The Hubbard Trustees and staff invite you to participate in a Community Forum on the Future of the Hubbard on Monday, April 30 at City Hall auditorium from 6.30 to 8.30 PM. Refreshments will be available. Doors open at 6 pm.
The Hubbard opened in its NRHP listed historic building at 115 Second Street in 1880. It is governed by a Board of Trustees and has a staff of 5. Patrons number about 550.
Operating the Hubbard in a small city and with limited resources is a challenging endeavor. In mid-2017, a lack of funds required the Trustees to close the library on Mondays reducing weekly hours by 23%.
The goal of the Community Forum is to engage the Hallowell community in a dialogue about 1.) what the community wants and expects from the Hubbard in terms of existing, new, different, and expanded services and community involvement, and 2.) to ask what steps the community will take to support these new, different, and expanded services.
For the past 138 years, the Hubbard has been a central feature in life of Hallowell. You can help chart a course that will help continue this long legacy of service for many years to come.
Please join us.
