Library Earns Enhanced State Certification
The library has been recognized for meeting the Enhanced Level requirements for quality service by the Library of Michigan. To earn certification, the Library demonstrated its competence in seven categories of achievement including human resources; governance/administration; services; collection development; technology; facilities and equipment; and public relations/marketing. Some of the library’s notable improvements include opening 55 hours per week, installing automatic doors, offering digital literacy training, maintaining a new and relevant collection of books and media, and completing a strategic plan. Congratulations to the staff for a job well-done!
New Artwork at the Library
A new painting has been acquired for the library by local artist, Sharlene Welton called Dare to Dream . "I love that it will be in a public place for public viewing, with lots of books, people studying and using computers, a quiet place of learning and enjoyment. Feels right.", said Welton. Sharlene also painted two of our read boxes and the words on the wall in the children's area. The new piece was purchased with funds donated by our generous supporters. Thank you!
