Annual Report to the Community

2021 Annual Report

As COVID-19 continued to limit in-person services through the spring of 2021, we continued to offer virtual programs, curbside pickup, and access to e-books and audio books through the four-county OWWL system. In the spring, we launched daytime programs in the village halls. Unable to offer our usual summer programs in the library due to the school’s need for the facility, we implemented a robust schedule of programs in the village parks, along with evening and Saturday events at the library.  We delivered more than $246,000 in value to the community.

Voters approved our 2021-2022 budget of $243,079 in May. The approval rate of 62% was similar to the approval rate of 66% in 2020 when ballots were mailed to all households. More budget info.

2020 meant flexibility and brought new remote and online services

When the COVID-19 pandemic closed the library in early 2020, we implemented a wide range of virtual programs and services. We worked through the school’s renovation project that included new carpeting. We installed new public computer workstations and an ADA compliant circulation desk for the community library. See how we calculated the value we delivered. Additional 2020-2021 budget information.
