Your vision informs our future.

The Norwich Library is developing a new strategic plan that will provide vision and direction for NPL for the next three years.

Here's how to weigh in.

1. Attend a public forum. The next forum will take place at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 29, at the Norwich Public Library. Please RSVP to Lucinda Walker at 802-649-1184 or lucinda.walker@norwichlibrary.org.

2. Take our online survey. It takes 10 minutes and gives you the opportunity to share your vision for the library.

April is National Volunteers Month!

During this month of national recognition, library staff would like to express appreciation and gratitude for our fabulous, committed volunteers who contribute their hard work, good humor, and kind fellowship to patrons and staff every day throughout the year. NPL would not be the welcoming and vibrant community resource it is without the almost 2,000 hours that our volunteers contribute annually.

Peeps Diorama Contest

Entries accepted April 21-26

Peeps -- those colorful, squashy marshmallow treats -- are a sure sign of spring. This April, you're invited to "make a scene" with Peeps in NPL's (NPeepL's) first ever Peeps diorama contest!

Create a scene starring Peeps and inspired by anything you can check out from the library (books, movies, museum passes, magazines, etc.).

Entries will be accepted at the library from Monday, April 21 through Saturday, April 26, during normal library operating hours only. For contest rules, prizes, and more information, please click here.

Learn about the creative process of author and illustrator David Macaulay. Macaulay is known for his illustrated nonfiction children's books, including The Way Things Work, Cathedral, Mosque, and Castle.

This lecture is part of the Create! Series at the Norwich Public Library and is free and open to the public.

Tables of Content

Saturdays, April 26, & May 10

6:30-9:30 p.m.

Join the fun, meet your neighbors, and celebrate the future of the Norwich Public Library at our dinner party extravaganza!

Dinner hosts from all over Norwich have selected a book as the theme for a dinner that they will host. Choose a title that interests you from the offerings, and dine with fellow book lovers. You never know who will be there!

P.S. You really don't even have to have read the book!

For more information, and to book a table, visit the Tables of Content website.
