Battle of the Books

I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone involved in the Battle of the Books. The Library has another successful Battle of the Books with at least, i believe, over 400 in attendance of the the three days. I want to thank in particular April Nicely, Nancy Synder, and Laura Butler. It is another example of what a outstanding staff our library has! Congratulations to Southwood Jr, High and Sharp Creek Elementary for winning the event.

The Library purchased the house across the street (189-191 W Hill Street/next to the Dr. James Historical Home) at the end of 2009 for the purpose of creating additional parking. Additional parking has been a need for a number of years particularly during times of library programming. At the Board Meeting on November 24th, 2009, it was decided to tear down current structure and adding parking in its place. This decision was made after through discussion and consideration! As an institution that values the cultural heritage and history of the community, the library respects the importance of preserving cultural history and heritage. After consideration of many factors, it was decided that parking was the best option in serving patrons. The Library anticipates the demolition to begin within the next few days.

We thank you for your corporation during the demolition time. If you have any questions, please contact the Director, Ware W. Wimberly III, at (260) 563-2972.

Suggestions for improving Wabash Carnegie Public Library's website

We're about to meet with our website designer, so if you have some comments about the Wabash Carnegie Public Library website, leave your opinions, questions, comments, complaints, suggestions, etc. in the comments. So think about this and let us know:

1. Is there something missing from the library website that you'd like to see?

2. Is the library website easy to use, or could it be simplified?

3. Could we jazz the website up to make it more fun or interesting?

*Want to thank Laura Beutler for providing these questions
