Thank you to everyone who participated in this past summer's Summer Reading Programs!

Fun for All Ages!

THE ADVENTURES OF GNORMAN,

THE LIBRARY GNOME OF GROTON BANK

Gnorman, a mischievous gnome from out of a fairy tale, has been visiting Groton Bank this summer, having all kinds of adventures! He's very secretive, so it's hard to spot him. Gnorman has been sending us photos along the way ~ can you guess where he's been?

JULY 1 THROUGH AUGUST 5

Each Wednesday we will post the latest photo of Gnorman on our Facebook page.
Your job is to try and guess where he is. Look carefully because he's very sneaky!!
He will be hiding around Groton Bank and should be easy to spot. Sort of.
Pick up a Where's Gnorman sheet at the library beginning June 25 (contact-free) or download a copy in your age group below.
Children birth to grade 5, turn in the completed sheet by
Monday, August 10
to be entered in our raffle drawing!
