15 Little Libraries Scheduled to be Installed Across Manchester

Published: 10/31/2019 12:00 PM - Mayor's Press Room Announcements

Today, Mayor Joyce Craig announced a partnership with Girls at Work, Inc. to install fifteen miniature libraries across the community. Built by Girls at Work, Inc. volunteering during the Granite United Way’s Day of Caring, these little libraries are scheduled to be installed in parks, near schools, and at City Hall.

Made possible through support from Girls at Work, the Manchester Parks and Recreation Division and Manchester City Library, the fifteen little libraries will be a shared resource aimed to encourage and inspire a love of reading and community engagement. 

“This will be a wonderful resource to children across our city, and I’m thrilled to be involved in this project,” said Mayor Joyce Craig. “I want to thank Girls at Work, the Parks and Recreation Division and the Library for their partnership and support for this effort. By making books accessible to children and students across Manchester, we are able to continue promoting early literacy to our young learners.”

“Girls at Work was extremely excited to partner with the City of Manchester on Granite United Way Day of Caring. We had the opportunity to teach volunteers from Acadia Insurance, Parkland Medical Center, St. Mary's Bank, Sheehan Phinney Bass and Green and City Year how to build little libraries that will be displayed around the city,” said Elaine Hamel, Founder and Program Director, Girls at Work, Inc. “It's really fun to see the bonding happen with adults in an unfamiliar environment working toward a common goal of building for others. Thanks to everyone who came together to make it happen, and thanks to Granite United Way Day of Caring for bringing so many volunteers together to invest their time in our community.”

“The Manchester City Library supports literacy efforts in our community which is why we are proud to be partnering with Girls at Work, the City Parks and Recreation Division and the Mayor’s Office to support the installation of little libraries around our city,” said Denise van Zanten, Director, Manchester City Library.  “Little libraries play an integral role in communities by promoting literacy and providing access to materials for all ages.  We look forward to expanding our literacy efforts with our little library community partners.”

Reading is such an integral part of life so the Parks and Recreation Division is glad to be part of this tremendous group effort. Having free reading material available in parks and public places is a great way to encourage people of all ages to enjoy the outdoors and expand their minds at the same time,” said Janet Horvath, Recreation and Enterprise Manager, Parks and Recreation Division. “Thanks go to our partners, Mayor Craig and her staff, Girls At Work and the City Library.  We can’t wait to see you outdoors enjoying the parks and reading!”

Over the next few days, the Manchester Parks and Recreation Division will install four little libraries at Livingston Park, Rock Rimmon Park, Sheridan Emmett Park, and Manchester City Hall. The remaining eleven libraries are scheduled to be installed in spring 2020.

The City of Manchester Health Department Celebrates its 180th Anniversary

Published: 10/23/2019 1:00 PM - Health Indicators

On October 26, 1839, the City of Manchester Board of Health was established, along with a system of police, to take measures for protection against fire. An excerpt is below from:

Manchester. A brief record of its past and a picture of its present, Clarke, Maurice D., comp., Clarke, John B. (John Badger), 1820-1891.1

To celebrate the Department’s history and present role as the City’s chief health strategist and neighborhood catalyst, we are pleased to announce the release of two documents – the Ten Commandments of Health from 1922 with a newly created version for 2019; and the Greater Manchester Community Health Needs Assessment.

The Ten Commandments of Health serve as a reminder of how the definition of health has changed over nearly 100 years since the first version was created. The 2019 version provides a greater emphasis on aspects of health that are not only physical, such as disease or illness, but behavioral health as well, such as the importance of getting exercise and eating healthy. One notable similarity is the recommendation for an annual vacation as a measure of wellbeing and mental health. The full stylized version can be found at: www.manchesternh.gov/health
