Happy Holidays to our Patrons!

November 14, 2011
Hello! It's been almost a year since I added a note here, so I believe it's time. :)

Another fall here in Bureau, and winter's on the way. We have many new books by authors such as James Patterson, Janet Evanovich, J.A. Jance, and Sue Grafton. These would be nice to read curled up under a warm afghan on a chilly day, feel free to come check one out!

The rearrangement is not progressing as quickly as I'd hoped, but is still in the plan. Soon we'll have a nice reading corner, with a nice "new-to-us" magazine rack.

Hoping to form some sort of women's group for a regular evening meeting, too - anyone have any ideas? Sewing/knitting/crochet circle? Book club? Bridge games? C'mon, ladies of Bureau, let's have a bit of fun!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

SO happy about this, I can't tell you. :)

Now I can attempt to continue with rearrangement plan I've had on the drawing board for the last year.

Catching up on this and that...

Recent budget cuts and shortages have caused some changes in our library system, PALS (Prairie Area Library System).

As I understand it, the system will be merging with all other library systems in the state of Illinois, to form one statewide system. (with the exception of Chicago, who will still have their own separate setup.)

Sadly, we've also lost the assistance of several PALS people who used to make life much easier for us librarians. Most notable among these losses, to me, is that of Nanc...

We've recently received a fairly large quantity of books from the Utica Public Library. Many of them are very new, printed in 2008 or 2009.

Come on in and check them out - many popular authors.
