We are starting to collect community stories about your experience of this unique time in history. Please consider submitting your story: we are looking for responses from residents of all ages of Windham. Respond using our Google Form, or visit our website to learn more and download a print copy, which you can submit through the mail.
  • We have shared a lot of updates as the situation has evolved in town and in the world. We hope we have reached a lot of our patrons, but we know there are people who use the library who won't see our posts on Facebook, etc. Please call your neighbors, friends, and family who may have missed these updates, and who may benefit from our services and resources. We hope everyone in the community knows that Nesmith librarians are still here to support you, whether it's through research databases to help with your remote learning, digital reading apps you can access with your library card, or free virtual resources available without a library card. Please email us or send us a Facebook message with any questions at all and we will do our best to help!
Please continue to check our website for resources and updates, or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Thank you.
