What’s Happening @ Your Library? Let’s Talk About It Jan 10 – Mar 13, 2012 Tuesdays at 6:45 pm Let’s Talk About It brings together scholars and readers to read and discuss literature. The theme for the LTAI series is “Across Continents and Cultures.” The library has 25 copies of each title to checkout. January selections include: January 10: Eva Luna by Isabel Allende and January 24: Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Siejie.

Operation Wish Book begins November 1st Help put brand new books into the hands of area youth this holiday season. Operation Wish Book‘s mission is “To promote literacy and the love of reading by providing new books to area children.” New donated books will be accepted. Operation Wish Book boxes are located at all area schools and public libraries in the valley, as well as Hastings and Kling’s bookstores.

What’s going on with the new library? A lot of background work has been taking place in the last two months. Citizens of all ages provided exciting ideas through focus group discussions and an open house. The structural conditions of the building have been re-examined by engineers, the building has been tested for hazardous materials, and investigative demolition is taking place. Members of the Downtown Historic District Review Committee and the State Historical Preservation Office have been consulted for ideas and suggestions and sustainable design opportunities (think LEED) are being discussed! Library staff has spent time defining interior spatial and functional relationships with the goal of providing efficiency and comfort for our patrons.

What’s Next? A preliminary design of the building will begin in October and demolition of the interior of the building will start later this fall. If you would like to keep up with the project on a regular basis, let us know your email and we’ll add you to the email list!
