After years of uncertainty and extensive public consultation, Pelham is moving ahead with the reconstruction of the Maple Acre Library Branch in Downtown Fenwick. On Wednesday, January 20, 2016, the Maple Acre Advisory Committee approved Option A as the design for the new library facility.
A moment of silence will be held at the next library board meeting on Wed., Jan. 27 for Stephanie Stowe, former CEO of the Pelham Library. Stephanie passed away last week. She served as CEO of the Pelham Library from 2001 to 2013. Under her guidance, the Pelham Library became known for its innovation. Children's programs increased, seniors' programs were established and the Heart of Niagara Author Series had its debut. She was proud of the increased use of the library under her leadership and of the awards won by the Pelham Library.
As part of our strategic planning process in 2016 we want to hear from you about the quality of programs and services we offer. We will provide several opportunities and methods for receiving this input. We want to hear your personal stories about why the Pelham Public Library is important in your life. Throughout February, we will ask for short submissions about the experiences you have had at the library and how they have impacted you personally.
