North Conway Library Raises $213 with Fitbit Alta Raffle

Lois Hatch, of North Conway, won the North Conway Library’s Fitbit Alta raffle fundraiser.


“When I called her, she was so excited and happy, which made me very happy as well,’’ said Andrea Masters, North Conway Library’s director, who thanked everyone who participated and bought raffle tickets. A total of $213 was raised and will be used toward books at the library.  “While this is one of the raffles that generated not that much income for the library, we were still able to buy almost 20 new books and DVDs!”

The Fitbit is one of the most popular fitness and sleep trackers ever and the brand new Fitbit Alta combines stylishness with functionality. It tracks steps, distance, calories burned, active minutes, hourly activity and stationary time, as well as how long and how well you sleep.

Lois is a long time library patron and just turned 80, so she decided to do her 5th marathon up in Lubec, Maine and Canada.  “My friends said that I really needed something like a Fitbit to help with training, so I am very happy to win this and will certainly be using it for my next marathon!” said Lois.  Along with picking up her new Fitbit, she got a new tattoo as well, a post marathon tradition of hers.

The North Conway Public Library is a privately funded library that is free and open to the public; large enough to offer a broad selection and small enough to respond to the reading needs and preferences of its users.  The library receives no regular funding from the town of Conway, the State of New Hampshire, or the federal government; therefore, it depends on donations, corporate sponsors, and fundraising efforts like this.

For more information, visit or call the library at 603-356-2961.
