After about a month of hard work moving books and shelving, the Anderson Public Library has officially reopened at its temporary location at 1030B Industry Road today as part of their expansion project.  At last week’s library board meeting, the board and library director, Pam Marks, were amazed at how hard the staff, volunteers from the Friends of the Library, and the movers worked to accomplish the task.

“We have the best staff in the history of the world,” Pam said.   Board chairman, Bryan Proctor, continued, “I’ve been in and out throughout the move and they have been working hard.”  In appreciation for the staff’s dedication to the move process, the board is planning on hosting a luncheon for them during a training day.

At the old location on Main Street, construction is beginning.  The board is planning to host a groundbreaking ceremony during the later half of October, inviting local officials, children, board members and more to shovel some soil in celebration of the start of construction.

Also during the board meeting, Rachel Dockal was voted to be the new vice president, while Bryan Proctor, Chrystal Graham, and Jane Scott Bentley were reelected for president, secretary, and treasurer, respectively.  In addition to a number of other topics, they also discussed looking into developing a program that would allow the library to partner with local businesses who would provide discounts if shown a library card similar to the Paul Sawyier Library program as well looking into an automated DVD dispensing machine and electronic checkout for the new library after the expansion.
