Mooers Library receives facelift

Madison said she has been scouting the area for free office supplies, receiving many from Pfizer Inc.

She is also looking to add a new computer to the children's room in the basement, which will not have access to the Internet, but can be used for games.

"We're not going to have the Wi-Fi or anything in that place because we don't have any supervision in that area constantly," explained Madison.

Since becoming director, Madison has also made changes to the library's hours of operation, changing Thursday hours from 2 to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

"On Thursday, our old hours were from 4 to 7 p.m. Not a lot of people came in [that late]," she said. "People are probably preparing for dinner, getting ready for the next day."

Prior to the change, Madison said she would see maybe five people visit the library. Now, the number has doubled.

With all the changes, Madison is hoping people will give her feedback.

"I am seeking input from the community. This is not my library, it's the community's library," she said.

To contact Madison, e-mail her at moorlib@primelink1.net, call 236-7744, or stop by the library, located at 2430 U.S. Route 11.
