“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” Henry Ford
Today’s library as it transforms and embraces more technology based materials like ebooks and databases for both recreational reading and research is increasingly delving into collaborations with outside organizations, educational institutions, businesses and other libraries. Libraries are also seeking individuals willing to share their knowledge and experiences with the library community.
This summer’s partnerships included Loon Echo Land Trust, Gorham Savings Bank, Raymond Fire Department, Classic Paws Inc. and numerous Raymond businesses.
This fall we are pleased to welcome Windham-Raymond Adult Education as a new partner. The following classes will be held at the Raymond Village Library.
