R I V E R S I D E P U B L I C L I B R A RY NEWSLETTER AND PROGRAM GUIDE WINTER 2011 THE STATE OF THE STATE LIBRARY SYSTEMS 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. THE SIGN OF FRIENDSHIP! SUPPORT THE FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY 2011 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!

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.
