Librarian’s Report 

Librarian, Jess Titus, advocated for the wealth of library programming upcoming in the near future and reviewed past programming successes. Mental Health Month programming for May. The library has partnered with the hospital for speakers, workshops, supplies, etc. A related take and make and some self-care strategies. Ford/Iroquois Extension office will do a Container garden series. 

Summer reading programs for children, teens, and adults will begin soon. During March everyone who checked out a movie got a small bag of popcorn. Many positive comments about this activity. Crafts have also received a lot of positive feedback. The library can no longer accept printer cartridges for recycling because Office Depot has measures in place that are not feasible for library compliance.
