Librarian's Report:

  • Kris attended a meeting in Storm Lake on November 19th to learn about the new program to use on our website.  Keeping our website updated through these classes allows patrons to be kept informed of upcoming events and makes sure we retain the website for our use.  She will attend more classes next spring for this also.  These classes are onsite and not online, so we can have one-on-one help to keep improving our websites.
  • The Library is planning on being closed for New Year's Day.
