Many of you are aware of the break down of Illinois Library Systems due to the state’s financial situation. We are a member of the Metropolitan Library System, and while we do not directly receive money from the system, the services it provides are very valuable and the
loss of two major services, delivery and SWAN (online catalog), may have a serious effect on all public libraries. Currently, the funding of
delivery (Interlibrary Loans, holds, etc.) and our online catalog are guaranteed until June 2011 due to current systems receiving their final
2010 payments. Systems have been directed by the State Library to merge from 9 to 2 systems - North and South, with no guarantee of
any future funding. The Board and staff at the Riverside Public Library are being very cautious during this period of uncertainty. We may
have to take on the additional financial responsibilities of delivery and assume total costs for our on-line catalog, and if that occurs, we
may need to address changes in Interlibrary loan and hold limits and costs. We will keep you, the taxpayers, informed of the Library
Systems’ status. While we have no current need to change any of the services at present, we ask that you continue to be responsible in
your Interlibrary loan/hold requests and pick up these materials in a timely fashion. All libraries in the current Metropolitan Library System are dedicated to continue to provide the highest quality of library services possible to all our patrons.
What a year to join the Friends - - the Library is enjoying their 80th
year of service to the community, and the Friends are preparing for
their 80th year of support of the Library by unveiling their new logo!
By making a donation to the Friends, you give them the ability to
make donations to the Riverside Public Library. The Library, in turn,
uses these donations to provide special services, programs and
equipment which benefit all patrons. Friends help friends and everyone wins! This year we are planning a special way of showing our
appreciation of your “friendship” with a FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY
Yard Sign for all households that donate. Donate before April and we will deliver your yard sign to
your house after all the election signs are down! As a member of the Friends of the Library, you are
also entitled to special perks that include a $10 savings on our Riverside Afghan and a pass to our
preview night at our Annual Book Sale in September. All contributions to the Friends are tax deductible, and any donation over $50 earns the donor a choice of a premium (umbrella, mug, glasses,
pack of note cards, lunch bag, pen or bookmark). Donations can also be made with major credit
cards or electronic checking through E-Pay on the Library’s website: www.riversidelibrary.org. The
current Friends of the Library Officers are: Ruth Julian, President; Kimberly Keldermans, Treasurer;
Diane Harris, Secretary; and Sarah Nielsen, Fundraising Chairperson.
