Lillie M Evans Library
September Events

LME Library Open House September 11

In celebration of our recent remodeling projects, the Lillie M. Evans Library District will be hosting an open house on Wednesday, September 11, with a reception from 4:30-6:30pm.  Please join us for refreshments and to view the completed capital improvements. 

The renovations included several projects.  In the first phase, we replaced the doors at our library entrances with tempered glass to improve safety and energy efficiency.  We also repainted the interior a warm color to make the library a more inviting place.  Finally, we addressed the library's flooring.  The fraying, stained carpeting has been replaced with a wood look vinyl plank and new carpeting designed to resist and hide stains.  The goal of these capital improvements was to improve the overall condition and aesthetics of the library interior.

The LME Library offers a variety of resources to our users.  The library supports economic development by providing resources on business and entrepreneurial issues.  We offer technology training as well as free internet access.  We provide resources and assist in locating informational and recreational materials.  We are a public building that is open 50 hours per week.  In FY13, 35,002 visitors came to the library, and we circulated 47,803 items. 

In conjunction with the open house, we will be remembering the events of 9/11.   There may be nothing more antithetical to terrorism, hatred, and fanaticism than the American public library.  In 1953, President Dwight D. Eisenhower wrote, "our librarians serve the precious liberties of our nation: freedom of inquiry, freedom of the spoken and written word, freedom of exchange of ideas. Upon these principles, democracy depends for its very life, for [libraries] are the greatest sources of knowledge and enlightenment."  We believe there can be no more appropriate commemoration of September 11, 2001 than for libraries to continue to promote understanding, to guarantee freedom of access to information, and above all, on that particular day, to stand with doors wide open as a remarkable symbol of our freedom.
