Thank you for your support!

A month ago we posted that the Hartford Selectboard was considering a 10 % reduction in funding for the town’s three incorporated libraries. As this would have a substantial and harmful impact on town-wide library service, we asked your support in voicing your concern to the Hartford Town Manager and Selectboard.

We are delighted and greatly relieved  to announce that the town manager recommended full funding of the library requests in the final proposed budget, which the Selectboard then accepted.   We are so grateful for that decision and for the articulate and passionate support voiced by you.  It was essential support in multiple ways.  The budget will go before voters in March.  Please continue your support.  Our background page can be read here. Stop in often and enjoy the many resources you have helped to preserve and extend.

These town budget hearings coincided with our annual appeal.   Responses have again been significant and equally important.  The benefits of being an incorporated library in an engaged community are clearly multi-fold.  Thanks again.
