On Tuesday night, July 22nd, the library parking lot was once again filled with “big trucks”: old trucks, diggers and loaders, a huge wrecker, an enormously tall tree removal bucket and, of course, a police car, a motorcycle and a shiny red fire truck! Area businesses and our wonderful fire and police staff finished their day working in the hot sun and then stopped by here for an additional 2 1/2 hours to allow kids of all ages to have the thrill of a life time! The horns were blaring, kids were smiling and laughing and the iPhones were constantly clicking great photos as the kids clamored all over the vehicles. This eagerly anticipated event is a real highlight to our Summer Reading Program and the families often start asking about it starting in January! So on behalf of the Pelham Public Library, I would like to extend a huge thank you to the following:
Happy Trees, LLC; Lightening Landscaping Company, Hudson Litchfield News, Woody’s Auto Repair and Towing, Pro-T-urf Landscaping Company, Pelham Police Department and Pelham Fire Department. You are our heros!
Big Truck Night! July 22nd at 6:00pm: Thanks to the generosity of the Pelham Police and Fire Departments, Woody’s Auto, and other to be announced businesses, we will have a variety of huge awesome trucks, cruisers, fire engines, and more! Stop by to climb aboard and toot the horns! All ages welcome.Weather cancellations will be announced on the website, library facebook, and Pelham message board.

All Ages Welcome!

The date for this awesome program for our “Mad Scientists”-kids ages 7 and up- is Thursday July 17th at 6:00 pm. Kids and accompanying adults are invited to come to the library to make a boat that will float! We will supply a variety of wood, canvas, wood glue, screws and nails- plus some hand and power tools- you just need to bring your creativity and boat building ideas. If time allows, we may head to the town beach to see if your creations are indeed sea worthy! If you haven’t signed up for this fun group which meets Fridays mornings at 11:00, stop by the library any time and we’ll get you on our list!
