Library Seeks New Patrons in Community
During the week of April 9, Daniel Boone Regional Library will be going out to the public to encourage people to sign up for library cards as part of our celebration of National Library Week. At the same time, people can sign up to win a free Sony e-reader, compliments of OverDrive.
“We know how hard it is for some folks to make time to come to the library, no matter how much they would like to,” said Melissa Carr, Daniel Boone Regional Library director. “Now that you can do so much through our digital branch, more taxpayers can use their library. So, in the spirit of promoting lifelong learning, we want to tell them about our digital services and sign them up for free library cards.”
Library staff will be at different bank locations in Columbia April 9-12 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. People can stop by The Callaway Bank on West Broadway on Monday; at First State Community Bank off Nifong on Tuesday, at Landmark Bank on Stadium on Wednesday and at Commerce Bank on Bernadette on Thursday. These are the same banks the library partnered with for our remote book drop locations. Library staff will also be at The Callaway Bank in downtown Fulton on Tuesday, April 10.
Earlier this year, the library installed a fifth remote book drop at The Callaway Bank on West Broadway. A ribbon-cutting for the new book drop and bank partnership will be Monday, April 9 at 11:30 a.m. The public is welcome to attend.
