Library board meets in Crothersville

Community Services Manager Bill Anderson reported on programs at the Crothersville and Medora libraries and Discovery Bus stops and programs when the Jackson County Public Library board of trustees met Monday at the Crothersville Library.

Anderson’s goals are to increase circulation, programs and community involvement at all of those locations. New programs this spring and summer are monthly Saturday movie matinees and a three-week coffee and canvas workshop at both branches.

The board approved the Medora Library closing May 12 for a second coat of interior painting and new mulch during the Jackson County United Way Day of Caring. The Crothersville Library also will receive new mulch and a replacement tree, while the Seymour Library will receive new landscaping.

New bushes and plants will be paid for with $1,141 in library endowment funds from the Community Foundation of Jackson County and a $500 gift from the Friends of the Library.

The board also approved proposed changes to the circulation policy to include the new Kindle Fire HDX, Playaway Bookpack and Playaway Launchpad.

The next board meeting is at 5 p.m. May 18 at the Seymour Library.
