12/03/20 Note from the Executive Director - New Announcements & Happy Holidays

Dear Friends,

We are so very excited to have kicked off our End-of-Year annual campaign, and hope that you can help support this essential institution that serves over 760,000 people each year. This year has been challenging for everyone, nevertheless the Mandel Public Library is working hard to ensure it does not stay that way. They have been delivering vital community services in new ways, providing virtual resources like Homework Centers, Job Help, and Wellness classes for our patrons. Please consider a year-end gift to the Foundation, so that we can continue providing these critical services.

While we have gone virtual for many programs, our Homework Centers have also adapted for in-person learning for our young students in need. We know virtual learning is not the best option for everyone, and our staff and teachers have incorporated new safety protocols including glass partitions, masks, and more to allow these little ones to get help.

Finally, we are excited about the launch of two new features: a modern and more functional website and new library tours. Please peruse our contemporary look online and find more information about everything we are doing, and don’t hesitate to share your thoughts with us. And our new one-hour library tours will take place every week (masks mandatory, limited to five people per tour), providing a behind-the-scenes look into this important community resource. We welcome you to come see and learn how your support directly impacts local kids, teens and adults.

Thank you for all of your support throughout the year. We could not do this work without our dedicated team, volunteers, and donors.

Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season,

Dean W. Dimke
