 Hill Resident Jenna Davis Named as the New Director of Bristol’s Minot-Sleeper Library
 By Donna rhoDes
BRISTOL – On Jan. 3, the Minot-Sleeper Library will of- ficially welcome Jenna Davis as their newest director, filling a spot vacated by former direc- tor Brittany Overton who took a new position at the Hooksett Library in November.

Be- ginning her interim position at Minot-Sleeper Library in mid-November, Davis said she immediately fell in love with the facility and the community alike. “I met the staff and saw that these women are amaz- ing,” she said. “The library has a really great vibe, too. It’s small, but it’s busy, and I knew
