Media Survey Opportunity
The Library Needs Your Input!
The Catawba County Library has spent the last 10 months working in our strategic planning process, including gathering varied community input—from library staff and customers, a community planning committee, our city and county leadership, and from the overall community through interviews, public surveys, focus groups, and public forums.
We have DRAFT strategic plan that hopes to capture the combined input of the community and drive our plans for growing library services over the next years to best meet the needs of our community. Of course, with any strategic plan, many goals and objectives are dependent on funding and how we can best partner in the community to share resources and best accomplish these goals.
As a valued community member, we need your input! Please complete the survey linked below to let us know if we’re getting it right, or missing anything.
Also, please join us for a public forum to share your input on Thursday, April 30th at 7 pm at the Main Library in Newton – your opinion matters!

Math Group Tutoring and Afterschool Help Sessions
THERE WILL BE NO REMEDIATION ON APRIL 27th.
Students need to review and complete all homework daily. We have several more strands of the Standard Course of Study to complete so please encourage your student to be at school everyday.
Then students drew another t-chart to categorize the extreme differences between the Pilgrims/Separatists at New Plymouth Colony and the Puritans of the MA Bay Colony---emphasizing not only different religious viewpoints, but also social status, education, skill sets, and who came as headright vs indentured servant. We are presently zeroing in on the extreme strictness of the Puritans (and since the students have been learning about irony in LA, they caught on rather quickly), but how such motivated the creation of the other three NE colonies. We have also been investigating the men and woman that were those colonies' founding motivators. Also, how their ideas have ended up in State and USA documents such as the Constitution.
While we will still be expanding the colonies into the Middle and Southern sections, we will begin the individual/differentiated powerpoint/report project on the American Revolution.
