Non-Resident Fee Update
Starting June 1, the annual rate for a non-resident library card will be raised to $20. Any renewals prior to June 1 will be at the current rate of $10.
This change was voted upon by the trustees on their March 19 meeting.
As Meredith residents, we have established the independent 501(c)(3) Meredith Library Fund. Our mission is to obtain tax-deductible donations, pledges and grants to
provide a philanthropic opportunity to help equip, renovate and expand the Meredith Public Library and reduce taxpayers’ cost for the project.
The campaign launched on February 1, 2019. We are pleased to report pledges are already at $60,000, jump starting our fundraising efforts. We are setting a goal of $1,125,000 for the capital campaign, based on the positive
feedback received from the recent Library Trustees Fundraising Study.
The Meredith Library Fund has received our 501(c)(3) designation letter from the Internal Revenue Service which can be viewed on our website. To learn more about Meredith Library Fund and the different ways to donate, pledge or volunteer, visit our website at www.meredithlibraryfund.org .

"Wonderland Forever" celebrates Alice in Wonderland and its creator Lewis Carroll. The multi-artist display features as small sculpture of Lewis Carroll created by the artist Valery Mahuchy who also sculpted the Archie statue in town! The exhibit will be on display for the months of March and April.
Stay tuned for a special Alice in Wonderland themed tea party in the children's room in April! Details coming soon.
A big thanks to Robert Rae for coordinating the exhibit.
Wonderland Forever began in January 2015 in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll's classic Alice in Wonderland and has been on exhibit ever since at libraries, cafes, and other venues. A Wonderland Coat of Arms was created (by artist Trissa Tilson) and bronze bas relief by sculptor Valery Mahuchy. Other paintings (about 20) were made by Robert Rae who owns the exhibit. Come visit the library and enjoy the unusual characters of "Alice's Adventures Underground" with some new ideas about what "garden of Live flowers" could be. - Robert MacRae
