Read On! Winter Lull

 

It’s the middle of December, so there’s not much new and exciting happening at the Library. We take a break from classes and events each December until after the New Year, so things are pretty quiet these days. 

December seems to be when all of our books come back to the Library, so if you’re interested in binge-reading an entire series this winter, now’s the time to get started. You’ll likely find the whole series on our shelves waiting for you to check it out. 

Of course, quieter times doesn’t mean we’re not busy. We’re getting a lot of in-house chores done like cleaning out storage areas, restocking class and workshop supplies, inventorying our furnishings and collection, etc. 

We’re also using this time to work on some of our Strategic Plan projects. The Library Board decided we will not pursue creating and maintaining a community calendar on the Library’s website – other organizations are tackling this project and we don’t want to duplicate their effort or muddy the waters. 

The Board also decided we will begin the design and writing of an electronic newsletter for anyone interested in hearing from us from time to time. We still have a lot of decisions to make about the newsletter, but you’ll likely hear about it sometime in the new year. 

The biggest item on the Library staff’s Winter-Time To Do List is brainstorming and planning the Summer Reading Program for next year. We average five classes and/or events each week during Summer Reading (not to mention the reading challenge for each age group), so we’ve got a lot to get ready for! 

We’d love to see you this month, but we understand that December gets hectic. Your library is always available online (pryorlibrary.org) if you can’t make it into the building. Ebooks, downloadable audiobooks, and more are just a click away!
