Win a $50 Gift Certificate the The Toadstool Bookshop! Complete Our Library Survey

Our board of trustees has begun the process of long range strategic planning for the library.  In 2013, the board devoted itself to the evaluation and improvement of the library’s investments.  This year, the board has begun to evaluate other aspects of the library and its role in the community, with a goal of having a cultural library which meets the needs of its citizenry and continues to thrive and evolve.  Community feedback is critical to the development of the strategic plan.  With that in mind, we present the first in a series of surveys designed to solicit your ideas and opinions.  We ask that you answer each of the included questions.  Everyone who completes the survey and provides contact information will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to the Toadstool Bookshop.  The survey will run through the remainder of February and all of March.

Please keep in mind that the survey represents long term goals, rather than plans for the immediate future.  Thank you in advance for your participation!

Birdwatching in New Hampshire, which will be available for sale, contains maps to more than 120 of the best birding sites in New Hampshire. But finding good birds is more than just a function of location; it requires careful observation of the calendar and weather conditions. Wind, rain, and habitat all change, sometimes rapidly, to create ideal conditions for seeing the best birds that New Hampshire has to offer.
