Jodi Bailey finalized the Library's 2021 Annual Report and began planning humanities purchases and programming with Kelly Anderson and Katy Hanousek's assistance. Funds from the $10,000 ALA-ARP grant will be received in March (& must be spent by Aug. 31st). The library was closed on Feb. 22, per our Emergency Closing Policy. Local author Jeff Nania will be presenting at our March 31st Book Club (thanks to a coordinated effort by patron Lynn Hanson, Kelly and Katy).

2022 PROGRAMS                
Katy assisted patrons by frequently updating and monitoring the library's website and Facebook page. Two volunteers from the Friends of the Poynette Library delivered books to support our Pioneer Place community outreach. Kelly Anderson hosted several Adult programs (listed below). There weren't any curbside pick-up appointments during the month of February. Miss Katy's awesome StoryTimes have attracted several new families and significantly increased circulation!
