Director’s Corner


May/June 2019

As Leo Tolstoy says, “Spring is the time of plans and projects!”

What are your plans & projects you’re working on? Hopefully it’s something fun like a trip or a project outside or even a trip to the library for an event like our upcoming Rummage Sale & Summer Reading Kick-Off in June.

We’ve made many plans and one is the Technology Upgrade Project that has begun…
It’s estimated to take a couple of months so please be patient as we make a transition to a new IT company but once it’s completed; we’ll have improved WiFi, Network upgrades, and new computers. The upgrades will also improve the connection to our new copiers as well.

Our other project, the Window Replacement, is nearing the end. We apologize for it taking longer than expected but we had some weather issues and other unforeseen issues.

In other news, we got our annual Per Capita Grant award letter from the State of Illinois and we’re hoping we also get awarded the Project Next Generation Grant we submitted in mid-March. The grant will focus on the teaching students (10-18) skill sets on computer science, animation fundamentals, audio design, adobe creative cloud, psychology, and Virtual Reality. We’re hoping to receive word in May on whether we received the grant.

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.
