Michael Korda (“Alone”) has written a life of Robert E, lee, “Clouds of Glory” which is equally as “approachable and captivating”. Lee’s image, based on audacity in battle and honor in defeat, has been suffered of late. Korda threads a middle ground between the rock of slavery and the hard place of the Lost Cause. The Lee that emerges from his pages is warmer than than Brady images, but nonetheless dominated by his rectitude and sense of duty. The latter famously led him in 1861 to fight for a cause he did not support. For an example of a Virginian whose sense of duty led in a different direction, try Christopher Einolf’s George Thomas: Virginian for the Union (coming soon to the library).
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10-2, someone will be in the library to answer the phone and fill all received requests to be placed in the Curbside Bin. The building currently remains closed to the public.

A Message from the Nichols Library Board of Trustees
January 4, 2021
We are reviewing recommendations issued by the State of New Hampshire and “best practices” put forth by the State Library to ascertain how to best serve the public while providing a safe workplace for our employees. We are being careful and thoughtful as we move towards reopening our Library. Hopefully, this will happen in the near future on a limited basis. Your continuing patience and understanding is much appreciated.
We welcome hearing from you during these challenging times. Please feel free to email the Trustees at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Library at 603-253-6950 with your ideas, comments and suggestions about reopening.
