Thank you to all of our patrons for another fantastic year! We have really enjoyed working with you to improve services to our entire community, and your ongoing feedback on our future is incredibly valued!
We recently worked with Library employees, Library Board of Trustee members, and our Friends of the Library Board to revamp our mission. We came up with four core values that do and will inform everything we do as a part of the Rice Lake community. From participating in the holiday parade, to manning a booth at the County Fair, we believe in community. From free digital materials and ereaders, to library fee reduction programs, to home delivery, we believe in access for everyone. From warm greetings, to fair and flexible policies, we believe in service. And from a wide breadth of materials to creating a third space for our patrons from all walks of life, we believe in the public good.
These ideals will help us move forward in the new year and the years to come as we begin a library capital campaign, as we increase our outreach services, as we continue to serve your needs for self education, for literacy, for entertainment, and for enlightenment. Thank you for offering us that opportunity every day.
Happy new year!
