Notice of Public Meeting – Springfield-Greene County Library Foundation Board
The Library plays so many unique roles in our daily lives. Depending on your interests, it can be your classroom, your office, a music stage or community hearth where you can gather with friends or simply escape with a good book.
The trust and sense of belonging that people feel about the Library helped drive the 1.9 million visits last year to the 10 branches across Greene County communities. The depth of our online resources – from job listings to e-book downloads to research databases – drove another 3.1 million visits to the website, thelibrary.org. And in its first year, the mobile website had 25,219 website views from mobile devices.
The Library met other community needs in varied ways last year through the help of our donors:
- The Mobile Library has traveled 4,250 miles – 26 stops per week – since it began running in June. The bookmobile enables us to put books, music and movies into the hands of more than 18,000 people.
- More than 3,200 people attended computer skills and professional development classes at the Edge Community Technology Center. In a sign of the times, unemployed adults outnumbered retirees in the classes.
- The Library launched its signature early-literacy program, Racing to Read. Children’s storytimes, early learning centers and parent workshops are geared to help build children’s skills so they’re ready to read and succeed in school.
Librarians are passionate about providing the kinds of instruction and up-to-date materials you expect from your Springfield-Greene County Libraries. They are committed to staying in step with technology, providing the computers, software and classes to help you master new skills – or download free e-books.
Grants and gifts from people who love the Library – like you – help us enhance the rich diversity of resources and programs you’ve come to expect.
As the calendar year draws to a close, we encourage you to make a gift to the Library Foundation Annual Fund. With your help, we can continue providing the kinds of welcoming spaces and important services that can transform lives.
