Annual Report 2009
Jennifer West, Director

  
2009 was a year of highs and lows. Each month our Public Library Fund tax distribution dipped below what we'd received in previous years. Then on June 19th Governor Ted Strickland proposed cutting public library funding by 50% in order to balance the state budget! State legislators received over 27,000 emails in 3 days as staff and patrons responded in dismay and a little anger.

When the 2010-2011 state budget bill was finally signed by Governor Strickland, it reduced in temporary law the PLF percentage from 2.22% to 1.97%. This means our funding has indeed been cut, although thankfully nowhere near the proposed 50% mark. However when this reduction is added to the loss in tax revenue due to the continuing slowdown in the economy, public libraries in Ohio are facing a challenging year.

Still there were many highs and much good news in 2009. Our annual circulation rose to 699,007 items, an increase of 26,810 items (4%) from 2008. Our computers were used 48,762 times in 2009 as the public depends on library computers to search for employment, apply for benefits and keep in touch with family and friends. Our computer librarian Brenda Fisher set up several laptops in the board room which has increased the number of public computers at Hillsboro to 17. Now patrons are assured of getting a computer without having to wait for long.

In December 2009, House Bill 318 was passed. Despite its unpopularity, this will help Ohio's public libraries as it postpones the previously approved decrease in the state's personal income tax. This is projected to result in an increase of approximately $8 million in the 2010 Public Library Fund distribution.

The Hillsboro City Schools have moved south of town. We miss the kids and the landmark, as sitting across the road from a vacant lot takes some getting used to. The school continues to allow us to park across the street which helps us enormously.

I continue to attend meetings for "Connect Ohio", a public-private partnership that is working to develop a statewide application for federal broadband stimulus funding. We will be participating in a joint request by Connect Ohio and the State Library of Ohio for stimulus funding to provide public computers.

We will also be receiving replacements for two computers at the Greenfield Branch Library from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. We need to provide matching funds. Greenfield Branch Manager Margaret Magee and I attended the "Turning the Page" library advocacy training held by the Gates Foundation in Columbus, Ohio.

In 2007 SIRSI/Dynix announced they would stop improving the circulation software used by the SEO consortium, of which we are a member. SEO and the State Library of Ohio has been investigating "open source" software and are looking at a version of the "PINES" system developed by public libraries in Georgia.

We helped collect toys for the "Toys for Tots" Christmas program, and books for the AAUW book sale. I participated in Highland District Hospital's 2009 Health Fair, the Hillsboro Rotary 4-Way Speech contest, a health fair for NCB Bank employees, and the first annual Hillsboro Elementary PTO Carnival. Outdated electronic equipment was recycled at the city garage, and we continue recycling paper and cardboard at the Hills and Dales facility. The Hillsboro Garden Club gave us a lovely garden to replace the tree that was uprooted during a storm in February.

2009 ended on a bright note with the Merry Money program. 631 children registered to earn "Merry Money" by reading or being read to, and a total of $8,887 was redeemed at the Christmas stores. This year we were able to use the Alternative School building for the Saturday store, and some of the students helped us set up. A number of Astra teens served as cashiers as well.

We need to be very cautious as revenues may continue to decline. We still do not know the full impact the state budget and the economy will have so we are anticipating as best we can. Our concern is always keeping the library collection and services healthy. Once again I would like to acknowledge the efforts of our library staff. They perform their jobs and serve the community with expertise, patience and good humor.

CHILDREN’S DEPARTMENT --Hillsboro

Written by Joan Cockerill

The Children's Department had a very busy and fun-filled 2009. We presented over 200 story times in the library with about 2,000 children attending. Our outreach story times were presented to almost 1,000 children. We had 36 passive programs with over 5,000 children participating.

We celebrated each month by decorating and having fun with interesting themes. January brought stories of snow, snowmen, winter, Winnie-the-Pooh, Biscuit and gingerbread. In February we celebrated Valentine's Day, Black History Month, "Kiss a frog" and Winter Clothing. March brought stories of wind, St. Patrick's Day, rainbows and leprechauns, spring and a "Party with the Pigeon". In April we celebrated National Library Week with contests ad giveaways. Also the High School Astra Club presented a night of Fairy tales. May was a very busy month. We had stories about Mother's Day, spring, a Paddington party and an introduction to our Summer Reading Club theme of "Be Creative @ Your Library". We visited all the schools in the area to tell them about our summer theme and pass out information. Then Ronald McDonald kicked off our Summer Reading Club with a fun program which stressed the benefits of reading.

During June and July we had over 600 children sign up to read with us and we explored our theme with many "creative" programs. We had many talented guests to teach and entertain the children: Janet Florence played an accordion; Hurd Latimer entertained the children with puppets and stories; a tea party with guest violinist Kelli Burwinkel; musical instruments with Alex Germann; learning to play bells and singing along with flutist Becky Storer; a demonstration and instruction on how to do Polynesian and hula dances by Miss Miranda; and tap and jazz dances by Miss Erika. We also had many "creative" story times: making pictures with flowers, art, colors, music, mixing colors and making volcanoes, sidewalk chalk, and creating with boxes.

During September, we welcomed the children back with stories of returning to school, county fairs, apples and autumn. The children also registered to win school supplies.

Registration for our "Merry Money" Christmas Club started October 1st and continued through November. We had 435 children sign up to receive one "Merry Dollar" for each 30 minutes they read or where read to. October and November story times centered on fall, pumpkins, Thanksgiving, pilgrims, and Indians. Our Christmas store in December was our last big program of the year and was a huge success with only 4 children, who received "Merry Money," not coming to shop.

Each month Dawna Jo Kiesling of the Ohio Extension office provided healthy tips and recipes. We dedicated 21 books to new babies in 2009.

We would like to give special thanks to our Summer Reading sponsors: Diary Queen, Great Scot Community Markets, McDonald's, Bob Evans and Wal-Mart.

GREENFIELD BRANCH LIBRARY

Written by Margaret Magee

2009 at the Greenfield Branch Library was a very busy, but a really great year! Due to the economy things have been difficult for both the library and our patrons and we have many who use our computers to do job searches, apply for unemployment benefits and other needed access. We have registered 720 new patrons in the last year. We presented 245 programs for children, teens, and adults with a total attendance of 3,526.

Children had lots of programs as well. There were 2 story hours each week for ages 2 to grade 6 and a Head Start story time. The Summer Reading program ("Be Creative @ Your Library") started with a kick-off cook-out and we had a total of 424 sign up over the summer, a "Where the Wild Things Are" promotion, and Seasons Readings Christmas Club were the most popular. We gave programs and tours for school classes, 4-H, scout groups, preschool and clubs. We also had a Library Summer Camp with 343 in total attendance, a Kid's Craft Club, the Christmas Gift Shop, Sign Language classes and a Ratatouille Party.

We have worked with many local agencies to provide more and better services. These include Edgewood Manor, Hearth 'N Care, Greenfield Area Medical Center, the City of Greenfield, Highland County Community Action, Concerned Veterans of Greenfield, Greenfield Head Start, Highland County Extension Service, CET, the Greenfield McClain faculty, Highland County Commissioners, Highland County Board of Elections, the Greenfield Rotary Club, the Lions Club, Greenfield Area Merchants Association, Greenfield Historical Society, Scioto Paint Valley Mental Health, Buckskin School, Greenfield Soccer Association, Greenfield Mothers Club, AAUW, and others.

LEESBURG BRANCH LIBRARY

Written by Sharon Aukeman

2009 was a very busy year for us here at the Leesburg Library. We provided many services and programs for our patrons throughout the year; and the Leesburg community supported us with their participation and increased usage of our materials and computers.

Our adult programs included a Ladies’ Summer Tea, perennial exchange, a Senior Fire Safety Program, and our annual Veteran’s Day Appreciation Breakfast program. We also enjoy celebrating the holidays throughout the year so our patrons were able to sample special treats for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, Halloween (Beggar’s Night) and Christmas (Luminaria).

Our children’s programming was exceptional this year. The number of children participating in our two story times continues to grow. The children were able to go to the “beach” in February, search for pirates’ buried treasure in May and were treated to a “Reading Magic” show by “Sharona the Great” in November. We had excellent participation in our summer reading program, “Be Creative at Your Library” as well. Ronald McDonald visited us again this year as well as our friendly park ranger who helped us cast animal tracks. The kids also enjoyed dancing to the beat of the Reading Rocks! Band and watching a puppet show based on Sandra Boynton books. The kids read many books all summer and won lots of cool prizes, too! We also had another successful year of Merry Money. The kids (and parents) look forward to this worthwhile and fun way to buy Christmas presents for their family members.

Our teens have been busy this year, too. They participated in their summer reading program, “Express Yourself at Your Library”. We held a Poetry Reading/Coffee House night and an Art Competition/Show as well as our monthly “SPARX” book discussion groups. We have a great core group of teens and we hope they will be able to encourage more of their friends to participate.

We continue to network with local organizations to provide services and information to our patrons. Some of these programs/organizations include Computer classes, Teacher Outreach, Ohio Benefit Bank, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Leesburg Fire Dept. and Life Squad, Highland County Extension Office and the Leesburg Soccer Association.

We appreciate the generous support of monetary donations provided by the many businesses and patrons of the Leesburg community. Their donations assist us in providing incentives for our summer reading program. We would also like to thank patrons who have displayed items in our show case this year. This year we had patrons share their Santa, Apple and Easter basket collections.

Many local organizations use our community room throughout the year such as Girl Scouts, Retired Teachers, Red Hat Club and the Soccer Club. Our reading groups for kids, teens and adults also use the community room as well as our Knit Together group.

We had two of our staff retire at the end of 2009 bringing mixed emotions to the remaining staff and our patrons. Our hearts are heavy knowing how much we will miss Joy Smith and Patsy Bishop. They were hard-working, faithful library employees. But we are happy to know that they will be enjoying their retirement with their loving families and friends, and we look forward to their visiting us here at the library in the future. The rest of the staff continues to work diligently to provide the best possible service to our patrons. Their commitment to this library and the Leesburg community continues to amaze me. I truly appreciate all they do!

Leesburg Staff: Sharon Aukeman, Branch Manager; Becky Howard, Joy Smith, Louise McKamey, Patsy Bishop, Shirley Fetters and Myrna Reno.


LYNCHBURG BRANCH LIBRARY

Written by Elaine Williams

We at the Lynchburg Branch would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks for the tremendous outpouring of support shown by our patrons when the library faced the possibility of huge budget cuts in 2009. So many community members sent emails and letters to the governor and to our legislators to express what the library means to them and to Lynchburg. Well over 300 people signed a petition that was sent to the governor’s office also. As the time for the vote at the state level drew nearer, our patrons made phone calls and posters, passed out flyers in the village, and even got the word out on their blogs that the library needed support. From Columbus, word reached us that the governor’s office is now well aware of a little village called Lynchburg! Thankfully, the budget cuts, although significant, were not as devastating as they could have been. We will do everything in our power to make sure that you, the taxpayers, continue to be satisfied with the library services you receive for your hard-earned dollars. T anks also to Lynchburg Mayor Jeremy Shaffer, for taking his support of our branch all the way to the Governor, and to the library board for its caution in dealing with this crisis.

In order to meet the needs of the community, the Lynchburg Branch continued to offer free Internet access. The library has become the place to job hunt, take online classes, find a proctor to administer distance-learning program exams, and learn computer skills. Our computer services librarian, Brenda Fisher, offered two sets of computer & Internet classes instead of just one in 2009. As always, these classes are free to the public. Library staff also scheduled some one-on-one computer tutoring for those who could not attend the classes.

Dawna Jo Kiesling from the OSU Extension Office offered some valuable programs at the library. Her information on Thrifty Food Shopping and Stretching Your Dollar at the Grocery was very timely and helpful. Other adult programs included the popular Pageturners Book Club and Knit-N-Stitch gatherings, plus our annual Spring & Christmas Teas. The Lynchburg Historical Society continues to meet on the first Monday of each month in the library’s meeting room.

2009’s Summer Reading Clubs for children, teens, and adults all featured the theme of Be Creative @ Your Library. This theme allowed for all kinds of creative opportunities, such as ScrapBookers for adults, Creative Writing and Theater Games for teens, and story times and crafts for kids, ranging from All That Glitters to All About Me. Two of the teens who attended our Creating Writing Ideas for Teens used the ideas they heard that day to achieve success with their poems! One had his first poem published in a magazine, and another won two first place ribbons for her creative writing at the 2009 Highland County Fair. Congratulations!

Teen and adult volunteers contributed a great deal to our library in 2009. Throughout the spring and summer, these generous helpers gave their extra time to help us prepare for the summer reading clubs, shelve items, copy brochures and flyers, organize supplies, pull books, prepare story time crafts, and assist with children’s programs. Volunteers were also essential to the success of our annual Merry Money Christmas Shop in December. Several young ladies sorted and applied prices to the merchandise throughout October and November, and they were also on hand to help children select their gifts during the actual shopping days. We couldn’t have done it without them!

We look forward to serving the community in 2010.
