LIRARY NEWS              
Lindsey Ganz is currently talking to Vicki Teal Lovely of SCLS to help coordinate our application for the TEACH Infrastructure grant that Poynette may be eligible for. Lindsey Ganz met with a salesman from Rhyme to look at our copy and scanning needs and to discuss quotes. Library staff, volunteers and our intern have been working to move collections in the library. The adult nonfiction section has been weeded and moved. The paperback novels are now located in the front of the library. The AV collection will now be together on one wall. Rebecca from All 4 Design came to the library to measure the office and talk about our needs for the space and will begin to create a design.
