Library Now A Part of the Northern New Hampshire Library Cooperative
On May 13th the catalog of the Conway Public Library became a part of the Northern New Hampshire Library Cooperative. What does this mean for Conway Library users? Conway card holders will now see the collection of Madison, Tamworth, and Jackson libraries as well as Conway. You can now place a "hold" on books in those collections and it will arrive here in Conway via a delivery service. Additionally, your Conway card is now good at those three libraries. Conway card holders can walk into those libraries and directly check out materials themselves. For more information about the cooperative, please contact Library Director David Smolen.

The library is a welcoming and inclusive place. Being in drag is an artistic and creative expression of oneself, and is not limited to gender or orientation. By crafting programs that create a joyful and engaging environment for everyone, we want to show our community that we welcome all people, from all backgrounds, and difference is not something to be feared.

By increasing the visibility of materials and services for everyone in our community, we are establishing the library as a welcoming and inclusive center with free access to all ideas, without censorship or discrimination. By providing library users with the freedom to explore an array of viewpoints, we help them develop them into thoughtful citizens.

This program is a part of White Mountains Pride week.

If you have any questions or comments about this program please contact Library Director David Smolen
