Why didn't i think of that?


Good reads for guys

crooks branch library features a book display for guys

Crooks Branch library (Siouxland) shelves a "Guy Lit" display. "Intense reads for those on the go-looking for adventure."


Madison Public Library lends out framed art prints

Madison Public Library features art available for patrons

Patrons can check out two prints at a time for a length of eight weeks. Patrons enjoy changing out the artwork in their homes and offices and seasonal pictures are especially popular.


Selling Stumpkins

Stumpkins fundraiser for Colton Branch Library's new building

Colton Branch library (Siouxland) volunteers began selling "Stumpkins" last spring as a fundraiser for their new library building. Roxy Ellis, branch supervisor, says they have raised more than $2,000 for the library. The group makes seasonal and made-to-order versions of "Stumpkins".


Alternative shelving method livens up the collection at Edgemont

Edgemont features a new way to shelve books

To shake things up a little, Ashley Courtney decided to give her Westerns a little bit of attention by arranging only every other shelf with the books starting from the right. There are no rules that dictate that all shelves must always be shelved from the left, and with a healthy collection she still has plenty of room to display titles at the end of each row.
