Busy Library

As you can see if you look at the 3 galleries below we are a busy library. We serve patrons from babies to seniors and on Thursdays, we have programs to reach all those groups. We have a small space that is utilized for all these programs and has to be rearranged to fit the needs for each of these programs.

The toddlers and parents need space to play and yesterday our space was cramped, but hey it worked….We just moved stuff around and made more room. Then an hour after the toddlers left we had to be ready to serve lunch and have program with the seniors, and space to play BINGO. Once they were done, the tables and chairs had to be moved to be ready for Geri Fit on Monday. But hey we weren’t done with Thursday, we had after school 4H that utilized the space to learn about squishy circuits.

WE love being a busy library and on Tuesdays we do preschool story hours at 9:30 and 1:30, as well as the 1st Thursday of the month Miss LaVeda takes story hour to the Preschool at La Cygne Elementary.

On Mondays and Wednesdays we meet another community need for a fitness program for seniors. We use a program called GeriFit and seniors come and join group doing strength building exercises.

That’s why we’re going to “Imagine our Story” and expand, so we don’t have to set up and tear down so many times a week, and utilize space and resources to expand our library facilities. Watch as we start the building process in March and imagine what our story will be this time next year.

Finkle + Williams Architecture posted some concept drawing of the new building, we can’t wait to program in the new spaces in the Fall of 2020.
