As part of the Library’s strategic plan, the Library Board contracted with the architectural firm of Nagle Hartray & Associates to complete a thorough facility analysis. Their report pointed out many repairs to the Library building that must be completed over the next five years. The Library Board has prioritized the most urgent repairs to be addressed this year and is developing a timeline for completion of the remaining repairs over the next four years. Their report, with recommendations for mechanical, electrical, plumbing and technology needs and updates, can be found here: VPPL_ FACILITY ANALYSIS REPORT_with appendices. Please contact Library Director, Sandra D. Hill, if you have any questions regarding this report.

Tee Time @ the Library
We’re back this year with more Tee Times! Tee Time @ the Library, the unique event where you can miniature golf through the library’s book stacks, will be expanded to two dates this year. Two ways to play:
Sat., Apr. 11 • 7:00–10:00 p.m. — NEW! Adults-Only Tee Time event: themed mini-golf, plus music, appetizers and adult beverage tastings.
Sun., Apr. 12 • 11:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m. The Family-Fun Tee Time you know and love: themed mini-golf, balloons, entertainment and concessions.
Have fun and help kids learn: By attending one or both mini golfing events, you’ll be supporting the library’s Early Literacy Initiative. So reserve your tee time now.
Why transform the Library into a miniature golf course? To raise money for the Library’s Early Literacy program. If you’re a local business looking for a creative way to increase exposure in the community, the Library is currently looking for sponsors. It’s a great advertising opportunity, it’s for a great cause, and it’s tax deductible. Please take a moment to read this letter from our Library Director Sandra Hill.
Ready to sponsor? Great! You can download the sponsorship form one of two ways:

We will be making some changes this winter. We will be consolidating service points on the first floor in order to improve service for our patrons. In addition, we will be adding some new shelving for DVDs and expanding our high school area. Look for these changes to start mid-February.
