  • Headwaters Economics Toolset

    We were recently introduced to the Headwaters Economics Toolset. Using these report generators you can download socioeconomic reports of communities, counties, & states, including aggregations and comparisons. The Economic Profile System (EPS) uses federal data sources, including the Bureaus of Economic Analysis, Census, & others. EPS is also known as the Human Dimensions Toolkit by the Forest Service.  Try it for yourself by clicking here.

    We'd like to thank UNH Cooperative Extension for providing us reports for all the towns in the Lakes Region. Click here to visit our Latest News page for a list of the reportsalso available on the towns' pages. Please note that these reports were generated on July 14, 2017 based on information that changes frequently. For more up-to-date information, please use the tool to generate your own reports.

Library Images

One of our ongoing projects has been digitizing the boxes of slides in our library.
With the cold blustery weather of winter upon us, enjoy some photos of summers past:

A photo from a lake of a house with a boat garage. The boat garage has a red door and a boat is visible beneath the door. Everything is reflected in the lake.

A photo of a small white boat at the edge of a lake, loaded with equipment,  with three men standing by it

A photo of children and teenagers lined up along the side of a bridge, one girl in a swimsuit has jumped off and is diving towards the water, another is standing on the railing waiting her turn.
