For over 80 years, our mission has been to provide the best services possible to the citizens of the Westerville Public Library district. Your passage of the levy on November 8 allows us to continue that great tradition. We are extremely grateful to you and wish to extend our deepest thanks for your support as we look forward to finding new and innovative ways to serve our community.
Now we are rolling up our sleeves and working to deliver on our promises to you. We are interviewing prospective staff in preparation for reopening on Sundays beginning March 4. Our Sunday hours will be 1-6pm, year round. You can also look forward to many more materials to choose from as we have restored our book budget and increased it by nearly 40%.
As we enter the new year, we reflect on yet another busy year at the library. Once again, our circulation surpassed 2 million items; more than 1.8 million visitors came to our website; we served the library needs of 102,788 cardholders; over 35,000 people attended library programs and our Library Link program delivered nearly 20,000 requested items to students at Westerville schools.
Our library is once again rated one of America’s finest libraries, thanks to your support in 2011. We are humbled by our past success and are excited about our future.
