Wowbrary highlights new items
The library now offers Wowbrary, a tool that highlights Adult and Children's books and AV items recently added to our collection. Use it two ways:
Longtime board member steps down
Veteran library board member Bill Satterwhite has stepped down from active particpation on the board and is now a member emeritus. At the October 21 board meeting, new Board President Maggie Hoover presented Bill with a proclamation thanking him for his service (right).
Bill served as Board President from 2001-2014. During his tenure, he oversaw many major changes at the library including the addition of a Teen Space and improvements to the west lawn. He was named the Library Foundation's 2013-14 Volunteer of the Year.
We extend our deepest thanks to Bill for his years of service and support!
Middle East program Nov. 5
Back by popular demand, Silk Road historian Dr. John Flattery will present "Trying to Make Sense of the Middle East" on November 5 from 7 to 8:30 PM in the first floor Meeting Room. Dr. Flattery has presented several classes at the library on the influence of the Silk Roads on the world, as well as a three-part series given last summer on the three major religions – Islam, Judaism, and Christianity – that continue to impact the area. The program is free, but seating is limited. Call 217-477-5220 to reserve a seat.
