Wilder Library launches community survey to plan its future

Weston’s Wilder Memorial Library has launched its 2021 Community Survey complete with an Ice Cream Drawing. The Board of Trustees and staff are looking toward the future and seek participation in the survey to help plan Weston’s library of the future – a library that is a vibrant and important community asset.

The survey is available online, and paper copies can be picked up at the Library and Post Office in Weston.

“We are looking toward the future and would love to hear from you,” said Jessica Clapp, director of Wilder Memorial Library. “Our goal is to have a library that is an important community asset, providing the greater Weston community with access to the educational, cultural, recreational and research benefits of a free public library. The survey is essential to gathering feedback from the community.”

Ice Cream Drawing: Six survey respondents will receive four tokens for free ice cream cones at Mildred’s courtesy of the Vermont Country Store in Weston.

“Whether or not you use the library, your responses will help define the services and programs you would like to see in the future,” said Clapp.

The library’s home is a 200-year-old building that lacks a bathroom and running water. To bring the library into the 21st century, the library’s Board of Trustees and staff are working on a strategic plan to explore the possibility of expanding the building, which provides the opportunity to think creatively about what else could be in the library.

Clapp said, “The data compiled from the survey will assist us with evaluating and planning for the library’s future service, programming, and facility needs.”  The survey closes on Aug. 1.
