Reconfiguration Project Update
The Howland Public Library expects to be closed for the reconfiguration of our service areas for several weeks starting in April 2010. Details will be publicized as dates are known.
Exciting news! The Library Board voted to create a new Youth Program Room next to the new Children's Area. This room will provide an area for programs, crafts, Homework Center, and many other activities. Donations to purchase furniture for this area are welcome, as furniture is not covered by our grant.
The Howland Public Library Reconfiguration Project is funded by a
generous family bequest; private donations, often in memory of loved ones; grants from Senator Saland and former
Assemblyman Tom Kirwan; and a $51,000 matching grant from New York State Library Construction funds.
Looking out my window, I see 2' of snow and more coming down. I also see the huge oak limb that fell across our driveway last night, effectively keeping us here. I've enjoyed sharing my "day off" with you, and hope this E-News has been an informative diversion for those with electricity. If you enjoyed it, please Stay safe and warm!
