every community has an issue which an outsider might look at and say, ‘That? You’re fighting about that?’
In Gilmanton, that’s the Year-Round Library.
The library is a private non-profit, but is open to the public. It’s in a gorgeous refurbished timber-frame barn; two stories tall with old rough-hewn beams surrounded by a modern shell. It was built through private fundraising, and fundraising helps pay operating costs too.
