LIBRARY DIRECTOR'S REPORT  
Tuesday, March 10, 2020  
LIBRARY NEWS                
Staff continues to learn Bibliovation updates.  Jodi Bailey met with Steve Jackson of Jackson Flooring and repairs were made to three frayed carpet areas on 02/11.  Due to inclement weather, it was decided to close the Library at 5:00 pm on 02/17 (all Poynette School District evening activities were also cancelled).  Staff has begun collaborative work on the Office update.  Jodi hopes to purchase two Master Force stackable cabinets from Menards in March. Public Works replaced burned out interior light bulbs. Jodi is working with Lynn Hanson & Martin Shanks, Village Admin., to nominate the Poynette Historical Society for a Governor's Archival Achievement Award for our collaborative digitization project (Recollection Wisconsin).
