You have to come into the Gilman Library to see and hear our new Library Mantel Clock. The clock is in memory of our beloved Library Trustee, Ruth Messier, who passed away on March 12th. It plays the Westminster Chimes and rings every quarter hour. It was beautifully crafted by New Hampshire Clocks.
