Library

 

Mission and Program Description:  

The mission of the Weathersfield Proctor Library is to provide open and convenient access to information, through traditional resources and evolving technologies, to citizens of all ages in the town of Weathersfield. The library contains materials that complement the educational programs of the Weathersfield School and that can be used by those pursuing life-long learning. The library intends to serve as a vital center for community life by providing meeting and exhibition space for community groups. Because the town of Weathersfield encompasses a large geographic area, with great distances between settlements, the Weathersfield Proctor Library will do everything in its power to provide public services to all residents of Weathersfield. 

Department Objectives  

  • Serve as a center for lifelong learning by supporting programs and materials that enable our community members to learn and grow throughout their lifetimes.
  • Partner with the local school district and local, licensed, daycares to increase literacy and participation in library programs, and to make use of services offered to children and their families.
  • Promote programs and events through a variety of media sources.
  • Provide helpful staff that is available to assist with patron needs.

Make the library building and grounds, as well as offsite programing events, gathering places where community members can socialize.
