Review/Change of Agenda Review Last Meeting's Minutes Director's Report During the month of January, we had 4,563 vis- itors. The library circulat- ed 6,331 physical items and 193 items within Wil- bor (our digital collection), for a total of 6,524. There were 42 new accounts cre- ated throughout the month. January saw eight adult programs, 19 children's programs, and one teen event. For the adults, we had 32 participants, major- ity of those participants were part of our Novel Year program and our Learn@ your library pro- grams. Children's pro- gramming, including our story times, saw 200 par- ticipants. We did not have any teens show up for our Teen Lego club. We are hoping to develop some new teen programming that will attract teens to the library. The majority of the month was spent on up- dating policies for our ac- creditation with the State of Iowa. We have also been working, and will continue to work on the strategic planning 5-year plan for the library. Our hope is to have a complet- ed plan as soon as possi- ble as a guide to where the library is headed over the next few years.
