CONCLUSIONS: Today's Dartmouth Public Libraries are well positioned. Libraries have hundreds of books and access to tons of databases, materials to help users, such as computers for the Internet. Librarians like to help people of all ages discover" new information. Dolores believes libraries are the key to discovering. Memorable facts, Dolores has found out with helping teens while researching the topic of snakes and things that slither, she discovered that the crocodile might grow to 19.5 feet and that an ASP (type of snake) bite could take up to 2.5 hours to kill a person. Dolores found the statement "I don't think I can find it" as the motivator. She uses every resource to find it (stopping at nothing to discover the question at hand). Libraries more than ever are finding ways to provide the needed funding to continue giving excellent service. Attend Town meetings and express your library concerns; communication supports change.
