Thanks to our community’s support, the library was able to reopen on Sundays, purchase many more materials, invest more heavily in electronic books and magazines, and offer more programs than ever before. Our community responded in record numbers.
Last year the library circulated 2,269,798 items, an increase of 17.14%. Over 45,000 people attended programs of all kinds, representing an increase of 25.53%. And, our website had 1.9 million visitors. Thank you for your continued support of one of America’s finest
This year, a rejuvenated Youth and Teen area will welcome children. The Activity Center will be enlarged, a permanent Homework Help Center will be added and the Teen Center will receive touch-ups.
In Adult Services, the Technology Center will be renovated with new flooring and lower walls at the computer stations, to improve airflow. Two new Online Conference/Skype stations and a 3D print station will be installed in the department.
Throughout the year we will be replacing outdated HVAC systems with more efficient ones, beginning in early spring with the 1965 and 1979 units.
As we look forward to another outstanding year, we invite you to experience all that your library has to offer.
