    The library is in the middle of a strategic planning process to map our course for the next 5 years. In order to create a plan that best serves Wilmington, it is important to hear from residents.  Please complete the library's survey. It should only take 5 to 10 minutes You are also invited to attend the next Community Forum on Tuesday, April 29, 1 pm.  A facilitator will lead the forum. Light refreshments will be served. Please register if you plan to attend the Community Forum.
