Your library continues to serve the towns in a variety of ways. We provide outreach to the youngest members of our communities by visiting childcare centers and schools, and with a vibrant summer reading program. We reach out to our elders, delivering materials to the homebound, and facilitating a book discussion group at the NH Veterans Home. Patrons of all ages come through our doors for reading material, access to periodicals, stories for their commutes to work, family movie watching, and a variety of programs. We are pleased to be able to contribute to so many aspects of community life.

Our circulation is growing, with figures above 55,000 for the first time in history. The typical number of people visiting the library in any one week averages around 800 and our public access computers were used more than 10,000 times in 2007. We continue to add material to the collection to keep our patrons happy, and the information we offer up to date. Remember that our "card catalog" is accessible to you from your computers at home when you visit our website. The website also has our monthly calendar with program information, staff "good read" suggestions, and links to some of our databases.

Volunteers, listed above, are an important part of the library. They help us recycle, keep us posted about local current events, tutor non English speaking people, deliver to the homebound, and take care of our plants, both inside and out. We appreciate all of them, and all of our patrons as well. Please consider making your library a part of your week! We look forward to welcoming you!
