LIBRARY DIRECTOR'S REPORT

LIRARY NEWS              
The Friends of the Library voted to spend $4,000 to purchase new children and teen nonfiction books for the library. We utilized a 50% matching grant program available through EDC Educational Services because of the partnership with the Friends and their purchase of Usborne books. Graffiti was discovered on the wall near the back entrance on the morning of April 3. The Poynette Police were contacted and will investigate. The Public Works Department promptly painted over it in the early afternoon of the same day. History night projects are currently being displayed at the Library.
