Finally, I can claim that my New York State Department of Libraries Annual Report has been filed for the 2013 year. Whef! I know of other municipal librarians who moan and groan about the laborious process. Yes, I agree that it is a huge undertaking. However, it is a good exercise is retrospectively looking at what we do and how we can better serve our community’s library needs. It is a good reminder to keep accurate records and statistics to paint a picture of what the LaGrange Library does and how financial support is managed. As a public record, this document, as is any New York State Library Annual report , is available by contacting the Department of Libraries for a copy.
