Community Report 2017

The Frothingham Free Library was a busy and active part of our community in 2017.  Our eBook and digital magazine services are very popular.  Patrons enjoy being able to check out eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines anytime from the comfort of their own homes.

The library held 103 programs with overall attendance of 990 people.  Book discussions, an adult craft group, and lunchtime concert were offered for adults.  Story hours, children’s programs, and summer reading programs were well attended by children and their families.  The summer reading program participants read 843 books during our eight week program.  We circulated 18,312 books, audiobooks, cds, dvds, and ebooks in 2017.

We continue to showcase an artist each month in our mini gallery at the front 
of the library.  We have had many talented artist’s work displayed in 2017.

The library was closed for six weeks during the summer due to fire and flood damage.  We were able to continue our summer programs at the Fonda Reformed Church.  We are very thankful for the community support we received during our restoration.

The board of trustees and staff strive to listen to our community and enrich our library each year.

We would like to thank our dedicated volunteers and everyone who generously supports the library.  We appreciate your help in making the library a vibrant place in our community.
