December Van Delivery News - Holiday Closings

The New Hampshire State Library will be closed the following days in December:

Thursday, December 25, 2008 - Christmas

There will be NO VAN DELIVERY on that day.


If your library is closing early on Christmas Eve, or will be closed on the day after Christmas, please let your van driver know, or e-mail me so that I may let the van driver know before the day arrives, so they don't transport materials unnecessarily.


For a complete list of all of the holidays the State Library is closed, please visit (the van delivery instructions) and scroll down to "NO Van Service".

If for any other reason (e.g. bad weather) van service on a particular route(s) does not operate, libraries will be notified via an e-mail message. If your library does not receive van service on a particular day, please check your e-mail before calling the State Library.

Due to the ever increasing load of materials transported by the New Hampshire State Library van delivery system, our vans can reach maximum capacity before the end of a van route, especially following long weekends and holidays. The long Thanksgiving weekend was a case in point, with heavy loads on our vans the following Monday. Our drivers can decline to accept materials if they feel they cannot fit them safely on their van. We are also asking libraries to please be aware of volume during times when there is likely to be a problem. You should prioritize your materials to be picked up, in case some items must be left until the next van pick up. That will allow us to immediately transport the most important items as quickly as possible. If you have any questions you may contact Donna Gilbreth at 271-2060 or Diana DeCota at 271-2206. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
