LEE, WARREN COUNTY, IOWA Mayor's Moment By Mayor Doug Pierce As I stated last month, I am writing articles in regard to the ever-increasing de- mands being placed on the services provided by the City of Norwalk. This month, I am going to talk about the Library with some examples of the "growth" that it is experiencing thanks to the superb efforts of Holly Karlen, Library Director and the staff. Last year, the Library had over 71,000 visitors. By comparison, at the six month point of this year, there have been over 41,000 visitors, so if this rate continues, it can be projected that there will be an increase of over 10,000 over last year's numbers. Therefore, 80,000 plus is not an unrealistic utilization expectation this year. Last fiscal year, the Library had 16 adult programs; however, that has now been increased to 39 with many more planned for the rest of this year. Additionally, the Summer Reading Program had 990 children signed up last year and the expectation for this year is that it will easily exceed 1,000. If you combine that with an added Adult Summer Reading Challenge, it is making the case that we are rapidly "outgrowing" our library, especially when you consider that Norwalk is increasing in population at the rate of 7-10% each year which, obviously, will result in an escalating utiliza- tion. I attended the Library Board's monthly meeting on February 13 and after all the program/event information had been presented by Holly, it became apparent that in the near future, we will need to be seriously considering a library expansion. Again, a good problem to have but it shows the ever-increasing demands being placed on our Departments. I want to thank the Library Board (Tom Dunn, Chair; Diana Duffy, Laura Greiner, Jordyn Hill, Andrea Johnson, Donna Kitterman and Dick Schreiber, Secretary) for their dedicated efforts to make our Library so supportive of the needs of Norwalk. The Norwalk Library originally opened its doors March 5, 1962 -- fifty years ago. Because of this significant "Golden Anniversary," the Library will be celebrating this event for the rest of the year with a variety of programs and events for the commu- nity. More information will be coming out about this and I urge you to take part in this celebration and let the Library Board, Holly and the staff know how much they are appreciated.
