December is one of the slowest months for library use. Plus, we have not had contractors on site much of the last 10 days. That really does help. Remodel: We've had a series of small surprises that have given us pause and caused us to wonder. But, we are close to the end. The architect has drawn up a small punch list of items to be finished or fixed. The contractors should be in this week. Most of the furniture has been installed and we hope to get most of the rest delivered this week. The tv's are scheduled for Thursday. The landscape photos by area artists have been ordered and we'll have them installed by Jim Turner in January. Kristi says all of the artists seem excited to have their work hanging at the public library. This is another feature that will add to the new, warm and colorful ambience. The desk is awesome and comments have been positive. There are some tweaks needed on the bookcase. We have not settled on the signage yet. The manufacturer is working on modifications to the top of the fabric waves for an improved appearance. Tech Center staff have been everywhere running cable and providing support for the project while doing their best to keep up with the day to day needs and service. And, Larry Allen, our custodian, has worked on the project tirelessly for the past 2 months. And, special thanks (plus a plaque) to the Friends of the Library who are contributing $25,000 to the remodel project. That's a big wow to match our new look. • It was nice to see so many pre- school children and their parents in the library for the Cookies and Stories programs last week. That's one of those traditional programs that attracts families who may not be regulars. Youth Services sees some busy days over the holidays with school out. Financial: I'll send along the recommendation for the transfer of general fund money into the Capital Improvement Fund. We can discuss this at the meeting. It's $50,000. I wish it was more, but opted for a conservative approach to this modest amount to insure the stability of future operating budgets. New Year Project: We're getting started on our time out project for the first few months of the new year. This is a period of reflection and envisioning in which staff will identify how we use our time, envision how the future may evolve for public libraries and try to free up some time so that we can advance our services while budgets and staffing remain flat. It's hard to describe, but we're getting closer. Thanks for all of your support and input throughout the past year. It is so important that we have public participation in shaping services to the community. Your work with the Board helps extend our connections and achieve that goal. As always, let me know your comments and suggestions for improvement. • Joe McKenzie Library Director
