To thank our community for its generous support, we've installed a donor acknowledgement near the front door, by the Reception Desk. As our budget has declined over the last few years, your financial contributions are very important in helping us support our programs and services. Check it out next time you are in the library. Get more information on our 2012 budget or ways to make a contribution. To see what we accomplished with your help in 2011, take a look at our annual report.
Our 2009 Annual Report is now available. Our sincere thanks to all of you who supported the library in 2009 — patrons, volunteers, Friends of the Library, and contributors to our Endowment and Operating Funds. While the recession has affected our bottom line, the library Board of Trustees and our great library staff remain committed to continuing our core services to you and demonstrating good stewardship of your tax dollars and donations. For example, we are presenting our annual report in an online-only format for the first time, which reduces our design, printing, and mailing costs. Placing our annual report online also achieves one of our strategic planning objectives: Being more transparent about our operations and communicating more directly with you, our public.
