In a Small NH Town, A New Library, But No Librarian

GILMANTON, N.H. (AP) – Gilmanton will remain the only town in New Hampshire without a year-round library after voters rejected spending $75,000 to hire a part-time librarian and assistant.

The town has a new library that was built from donated goods, money and labor, but it needs more money for staff in order to open. Those who voted against the request Saturday said they felt misled by library campaigners who pledged to do it all without using town funds .
