DIRECTOR’S REPORT
June 2010
 
  1. Monday, June 7:
The library will be closed on Monday, June 7 from 8:30 a.m. until some time early afternoon. We will be having a staff meeting here first and then we will tour the new Fox Lake Library. Another reason that we’re closed is so that our computer guys can install a new computer rack. They will need to disconnect equipment while they do this. They will also be doing updates on all the public computers.
