It is hard to believe that the Hazel Mackin Community Library has been in its new building now for a little over a year! As they say, build it and they will come...and the public has responded by setting records for circulation and attending events. We have not only grown in circulation numbers but also our programs offered to the public. Current programing offered:
**Please email us to receive a newsletter with library events or scroll down the sidebar on the left and click on "Newsletter".
Other Services offered at the library: Wi-Fi, public computers, faxing ($.50 a page) & copies ($.10 each).
The library also belongs to the MORE System, a service from the Indianhead Federated Library System which supports a consortium of 53 libraries in West-Central Wisconsin. This service offers our patrons the convenience of borrowing materials from the other libraries in the system at no additional charge to have items brought right here to our library. Items can be requested in person or online at www.more.lib.wi.us.
Our library staff has grown also due to the increase in usage and in anticipation of extending our library hours in 2012. Currently the staff consists of Brenda Hackman-Director; Krissa Coleman-Youth Services Librarian; Linda Esch-Library Aide; Gayle Liverett-Library Aide & Nathan Bringgold-Library Page. We are also thankful for our volunteers especially Mary Harmon, Mary Tharp & Peter Close that help out on a consistent basis.
Fundraising- Fundraising for a library is an on-going process to raise money to provide services for the public. The library does have a box for patrons to donate their used ink cartridges that we send in for profit. We also have an on-going "Used Book" sale where we sell donated books and movies at a great price!! Good Neighbor Day Weekend (first weekend in June) we also have large book sale in our Community Room. Donations may be dropped off the week after Memorial Day for the sale.
The library provides current reading material, movies and music and realizes the importance of the current technology trends. The Hazel Mackin Community Library has invested in eReaders to allow its patrons to check out the devices giving them the opportunity to explore the eReader world. If you currently own an eReader, you may borrow eBooks thru the library system.
Our friendly staff looks forward to assisting you & your families when you visit the Hazel Mackin Community Library.
