March/April 2019

As we all get use to the start of Daylight Saving, the nicer weather is coming our way.

Some new things are happening at the library:

  • Copiers:  We have new copiers available located near the front doors as well as in the Computer Lab.  Both new copiers function as both a copier and a print release station for computer prints & WiFi printing.   These new copiers are more efficient and have better quality then our previous copier & laser printer.
  • Hotspots….we’ve ordered more hotspots and we’ll have them ready soon.
  • Roku Express for streaming movies, television shows, and YouTube videos.
  • Window Replacement Project:  A majority of the spaces that were repaired are now open with the last remaining sections will be started soon.

We’ve submitted our Project Next Generation Grant through the Illinois State Library.  The project will focus on the teaching students (10-18) skill sets on computer science, animation fundamentals, audio design, adobe creative cloud, psychology, and of course Virtual Reality. The program will focus on technology skills through virtual reality, and exploring the components of computer science. With Virtual Reality and our Teens programs, students will learn and obtain skills that will follow them throughout their lives, and be fundamental in comparison to how technology is exceeding today.

As always, thank you to everyone who comes to the library to checkout materials, attend programs & events, and/or to catch up with friends.  Have a great beginning to Spring.

Regards,

Brian Vagt
Library Director
