The public library is experiencing extremely high use this summer. We have exceeded our goals for the summer programs and records continue to be broken. The Friends of the Library funded some great programs this year. We entertained and educated 874 people in our programs, up from 618 last year. Our goal was to give away 40 sets of school supplies this summer, and we were able to give away 50 sets with a nice donation from Swepco/AEP, contributions to our donation jar, and local donations. We were able to offer refreshments at each program due to donations from Cypress Bank and a few key individuals. A huge thank you to all our volunteers without whose help we could not have provided these programs. We also collected approximately 125 pounds of food for local food pantries. In July, we issued new library cards to 35 families and set yet another high circulation record of 8,844 transactions for July, up from the previous of 8,209.
