Library Trustees Annual Report Letter 2011
The West Bridgewater Public Library
Trustees Annual Report
It is appropriate that the Residents, Selectmen and Finance Committee recognize The West Bridgewater Public Library as a valuable asset and resource. Just as philanthropist Andrew Carnegie did when he funded the construction of many public libraries through out our country during the 1900th century and as Francis E. Howard an original Trustee of the library, benefactor and resident of West Bridgewater, the residents of West Bridgewater also realize the importance of a public library.
The Board of Library Trustees wishes to extend their sincere gratitude to all who support our efforts, including our elected officials, fellow town Residents, Patrons, Volunteers and, Friends of the Library, as we offer the best library services available to the public.
We would also like to thank and recognize our Staff for providing exceptional and professional services to which our patrons are accustomed while simultaneously developing additional programs and services to reflect the changing needs and interests of our patrons.
The Board of Library Trustees meets the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the historical room of the library. However, dates and times may change and can be confirmed at the town hall or at the library. All town residents are welcome to attend our meetings.
