October Librarian Report

Librarian Sherri talks about what happened in the Library during October

October 2015

 Here are a few facts about our library the month of October 2015.  We have received 81 new books for the library.  Volunteers donated 159.5 hours to our library.  There were 1 1,280 materials checked out.  493 adult fiction books; 143 adult non-fiction books; 58 audio books; 216 children’s books; 244 junior books; 26 junior reference books and 100 large print books.

 October saw the display cases fill with Masks from around our world. Some were made locally and others came from as far away as Indonesia. It was a fun and creative display organized and set up by Rhoda Fleischman. Next up will be vintage board games. City Administrative Assistant Elizabeth Coleman and I hosted an Arbor Day Social in the Kirk Room on Thursday, October 15. Mrs. Coleman brought apples and pears for participants to make greeting card prints. 16 adults and children participated in this event. This multi-generation event was fun and I look forward to helping with it again next year. Our new heating and cooling system is installed. I am glad to be ensuring the warmth of our Library for years to come.

Respectfully submitted,

Sherri Lemhouse,
