Library looks to the future
The Mountain Home Public Library Board of Trustees met on May 2 to go over changes to the rental policy for the conference room, the purchase of security gates, a bathroom remodel and the library's goals for the next ten years.
The library was setting out their ten year goals to go with the city's comprehensive plan that they have been working on. Library Director William Lamb and his staff came up with five goals for the public library.
Goal one was to identify and ease barriers to open access for all. The three action steps they came up with to achieve this was to: one-work with staff and patrons to determine what barriers exist, two- work with trustees to change policies that are counter to opening access and three- work with the city council and community to expand the existing library or open a library branch location. Lamb said he is thinking a branch off of Air Base Road somewhere would be best.
