 The Minot-Sleeper Library is pleased to announce that its collection of Bristol Enterprise newspapers has been digitized and posted online. The archive of newspapers, from June of 1878 to December 1996, is now publicly available at
“We are delighted to offer digitized versions of our local newspaper collection,” said Jen- nifer Davis, director of the Mi- not-Sleeper Library. “This will be an incredible resource for re- searchers, genealogists, historians, students, and community mem- bers who can have instant access to historical records of events,

vital statistics, social activity, in- dustrial activity, and everyday life in Bristol.”
Advantage Archives, an Io- wa-based company that special- izes in preservation microfilming services, has scanned, digitized, indexed, and posted 75 rolls of the library’s microfilm, making 100-plus years of Bristol history freely available. Instead of scroll- ing through one reel at a time with the microfilm reader, the public can now search through the complete Enterprise collec- tion by name, date range, key- word, publication, or location with incredible ease and speed.
Lucille Keegan, President of
the Bristol Historical Society, longtime Library Trustee, and avid researcher, is very enthusias- tic about the project and the re- sults. “Having the archives of the Bristol Enterprise digitized has made researching a Bristol topic, event, or person easier and more accessible. I will now be able to direct someone requesting infor- mation that I would have had to search in the paper copies to the website to do their own search. They may be able to locate the information faster and perhaps find other pertinent material. The Historical Society is very thankful to the library for applying for and receiving this grant.”
The Minot-Sleeper Library’s digitization project was paid for using Sustaining the Humanities through the American Rescue Plan (SHARP) grant funds from the New Hampshire Humanities and the National Endowment for
the Humanities (NEH), facilitated by the New Hampshire State Li- brary.

Circle Program & The Holderness School Camp Clean-Up Days Started Early This Year!
    LANDSCAPE SUPPLY 3The Plymouth area’s best choice for landscape
Circle Program is re-opening its camp gates this spring for their annual Clean Up Days – May 21st & May 22nd! Thanks to the Holderness School’s ninth-grade class, the camp spring clean- ing started early! For two weeks in March, groups of 9 students and two teachers visited Circle’s camp. They cleaned the inside of the camp buildings, toured the campgrounds, and learned about Circle’s mission.
This partnership was part of Holderness School’s Project Outreach program, which is their 11-day all-school “Special Programs” event scheduled every March. The entire ninth grade becomes involved with service learning by working with non- profit organizations throughout the state. The students also fund-
raise for the Special Olympics of NH, raising just under $15,000 this year!
The feedback from Circle staff, Holderness School staff, and students were extremely pos- itive! The students loved visiting the camp and eating their lunch in the camp dining hall while Circle and Holderness’s staff brainstormed new ways the two organizations can collaborate more in the future.
For anyone interested in participating in Circle’s May clean-up days, mark your calen- dar for Saturday, May 21st, and Sunday, May 22nd, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Please RSVP by calling the office at (603) 536- 4244 or emailing liz@circlepro- Lunch is provided!
