Front Porch Forum clarification:
Paid ad is not from Orwell Free Library

The paid ad, “Your Local Library Wants to Hear From You!” that has been appearing in Orwell residents’ inboxes did not originate with the Orwell Free Library. It is a call to respond to a survey that is being conducted by the Vermont Certified Public Managers Program through the State of Vermont Center for Achievement in Public Service and in conjunction with the Vermont State Department of Libraries.This survey will assist the Department of Libraries in a preliminary look into how libraries may be perceived within communities throughout the state and may be used in the pursuit of future legislation regarding the state’s public libraries.

I encourage town residents to respond to the survey but want to mention that any comments/responses made on the survey will not find their way directly to the Orwell Free Library. Feel free to contact me with any further questions and/or comments.

Kate Hunter, Librarian
