Dear Friends,

“Libraries always remind me that there are good things in this world.” 
                                                                                                        -Lauren Ward
 
2021 has been a year when we learned to be flexible, adjusting to the prevailing pandemic situation in the community and the county.  As the months rolled by, we’ve been able to slowly return to some of our former practices, such as the indoor book drop, in-house programming, and our library book club. Through it all, we’ve worked to continue access to the collection (both physical and digital), and the many services we offer our community, including programming, outreach, story time, one-on-one computer assistance, free wifi, and notarization.

We’ve moved forward with our strategic plan, and have implemented a program of digital library cards for all students enrolled in the Tecumseh Public Schools. We worked on a History Room upgrade, installing a HVAC system to control temperature and humidity in an effort to protect the historic documents stored there. We added another early literacy AWE computer loaded with educational games to our Children’s Area. We’re excited about the 1940-1980 Tecumseh Herald Digitization Project, which will be available for patron use shortly. A Digital Station has been set up for transferring content from one format to another – old home movies to a USB drive, for example.

We’ve also learned a lot about virtual programming and how it enhances our ability to reach a larger group of viewers, as well as the opportunity to bring in presenters from across the country.

At this time each year, we ask for your support of our efforts. Your tax-deductible donations are used to continue the work of those who have gone before, creating a library that is a cornerstone of our community.

Please consider contributing to TDL before the year ends. Your gift can be made online, by mail or in person. Your financial support helps us to continually improve the Tecumseh District Library and the services and resources we provide for our community. Thank you for making this possible.
 

Warmest regards,

Director
