Director’s Corner

Colorful toolAs we approach the Fall weather, the library is gearing up for cooler weather by having some of our favorite & new programming happening. We’re also doing projects around the library to spruce areas up. We’re excited to be a destination for all your needs and will continue to evolve to meet new ones.

We’ve finished The Hangout area for Teens & Young Adults after a seven-year absence. The Youth area has been getting updates with new carpet, interactive floor lava tiles, chalkboard wall, activity learning wall tiles, LiteZilla, a corner window shelving & lounge bench, and much more.

We appreciate people who filled out our Community Survey that was online & at the Circulation Desk recently. We’ve listened and started planning on the next projects in the library such as a water bottle filler, fireplace in the Adult Quiet Reading room, butterfly garden, walking paths, makerspace, outdoor theater, and much more. Our Community Garden install is starting shortly and will be ready for Spring 2023. We’ll start taking reservations for the 8×8 and 4×4 raised planter beds when we get closer to the Spring.

Community Garden rendering

With a renewed sense of optimism for a promising Fall and beyond, the Library Staff, the Library Board, & I remain committed to serving our communities and fulfilling our crucial mission of connecting people to the information & entertainment they seek. Now more than ever, it is clear that both elements of that mission are entirely dependent upon the other. Information is of little consequence without the library users and connections that make it meaningful. This longstanding principle of librarianship is not simply an adage; it is now an insight of everyday importance for us all. And it is also why we, as always, hope to see you in the library.

With regards,
Brian Vagt
