What Will the Library Be in the Future?

As part of the long-range planning process the Goodwin Library is currently participating in, it is conducting a community survey.   This survey is being sent out with the quarterly tax statements (I just got mine today -- on the salmon-coloured paper), but can also be found online at

Survey respondents will be eligible to win a gift card to Barnes & Noble -- but more importantly, respondents will provide information that will influence the direction of and goals for the library in the coming years. 

The survey is not very long and shouldn't take more than 5-10 minutes to complete.  Please fill out either the paper survey or the online survey -- whether you are a regular library user or not -- and encourage your friends and neighbours to do the same!

Butterfly Garden, pt. 2

Remember when I posted previously about the butterfly garden going in at the elementary school?  Well, it's been started.  Take a look at the early stages:

I need to get down there and take some more current pictures, too, but I bet it's going to be beautiful!
