of the Howard Country Library Board accepted a bid for the roofing
project at its regularly scheduled meeting on April 13. In
addition the board approved the publishing costs for brochures
advertising the library’s outreach program, discussed increasing the
library’s internet bandwidth and learned of a gift from Joe Ohlman.
Earlier this year the board asked Joe
Guest, maintenance consultant, to seek bids for a new roof for the
library after receiving reports that a new roof was the only way to
permanently fix the leaks which have become a recurring problem.
The board accepted the bid from Weathercraft, Inc., of
Jefferson City. Weathercraft will
replace both the roof on the old portion of the library and the flat
roof on the children’s wing.
watching the children enjoy the new read-around furniture purchased
in memory of Virginia Monroe, library patron Joe Ohlman
decided it would
nice if the children also had some new blocks and puzzles to enjoy
in the library. His generous gift will make the purchase of
some new items possible.
Board and book selection committee member
Joe Geist reported that the library had spent $462.82 on books in
March. This amount includes $52.98 for youth books and $409.04
for adult books. Patrons who would like the library to
purchase a particular title should speak to one of the librarians.
