Now that the harsh weather of this past winter is behind us, hopefully we can all start to enjoy some warmer and more pleasant days! Did any of you see us marching in the St. Patrick’s Day parade? I think Huntington considers that the unofficial first day of spring! We lucked out with a beautiful day and it was wonderful to see so many spectators cheering us on as we marched along.
We are busy at the library these days planning our renovation for the Main Library. We have completed the analysis of our collections and are anxiously awaiting some preliminary plans from our space designers.
In response to many patron requests, our new fiscal year budget includes expanding our operating hours to more closely coincide with the school year. We will stay open on Sundays and Friday evenings now from mid-September through mid-June. I thank all of you who came out to vote in our annual Budget Vote and Trustee Election.
