DIRECT LINE from Vickie L. Novak, Library Director In Winter LINES, I spoke about the 2017 study the Library conducted with nationally known library consultant, John Huber. His firm specializes in “service and cost transformation with a purpose,” with emphasis on how an organization can perform more effectively with the resources at hand. Positive changes have taken place as a result of Huber’s recommendations, many of which improved service to the public at little or no cost. These are just a few of them: • .Increased programming aligned with community enhancement needs—Staff has focused on new, larger-scale programs that appeal to a broad demographic, such as the Maker Faire last spring and GlenCon in October, the Library’s version of a ComicCon, both attracting hundreds of parents and children of all ages; • .Reconfigured the Library’s book ordering and selection processes—This allows the Library to provide its patrons with new materials in a more efficient manner. Less time is now spent per item from the time the order is placed until it is cataloged, entered into the database, and is ready for checkout; • .Increased the use of evaluation forms for library programs and events to create outcome-based feedback from attendees that will be useful in planning future program offerings; • .Expanded Maker programs to include sewing classes for teens and adults, and astronomy classes on the Library’s outdoor terrace; • .Adjusted staff work schedules to meet peaks and valleys of library usage. Plans for the Future: • Investigate the feasibility of a Marketplace to highlight new materials—books, DVDs, popular authors, and thematic, seasonal displays—getting more new items on shelf and increasing availability without a long wait time; • .Rearrange library collections for greater accessibility—e.g., relocate World Languages to the second floor to better align with other non-fiction collections; • Add two additional Self-Checkout stations, which will relieve long lines at the Circulation Desk; • .Outsource book processing for high volume/high hold categories to put them in patrons’ hands more quickly; • .Conduct a “One Book, One Glenview” Community Reads program in 2018.
I would also like to thank AT&T for its willingness to consider the Library’s request to allow patron access to the four AT&T parking spaces on the main parking deck. With assistance from the Village of Glenview, the Library and AT&T have entered into an agreement that will allow Glenview Library patrons to use those spaces. With parking at a premium, particularly when program attendance is so high, four additional spaces in close proximity to the Library’s main entrance are very welcome.

Illinois 200: Celebrating Our Prairie Heritage
Through Tuesday, March 13 Artist: Dee Hudson • deehudsonphotography.com In the 1800s, Illinois was covered in 22 million acres of prairie, giving the state its nickname “The Prairie State.” Today, only a tenth of 1% of original prairie remains intact, making this one of the most rare and endangered ecosystems in the world. Dee and many other land stewards are devoted to restoring fields in Illinois back to their presettlement prairie landscapes. When photographing the prairie, Hudson finds it exciting to discover such diversity among the prairie plants and animals compared to the surrounding environment. As she hikes with her camera mile after mile through the prairie, she feels at home and has made deep connections to the land and to the stewards who love and nurture it.
A Long Look: Connecting to the Material World Thursday, March 15–Tuesday, May 15 Artist: Deb Anderson • debrha.wordpress.com GALLERY TALK: Wednesday, April 4, 6:15 PM • Library Lobby
A wall of tangled foliage…the vast night sky…a shifting web of waves. When something catches Deb’s eye and touches an inner nerve, painting can be a way of staying with it, observing and mapping, even when the significance is not initially clear. That long, focused looking becomes a meditation, a way of forging a deeper connection with the material world. Deb’s oil paintings explore natural forms. Many are located in and near Glenview: the Grove, a forest preserve, and along the sides of roads. The horizon is high or not visible. The view is directed down or up, searching. Compositions are pulled out of a chaos of plants, waves, and stars. Deb loves the feeling of getting lost in the colors and shapes, like a jigsaw puzzle. In Deb’s words, “If I look long enough, with focus and curiosity, then I’ll see more, and perhaps see something new.” Deb will also lead a painting workshop: Confident Painting Through Trial & Error • See page 8 for details.

Thursday, October 18, Luncheon: Noon, Program: 1 PM Glenview Library Community Room Linda S. Breuer is the owner, founder, and director of Barnswallow, A Wild Bird Concern in Lake County, Wauconda, Illinois. Linda grew up in Golf, Illinois, joined the family business, over years rose to the top, ultimately sold the business, bought a large property in Wauconda, and opened Barnswallow, A Wild Bird Concern—a state and federally licensed wild bird rehabilitation and education center. Hundreds of injured birds are brought to her, particularly in the springtime. She handles their rehabilitation by herself in her ample facilities, with help from one assistant and volunteer middle and high school interns. She is dedicated to the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned raptors and songbirds with the goal of restoring their freedom in the wild and helping the public become aware of the wonderful winged creatures sharing our space. Barnswallow is a private, not-for-profit Illinois corporation supported entirely by private funding. Linda will bring a variety of non-releasable birds—a falcon? a hawk? an owl?—to demonstrate her mission. The birds living at Barnswallow were too injured to be returned to the wild and thus live in great comfort and can be part of her educational talks. She also brings a large tarp for the floor, so it is protected. Linda is personable and eloquent; you won’t want to miss this Friends’ program.

Chicago’s Newberry Library and the American Writers Museum
Wednesday, November 14, 8:45 AM–4 PM 8:45 AM: Meet at Glenview Community Church, 1000 Elm Street Come enjoy, via deluxe chartered motorcoach, a day in Chicago when we will visit the recently-renovated Newberry Library and the American Writers Museum (opened May 2017). The Newberry Library, beginning a six-month renovation project in January 2018, is one of our country’s great, privately-endowed libraries. Created by a $2.2 million bequest in 1885 from Walter L. Newberry, a Chicago businessman and philanthropist who wanted “a free public library on the north side of the Chicago River,” it ranks with the Morgan, the Folger, and the Huntington. On our private and leisurely guided tour by a member of the Newberry’s staff, we’ll see the renovated library and the spectacular exhibition, Pictures from an Exposition: Visualizing the 1893 World’s Fair, created specifically to celebrate the library’s renovation and the 1893 Exposition. Luncheon will be a treat as well, catered and served in one of the Newberry’s conference rooms. Then, it is a short drive (ten minutes), via our motorcoach, to another museum created for the public from private donations, the American Writers Museum. This small museum is a special treasure, with engaging, interactive displays. Until 2017, there was no museum in our country that captured the wonderful literary heritage of the United States. The mission of this museum is to engage the public in celebrating American writers. Visit your favorite American writers!
