New Trustees, Officers At City’s Public Library

New trustees and new officers headlined the April Library Board of Trustees Meeting. New Trustees are Teresa Commerford, Jane Hokanson, & Emily Davis. Newly elected officers are Chairman Shannen DeWeese, Vice Chairman Mike Estes, Treasurer Karen Minnis, & Secretary Tiffany Carr.

Fulfilling their terms and leaving the board are LynAnnBowman, Karla Brummett, & Cyndi Christopher. These three women’s service totaled 39 years. Bowman was Chairman during the planning and construction of the new library, and Brummett was Treasurer during that time. These two carried for the board the heaviest duties of the construction, along with Librarian Kathy Leon, former Chairman Jules Constantin, & advisor Mike Brummett.

Librarian Leon reported on her recent trip to Denver to attend the Public Library Association Conference. It focused mainly on diversity with one of the main speakers being Anderson Cooper!

A lengthy discussion concerned plans for a plaque to commemorate donations given for construction of the new library. Librarian Leon will check with the Trophy Shop regarding possible designs.

The next meeting will be held May 16th. 2016 @ 7:30pm

A Library Poem


Everyone is welcome to walk through the door.
It really doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor.
There are books in boxes and books on shelves.
They’re free for you to borrow, so help yourselves.

Come and meet your heroes, old and new,
From William the Conqueror to Winnie the Pooh.
You can look into the Mirror or read The Times,
Or bring along a toddler to chant some rhymes.

The librarian’s a friend who loves to lend,
So see if there’s a book that she can recommend.
Read that book, and if you’re bitten
You can borrow all the other ones the author’s written.

Are you into battles or biography?
Are you keen on gerbils or geography?
Gardening or ghosts? Sharks or science fiction?
There’s something here for everyone, whatever your addiction.

There are students revising, deep in concentration,
And school kids doing projects, finding inspiration.
Over in the corner there’s a table with seating,
So come along and join in the Book Club meeting.

Yes, come to the library! Browse and borrow,
And help make sure it’ll still be here tomorrow.

– Julia Donaldson
