2016 was a year of improvements. We undertook renovation and modernization projects and we built up the Library’s collection.

We began allocating more funds for new books and other materials and replacing well-loved classics. We added comfortable furniture to provide more places to work and relax. The electrical system was revamped to provide more places to plug in and recharge electronics, and we upgraded our WIFI.

Maintaining our charming and historic building is an honor and a pleasure, but it isn’t cheap. We are finishing up work to mitigate water infiltration in the front room and have recently been awarded a state grant to help with the cost of updating our heating and air conditioning systems.

Programs, programs, programs! At Helen Kate, you can sit in on a story hour, join a knitting group, attend an author event, learn about local history, figure out your iPad, and so much more. There’s always something interesting and engaging going on.

Helen Kate is a thriving center of the community and it is fueled by your generosity.
