The library’s annual report includes performance data and program highlights for the calendar year 2018.   It was another eventful year for the library.  Here are a few highlights:

  • Completed replacing the original windows with high efficiency manufactured windows.  This has been an ongoing project for the past several years.
  • Created three private study and reading areas using privacy screens.
  • The Children’s Department hosted the first ever Music Over Menomin Jr. concert series.  It featured performers just for K-5 kids and their families on the library lawn.  Mayo Clinic Health Systems partnered with us.
  • Hosted our first outdoor Movies over Menomin on the big screen.
  • Our Menomonie Reads, the library’s community-wide read, was “Montaigne in Barn Boots” Michael Perry’s collection of essays which included a visit from the author.
