Aldrich Public Library is committed to transparency in its operations.

Aldrich is fortunate to have an endowment whose earnings help support operating costs. Low tax support in the past has sometimes forced Aldrich to withdraw principal from its investments in order to keep the library's doors open.

This letter was written in response to questions raised by the Barre Town Budget Committee and supplied to them on February 23, 2016.
