Chichester Town Library
As alluded to in a lead-in article last week, the Library Trustees
and staff are embarking on a ten-year strategic plan. Your help is
needed! To adequately plan for the future, residents are asked to
fill out a survey about the Library. Results from the survey will
be used to map the Library’s direction in the years ahead. We want
to know what services are important to you and your family; how you
rate the Library services that are now offered; and, what you would
like to see your library provide in future years.
survey is included in today’s Suncook Valley Sun and is also
www.chichesternh.org and then clicking on the library link.
Completed surveys can be returned via mail or dropped off at the
Library, town office or Chichester Central School, as well as via
the web. A special “drop box” will be provided at the sites listed
If you would like to be a part of a discussion/planning group about
the future of the Library, please indicate this by providing your
name and contact information on the survey, or by contacting
Librarian Lisa Prizio at 798-5613. Remember, it is your library!
