We Have Grown

October 26, 2022
I don't know if people read these blog post, however, I write here for my own vanity/ego ;-)

At last month board meeting i revealed that I surpassed the daily tally(from 2021) for our services. I double nearly every single number, in one case tripled. Some services weren't provided in previous years, so it'll be up to me to surpass those numbers next year. We finally have wi-fi and you can renew license stickers here as well. I may be patting myself on there back a bit much. However, after having no career for over 5 years it's been exhilarating to find something and change everything for the positive. Don't ever give up people. It's always darkest before the dawn and you need the bad in life to appreciate the good. 
Have a good autumn I'll post again in December.

P.S. Come check out a book I'd love to see you!

We are going to be offering Wi-Fi services before the end of next month. Our hours have changed and will most likely change again in wintertime.

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-...

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

December 10, 2010
Hello, all, hope your holiday season is going well.

Here at the library I've put up the little Christmas tree, and lights in the window, and I'm hoping my patrons and library friends will come in and check out the holiday books section - maybe you'll find some good ideas for gifts or entertaining.

We have another recent addition to our reference section! A full 20-volume set of "How it works - Science and Technology" was recently donated by the Lemont Public Library District. This is a lovely s...
