The Hooksett ORT closure is scheduled from 9 p.m. today until 5:30 a.m. tomorrow. The Hampton ORT closure is scheduled tomorrow from 9 p.m. until 5:30 a.m. on Thursday.

Library Friends change pass policy
KINGSTON — The Friends of the Kingston Community Library have updated their policy on passes for museums and accredited zoos.
In place of the passes, they are now reimbursing up to 50 percent of the ticket price and up to $20 per family group visit. Forms are now available at the desk for patrons to complete and submit along with a viable receipt of payment.
Amusement and theme parks are not covered; however, the new policy dramatically increases the number of places a family may visit and receive a reimbursement.
