LIBRARY DIRECTOR'S REPORT
10-Jul-18
                 
LIRARY NEWS              
The Poynette Area Public Library was involved with the Poynette Area Family Fun Fest. Lindsey helped to direct the Kiddie/ Pet Parade and Laura Falstad set up a booth in the afternoon after closing the library. The back door to the library wouldn't open from the outside with the key, but was able to be opened and unlocked from the inside. Public works lubricated the lock mechanism and it seems to be in working order now. The Summer Library Program continues to be a success thanks to all the library staff, volunteers and donations from the community.
