Big Changes at the Vicksburg District Library

Goodbye Rachel!

 

After 18 and a half years, our circulation supervisor Rachel Freeman has decided to retire, “so I have more time to read”, she says.

Rachel has been a part of the Vicksburg District Library for so long that she will be deeply missed.

Rachel ran both a monthly adult book club and monthly knitting club, and was responsible for all adult fiction purchases. She is known for calling library patrons when a new book they would enjoy arrives.

We wish her the very best in all her new endeavors, and will try to only call with questions a few times a day!

 

Welcome Back, Beth!

 

Beth Dowson was previously the Teen and Reference librarian at the Vicksburg District Library, but left to pursue work at the Comstock Library.

We are absolutely delighted that she will be able to return to Vicksburg as the Circulation Supervisor to help fill Rachel’s position.

Beth is excited to return to Vicksburg as well, as she cares deeply for the library and has been a frequent volunteer and supporter.

Please stop in and say Hi! to Beth as we welcome her back and make her feel at home.

Website Showcase: MeLTEENS

Back to school means back to the books for our kids and teens. If you are looking for a reliable, easy to use resource for homework help, check out teens.mel.org, or MelTEENS.

MeLTEENS is part of the Michigan Electronic Library (MeL) website, the same wonderful resource that allows our patrons to access materials from all over the state of Michigan free of charge. The site includes homework tutorials, links to sites on career advice, access to eBooks and audio books, up to the minute information about the college selection process and much, much more.

If you need help with the site, stop on in and we'll be happy to help.
