Library board discusses new programs

By Staff | Feb 28, 2014

The basement of the Heart of America Library may see more traffic, as discussed during a library board meeting on Monday.

Library director Sheila Craun mentioned the possibility of German classes being taught in the library meeting room. She said that she had been contacted by Sister Jean Louise, who was attempting to bring a retiring German nun stateside. Craun said the whole thing is still up in the air.

Craun mentioned that in addition to the summer reading and story hour programs, a loom weaving class will meet in the basement at noon on Thursdays.

The board discussed a new program that would take place outside of library walls. It would involve sharing books with the hospital and area daycares.

Also discussed were options for shelving upstairs. The Young Adult section was moved to a bigger area upstairs to accommodate more books. The library passed a USDA-mandated civil rights program, as per the conditions of a loan to pay for the elevator project.

In attendance were Craun, board president Wes Sabbe, Rick Larson, Danielle Skjelver, Sandy Mongeon, Arden Warner, Harriet Kreklau and Judy Jelsing.
