Calling All Bridgewater Voters

Norman Williams Public Library is collaborating more widely with the Town of Bridgewater and is petitioning the town to include a funding request NWPL in the warning for this year’s Town Meeting. Please help us to get this item on the ballot by signing the library’s petition. It is vital that signatures be collected prior to this Thursday, January 19th.

We would greatly appreciate your help on getting this on the ballot in Bridgewater. Please stop by the library by Thursday, 1/19 at noon to sign.

Since 1883 many Bridgewater residents have been active patrons of the Norman Williams Public Library. Through that history the Town of Bridgewater and the Norman Williams Public Library have proudly partnered to further the literary health of our broader community. NWPL would like to strengthen this partnership by working more closely with the Town of Bridgewater while providing a full range of library service to Bridgewater residents.

In recent years, the number of Bridgewater residents who are active NWPL library card holders has ranged from 140 to over 300. All library programs are offered free of charge. Programs include author readings and story hours. Classes range from memoir writing, history, poetry, the classics, and religion to how to use your iPad. The children and youth library provides story times, craft programs and after school movies and STEM classes.

We thank the many Bridgewater residents who are so active with our library. These patrons add greatly to our library and communities. With your help we can keep the library as an institution that is broadly valued by the Bridgewater community as a destination for all forms of creative learning.

Thank you for supporting the library and for your help in getting this important initiative onto the warning for Town Meeting.
