This month, library director, Holly Sorensen, gives you a look at the year ahead for 2013 at the library.
2012 was a great year at the library. Over 500 thousand people visited the library last year. They checked out over 1 million items and came to our popular events and programs.
Usage of our eBooks, downloadable music, and magazines continued to grow as well.
We appeared on Library Journal's list of Star Libraries in 2012. We're one of 20 libraries in Illinois offering you great materials, services and programs.
In 2013, we're going to work to make the library even better for you.
We're upgrading our computer area on the 4th floor. Computers will be centrally located. Finding computers and asking for help will be easier.
We're looking at other ways to improve how you use the library. We're performing a space study to make sure that every part of the library is being used in the best way possible.
It may be virtual, but our website will be upgraded as well. We want to make it timely, easy to use, and beautiful to look at.
We'll continue to expand our collections, offer great programs, and be the best library we can be. So stay tuned for these changes and check our website at dppl.org for information about all of the things we do every day.
