Enjoy refreshments and good company!
This is an adult program, but teens over the age of 12 are welcome
Please register in advance (even if it's last minute!) Call 294-4109 or email Amy, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pen Pal Program
In conjunction with their monthly events, they also facilitate a Pen Pal Program and some of their patrons have been corresponding with Exeter England! There are so many participants in PA looking for someone to correspond with, , that they've reached out to our library to see if anyone would like to participate!
There is an application available in our library or online, fill it out, bring it to us and we'll send it along to Pennsylvania where the staff there will hopefully find you a match among their lively bunch!
This program is related to, but not necessarily part of our Letter Writing Social. We just think it's a fun idea!
National Voter Registration Day
There are no major elections happening this year, but we want you to be ready for 2020!
Come to the library to check your registration information, change your address, or register to vote for the first time. No appointment necessary.
You will need your state ID or the last 4 digits of your social security card to update your information. If you live in Exeter, we will deliver all paper forms to the Board of Canvassers for you. If you live out of town, we'll provide you with a stamp to mail your forms in.

Library Tips & Tricks
Calendar of Events
We do not usually share community events on Facebook (there's just so much coming at you on Facebook already!) But we are adding a feature to our calendar where you can share your own community events there. We are working on the specific approval guidelines, but they most likely will be the same as our community bulletin board - events must be open to the general public, be a community event or fundraiser. For-profit business events will not be immediately included, but will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
