Library Director’s Report to Haddonfield Public Library Board of Trustees, March 28, 2017

In March, the Library hosted a variety of lectures:

  • March 9th – the launch of the new seed library and screening of documentary “Seeds of Freedom”
  • March 16th – Rick Bonnette for a free performance as Mark Twain commenting on American politics
  • March 21st – Richard Greene and Joseph Getsinger presented on the influence of Will Eisner and a recent discovery of Will Eisner comic strip plates
  • March 27th – Screening of the documentary “Life Animated”

Progress on the website redesign is going well. We’ve conducted 1 round of alpha testing, in which a panel of staff tested the pages and reviewed the content.  Edits were suggested and are being implemented.  A beta test round will be soon be scheduled which will involve invited participants from multiple demographic groups.

Ken Ditmars has conducted his audit visits and his tests found no irregularities.  He reviewed his findings with Dennis and myself on Tuesday March 21st and will come to the March 28 meeting at 8:30 to review his report with the full board.

National Library Week is April 9-15.  We would like to run a fine-free amnesty week starting on Saturday April 8th, ending on April 17th.  Additionally the Library will launch 2 new collections in Hoopla: ebooks and comic books.

Work is progressing on a “I Got My First Library Card Today” backdrop, featuring beloved children’s book characters, too be used for photos in the children’s department.

The schedule for the Library’s summer academy classes is finalized and will go out to the public with the April 1 newsletter, social media, and the local papers.

Thank you as always for your support!

Respectfully submitted by Eric Zino, Library Director
