Please join us on Saturday, January 28th from 10 to 12 to thank Mary Danko for her leadership as director of the Abbott Library and to wish her well in her next adventure. Light refreshments will be provided.

 

To The Sunapee Community:

On January 13th, the Abbott Library Trustees regretfully accepted the resignation of Mary Danko as Director of the Abbott Library. Mary’s resignation will be effective February 3rd.

Mary has an incredible opportunity and has been hired as the Director of the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington, Vermont.

Mary has been with the Abbott Library for four years and during that time, was very instrumental in assisting with the new library building project, coordinating the move of the new library, growing circulation, programming and community awareness of library services.

The Trustees will be working through a process searching for the next Director of the Abbott Library and will make an announcement once a person has been selected.

The Trustees will host an Open House on January 28th from 10 – 12 at the Abbott Library. Please feel free to stop in and join us in thanking Mary for all she has done and to wish her well in her new position.

Mary will be missed! She has made considerable contributions to the Abbott Library. The Trustees wish her nothing but the best in her new position in Vermont.

Sincerely,

Terri Jillson White, Chair
Abbott Library Trustees

 

It is hard to believe, but the Abbott Library in Sunapee just marked our 2-year anniversary in our new building!

On Wednesday – January 18th, the Abbott Library Trustees will be hosting a Strategic Planning Forum which will run from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. and will be held at the Abbott Library. The forum will be moderated by Michael Marquise and light refreshments will be served.

Please come and share your ideas and thoughts on services and programming you would like to see in the library.

If you are unable to attend the evening forum, an on-line survey is available here: www.abbottlibrary.org/survey. Paper copies of the survey are available at the Abbott Library.

The Trustees look forward to learning about your thoughts and ideas as we work on formalizing a Strategic Planning document.

Sincerely,

Terri Jillson White, Chair

The eBooks are typically storybooks for young children. They will need to be downloaded to a tablet or phone in the “READ” format for the narration part to work. Some computer browsers are also compatible (Chrome, Safari, IE11).

After checking out an eBook with embedded narration, select the “READ” format.
