Librarian's Report: 

  • Sharon went to a class on WILBOR.  Several libraries are purchasing rights to download e-books for two weeks to patrons of the library.  It costs $500.00 to set it up ad $150.00 for e-books, plus additional costs for audio books.  Trustees feel that it's too expensive for the patrons of Farnhamville.
