At Tuesday night’s Flin Flon City Council meeting new Library Administrator Elizabeth Andres spoke on their plans for this year. She noted Saturday opening has proven to be very successful with 80 people in during their 4 hours being open. Saturday openings and Monday closing will continue during their winter hours moving back to Saturday closing and Monday opening for the summer. She noted their goal is to increase circulation numbers this year with 20 new members signed up in the past week alone and they are planning to bring in more types of books people are looking for. They also plan to increase the programs available including inviting groups to come in and provide information on the programs they offer. They will soon wrap up their logo contest and will begin a rebranding process so people know the library is about more than a place to get books.
Andres added due to the number of books not returned in past years a new library policy will require you to show your library card whenever you take out books and you will be responsible to return all books on your card or for the cost of books not returned. She urges everyone to visit the library and get a card which can also be used to borrow audio and ebooks using the Libby library app.
