Thank you for another great summer of reading and discovery. As a community, readers from pre-school through adults logged 6,085 books during our 7-week Summer Reading Program.
In this issue of Between the Bookends, you will notice some new features. On pages 8-10 we have added a chronological calendar view of all of our library programs. During our focus groups for the Strategic Plan, we heard from many patrons that this would be a useful addition to the newsletter. Please let me know your thoughts on the calendar view by emailing me at Benjamin.Reid@huronlibrary.org. I thank the Friends of the Huron Public Library for helping us fund these extra pages.
Finally, the Huron Public Library has an operating levy on the general election ballot this November. We invite you to learn more about the Library Levy at a Community Ice Cream Social on Tuesday, August 29 from 5 pm - 7 pm at the Huron Boat Basin or at our Library Levy Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday, September 27 at 6 pm. Here is a pdf of some answers to common questions, and please contact me or attend an event with any further questions. We’d like to be as transparent about our funding needs as possible.
