Architecture around the Corner
Nearby on the 1666 AUTHORS shelf find a book by architect Joe Michels featuring his own work. Maybe you’ll discover which Coffman residents lived in these special places. Like the homes they illustrate, the books themselves are treasures. Sign them out; enjoy them; return them for others to enjoy.
Lots New in the Library in 2021
Thanks to everyone for their book donations and to Committee members for their wise book purchases throughout the past year. Special thanks to Catherine Wengler for applying her merchandising savvy to the RECENT AND RELEVANT shelves. Statistics show that residents borrowed 1,301 items from the Library in 2020.
Many thanks to residents for expressing appreciation for the Library via the Long-Range Planning survey. Those sentiments helped justify the Library’s 2021 budget request of $500.
Easier access to Coffman’s Wi-Fi is back. With fewer COVID restrictions, we’ve dropped the one-person-at-a-time rule in the Library. We hope that restriction, along with wipes and gloves, are things of the past.
Newer residents may not know that before the pandemic, the Library Committee sold surplus books. That effort added between $200 and $300 per year to the Library’s coffers. Watch for the book sales cart to return no later than July 1 to its location just outside the Library’s upper level door.
The Library Committee regrets David Klaassen’s permanent move to Michigan. Who knew it would turn into a win-win-win situation? As part of his move, David made unneeded home furnishings/accessories available free to residents. The only condition was that they make a donation to the Library after taking an item. Residents scored some nice home furnishings. David and Anita had fewer possessions to move. Your donations to the Library amounted to a welcome $130. Thank you so much.
