The upcoming Thanksgiving holiday makes me realize how very thankful I am for the Drake Public Library and for those of you who support us. The Friends of the Drake Public Library fund children’s programming and so many other things! Thank you for working very hard to make sure that our library has whatever we need. Our Drake Public Library Foundation raises and manages funds through memorials and large donations. Thank you for ensuring the future of our library and our services.
Our library Board of Trustees is a strong support for me. Thank you for planning for the future, assisting me in developing policies, and advocating for the library throughout the community. The City of Centerville provides funding for the library and I am thankful to have strong leaders within the City Council, the Mayor’s office and administrative team to help me and support the library.
The staff at Drake Public Library has some of the hardest working people I’ve ever met. Thank you, Beth, Julie, Kristin, Pam, Chaz and our volunteers John, James and Nikki, for being reliable, knowledgeable, patient and kind. I am very lucky to have these coworkers and friends. Finally, our patrons…because without you, we wouldn’t be here! Thank you for kind words, patience, timely suggestions, interesting conversations, and of course tasty treats! Our patrons are some of the best and the staff at the Drake Public Library is very thankful for all of you.
Please enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday. We will be closed on Thursday and Friday so that our staff can enjoy time with their families. Thank you!
