Bristol Elementary School Starting in the fall of 2016 we partnered with Mrs. LaRochelle's classroom to do monthly programs at the library. Students are a read a story and are able to check out books. They are taught about the library, the catalog, and are often given projects that connect them with the library. In 2017 we started doing the same with Mrs. Guerriero's class. Other classes also visit the library for class field trips. We also make sure to attend the yearly open house and other events.
Newfound High School In the Spring of 2016 we put the high school distinction senior projects on display. Patrons are invited to read and learn about the exciting projects that students created! We are planning more partnerships with the High School.
NLRA The NLRA is a long time partner of the library. They have put on several programs at the library and in the summer of 2017 we will be offering several exciting ventures including a backpack program for NH State Parks.
Project Promise Every Spring we partner with Project Promise to bring students to the library. Through this program we hope that students will see the library as a place they can visit again and again!
TTCC The TTCC has been a long standing partner of the library. Every year they collaborate and help host our annual Summer Reading Program. In addition, we periodically welcome students to the library to take part in activities and reading time. In 2017 we started visiting the TTCC during teen night to do crafts with them.
