Library Establishing Teen Leadership Council. First Meeting to Take Place October 17th at 6:00 PM
The Conway Public Library recognizes its duty in promoting citizenship and literacy, and believes that creating a teen-friendly environment is essential to sustaining a healthy, thriving community. To uphold this responsibility, the Library is establishing a Teen Leadership Council to assist both in developing and implementing programs which serve local teens and encourage them to become life-long library users through the promotion of reading, learning, and volunteerism.

 We are seeking a group of dedicated, local youth who are interested in making a difference at the Library and in their community. The Teen Leadership Council aims to give the Library a new perspective on youth and youth a new perspective on libraries. TLC members play a critical role in developing the Library's young adult collection, young adult outreach, event planning and marketing, and making the library a friendlier place for young adults.

The Teen Leadership Council meets monthly on the 3rd Thursday at 6:00pm in an open-forum setting where teens can discuss the issues related specifically to their own use of the Library. Members will earn community service credit and will have a direct impact on the Conway Public Library.

For more information contact Jeff Beavers.

North Conway Reporter Now Digitized Through 1973. Library Seeking Funders to Further Effort.
We are happy to announce the Library has now digitized the North Conway Reporter through 1973. Working with Advantage Preservation of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, we now offer full text access to a replica version of the Reporter. It is a treasure trove of information. The library mails out microfilm reels to Advantage Preservation, who then digitizes and hosts the content. The cost for one reel is $125. If you are interested in sponsoring a reel of m-film please contact library director David Smolen.

The Library recently accepted a donation of a beautiful painting by local artist Sean Stull. Entitled "A Copse of Trees," the work was the June 2019 selection for the "Art Celebrates Place" calendar. Located in the DVD/Computer Area, the item is prominently located for all to enjoy. Thank you, Sean, for your incredible donation. We are very grateful.
Publishers continue to make it difficult for libraries to access ebooks and eaudiobooks for their patrons. Not only do libraries pay exorbitant fees compared to the general public, but publishers routinely place difficult limitations on those materials.
