The Year in Brief

New Library Trustees Kathy Doyle, Michelle Gooze-Miller, and Joel Shoolin were elected in April 2013. The library appreciates the outstanding service of retiring trustees Barbara Breakstone (8 years), Stephanie Pearce (4 years), and John Tuohy (9 years).

The Library Gets Its Own App The library is always with you when you download our app to your iPhone, Android, iPad, or other tablet. Now you can browse the catalog, renew items, place holds, download ebooks, or ask us a question from anywhere your mobile device takes you.

New Meeting Rooms A conference room for small groups and a staff workroom were built by reallocating space on the lower level. New carpeting was installed on the main, mezzanine, and lower levels and fabric wall panels were replaced.

Tech Tuesdays Patrons received expert guidance on technology through the popular “Tech Tuesdays” class taught by the library’s virtual services librarian.

A new photocopier/scanner provides better copies and, for the first time, public access to a scanning device.

New Computers for Kids An early literacy games computer, featuring a touch screen and over 100 games, adds fun for ages two through teen. A MacBook for in-library use by junior high students provides access to Mac-compatible software for research papers or group study.

The Friends of the Glencoe Public Library celebrated the 50th anniversary of their founding in 1962. The library is very grateful to the Friends for their support of library programs and materials that make the library a more vigorous, modern, and compelling institution. In FY 2012, the Friends generously funded construction of the new conference room as well as reading programs, book discussions, film series, ebooks, music concerts, and more.
