Have you seen our new strategic plan?

Library staff and a focus group of Topsfield residents have been working on a new strategic plan for the library since November 2015. We used community input to craft a mission and vision statement, as well as goals to work toward, to help keep the library a lively meeting place and valuable resource to the community. Thank you to the participants of the focus group, as well as to all who answered our community survey. Your information and suggestions will keep the library moving forward!

The completed strategic plan is now available here, to read online.

Tri-Town Community Resources

The School Health Advisory Council of the Masconomet Regional School District has compiled a list of resources for families and individuals of all ages in the Tri-Town community. The list can be accessed here, as well as on our Reference page, under Local Links. Included is information on crisis/hotline services, food, energy, and financial assistance programs, health clinics, and more, all available to Tri-Town citizens.
