Library asks for community input on future programs


WESTFORD — The J.V. Fletcher Library is asking for community input on future programs and offerings.

Every five years, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners is required to submit a plan on how to spend funds received from the Library Services and Technology Act.

Grant funding helps create and develop educational services and programs while remaining accessible to all patrons. In 2018, $10,000 in grant funding was used to train staff to provide “consistent and exemplary” reader’s advisory services, according a 2019 annual report.

The library announced a variety of family-friendly events, including origami sessions, financial literacy workshops and an adult book discussion. 

The library is fielding answers for what patrons want the library to offer within the next three to five years.

Respondents should submit their replies by April 15. The survey can be found here.
