FANWOOD, NJ - The Fanwood Memorial Library, the Library Board of Trustees, the Fanwood Borough Council, and Mayor Colleen Mahr would like the residents of Fanwood to voice their opinions about the Library.

The Library Board of Trustees has created a survey to see if the library is on track and to “take the pulse” of residents.  Responses will help them learn how to better serve the community.

The survey addresses the many challenges faced by the library, such as deficiencies in ADA-compliant access, lack of usable space, and the aging building and technology infrastructure—all of which are detailed in the Library Board of Trustees’ new Strategic Plan.  The plan stresses expanding the library's current role as a community hub, an information gateway, and in times of disaster, a place of refuge. To view the full plan, go to:

Surveys will also be delivered to all households in the Friends of the Library Newsletter in early April.  Please drop off or mail your completed survey to the library (14 Tillotson Road, Fanwood) or to Fanwood Borough Hall (75 Martine Avenue) before April 30, 2013.  Or take it online at:

The library board presented the Strategic Plan to Borough Council last February. Together the two groups have opened a dialogue around the critical issues that if not addressed could prevent the library from continuing to provide the excellent services the community expects.

 “We’d like your feedback.  Thank you for your time, and we look forward to seeing you at the library, “said Library Director Dan Weiss.  “You can contact me on 908.322.6400 or with any questions or comments.
