As part of our ongoing effort to provide the best services to our community, the Whipple Free Library is asking for your input regarding use of our library services. Information from this anonymous survey will be incorporated in the Whipple Free Library’s strategic plan. It will take only five minutes of your time to complete, but will help to shape the future of the library.
Paper copies of the survey are available at the library, or you may take the survey on-line HERE by March 31, 2014. Results will be posted in the library after May 1. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Library Director, Sarah Chapman at (603) 487-3391. Thank you for your participation!

A series of beautifully felted woolen pictures is hanging on the library’s walls for a final week. Michelle Russell, a fiber artist from Hancock, has been making things with her hands for as long as she can remember: painting, pottery,knitting, spinning yarn, weaving and felting. She studied environmental science and painting at Colby College. Through her beautiful works, Michelle hopes to share her love of nature, plants and animals with you. Please come down to view these gorgeous feltings!
Jeanne Bartlett and Jane Millon create vessels and baskets made out of birch bark. Their beautiful artwork feels like a “walk in the woods”. During the month of February, the library will feature their work in the display case. Please come on over to take a look!
