  • Susan Priest getting a new car and not only happy but thankful for the help of $5000 gift from her brother to go towards the new car.
  • Shirley Moore happy to have celebrated her 85th Birthday on Easter and we wish her many more Happy/Healthy years
  • Ulli Lange let us know his car has 195K miles on his car and drove it back here from Colorado and found out the car diagnosed with need for an expensive repair when brought back here the garage told him it didn’t need that repair and now the question – Will the car make the return trip to Colorado??? Let’s hope
  • Joe Marsh received a card for his 30th year in Rotary and yes again Mike has been busy!
  • Bill Allison celebrated a birthday yesterday and went to the Pirate home opener – cold and snow the same weather he experienced the last time he went to a Home Opener!
  • Dick Feldstein happy to be visiting his Rotary friends and we miss him!
  • Dorothy Tecklenburg has a “visiting horse” (of course she does…she loves those horses) who eats and poops twice as much as her horses and has destroyed things in the barn, helped itself to blankets to make a nest to sleep comfortably, chewed many latches and barn rails….Good news, leaving soon!!

PROGRAM: 21st Century Libraries

Diane Ambrose and Kathy Pienkowski presented a program on 21st Century Libraries. Diane showed the progress of Citizens Library from its inception in 1870 to the present. Evolving from shelves of books to modern setting of areas developed on the main floor to handle different interests of today’s patrons and how varied they are.
Citizens coordinates the basic needs of 20 libraries in the three counties it serves.
Today you will find 350 online courses for credit, over a 6 week period that is free with your library card. Also there are varied offerings for teachers, children, language courses and audio books along with language courses and other offerings. Geneology is a major attraction for those visiting in the area over the summer months. There were numerous listings of courses and specific interests, it is recommended a visit to www.washlibs.org/citizens
With repurposing the spaces within the Library it will be necessary to purge 33 to 35% of the printed collection, mostly in the fiction area.
Library funding has been cut at all levels and as a result Diane and her team are learning about fundraising and grant submission to add to their “skill set”.
Great Program and We Thank Diane and Kathy for their Presentation!
