It is hard to believe that 2019 is upon us. As such, it is nice to take a look back and remember all the accomplishments and acknowledge all the things we're grateful for.
We kicked off 2018 by revising our Mission Statement. Knowing that 2018 was going to be a year of many changes, the Library Board and staff felt it was important to have a solid understanding of the library's mission. And, we wanted a mission statement we could remember!
In April the Library Board adopted an updated Strategic Plan.
In May the library's renovation project began.
This fall the renovations finished up on the lower level. The Youth Services department reopened on October 31 and the Community Room was not far behind.
On December 1 the library held it's annual Holiday Walk and the Marquette Arts and Culture Center opened to the public.
While this renovation project has been an extensive undertaking the library has managed to continue offering programs and services in a modified fashion. In fact, an average of nearly 2000 people attended monthly library programming this year.
We thank you for your continued patience during the renovations.
The remainder of this project should be completed in March 2019.
