Librarian's Report:

  • We received a check for $64.42 from the Iowa Library services for open access services from July 2014 to June 2015.
  • Kris noticed the distribution of circulation type as compared to previous years.  The different types of circulation are more evenly distributed.  This means instead of just children's and adult books circulated, the types of circulation have evened out between adult, children's, videos, and digital books.
