Rotary Delivers Holiday
 
For more than fifteen years, the Rotary Club of Durham-Great Bay has each December provided turkeys to local food pantries for their holiday food baskets. This year marked a slight departure as 165 turkeys were provided as well as 42 hams. To date, over $50,000 in turkeys have been given. It is a fun-filled project the membership looks forward to each year. From loading the boxes of turkeys onto trailers and trucks, (often the caravan is escorted by the Durham police or the fire departments), to seeing the happy faces of food pantry volunteers as the many boxes are unloaded. Although a small project, it sets the tone for the Holidays.
 
Interact Group worked hard to hand make a colorful and fun thanksgiving for all.  They made over 50, unique mats for the residents of The Pines in Newmarket for their ThanksGiving Dinner.  They were made of great durable materials, so that can be enjoyed for many days to come.

Little Free Library 

"Reading matters and together, we can make a difference."

 
As of August 21, 2019 DGB Rotary has installed 3 new Little Libraries!
Extra special thanks to member Phil Albright (pictured below) for all his hard work on this project!
 

 
Durham Great Bay Rotary Club is passionate about promoting literacy.  To further our goal of promoting literacy, we introduce the Little Free Library Project. 

Why Little Free Libraries?  

Benefits of this program include providing kids, UNH Students, businesses and local residents books to engage in reading more.

As it states on the Little Free Library website the impact can increase visibility within the community while making a contribution to book access.

Great way to promote literacy and have it woven within the fabric of our local community.

A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community; Little Libraries have been called “mini-town squares.”

How can you make a difference?

We are looking for Business owners or individuals who may want to sponsor, become a steward, or host and maintain a location for a Little Free Library.

We are looking for books for donations.

Do you have enough space?

They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books.
Libraries can be as small as a bird house up to as big as a sitting bench that you can purchase or we can make.
Every Little Free Library we set up will have the option be registered to the World Map on this site; https://littlefreelibrary.secure.force.com/mapPage
