FROM THE DIRECTOR
Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a wonderfulChristmas and is now ready to start a new year. It’s now timeto evaluate our past year and set goals for the New Year.
 
The Library has accomplished much this past year.Thanks to a generous donation from Mr. Hugo Marx, weconverted all our lighting to electronic ballasts. We’vealready seen a decrease in our electrical consumption and it’snice to get reasonable bills from Alabama Power. TheWiregrass United Way gave us funds to purchase newhandicap doors for the main entrance and the West Wingentrance. This money was made possible by a donation fromWiregrass Foundation because United Way met their goal and passed the funds on down to their recipients. These newdoors help us meet standards as set forth by the AmericanDisabilities Act. We also added 15 new computers and newcomputer chairs and tables as a part of a federal grant usingLSTA funds. In August we received 17 new computers fromthe Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) in partnership with Auburn University, Tuskegee University, andAlabama Public Library Service to place computers in ruralareas. This new equipment has enabled us to provide servicesfor those individuals searching for jobs, applying for jobs, or registering for unemployment compensation, and they can doso without having to wait for computer time. In addition, wehave sponsored over 500 juvenile and adult programs, processed over 3,000 new books and materials and spent over $28,000 on new books and materials this year. We’ve had avery busy year.
 
Once again we’ve resisted the temptation to charge for our services as many libraries have done recently because wefirmly believe that Library services should remain free andopen to all our patrons. After all, we are the great equalizer that enables all our people to have the opportunity to excel.It’s a little more difficult to be short of staff and to have tospend much time writing grants, but as long as we have thesupport of our City, County and dear Friends of the Library,we will continue to expend that extra effort so we will be ableto provide free Library services.Our Friends of the Library play a big part in the success of our Library. Under the direction of President ElizabethBabine, they just recently purchased new chairs for our WestWing to replace the worn out ones, and they have sponsoredseveral successful programs for the public. Book SaleChairpersons Roberta Hyers and Pat Walker, along with their volunteers, have worked diligently each week to ensure thatour Book Sale area is well stocked and kept neat for you tovisit and purchase books. They have also worked all year  placing books online through Amazon.com and have held book sales. The proceeds from these sales come directly tothe Library and total $16,353.00. This helps us financially sothat we may offer programs and services to you, the patron.On Monday, January 30
th
, they will hold their yearlyMembership Luncheon to recruit new members, renew old
 
memberships, and elect new officers for 2012. It has been a
FROM THE CREEL RICHARDSON ROOM
 
By Jocelyn Rayford
 
Researchers of North Carolina will be pleased to find aselection of books about census, wills and the heritage of some of  North Carolina’s counties.
 
We have two books containing information from the 1790Census:
 Heads of Families at the First Census of the United States 1790 North Carolina,
 published by
 
GenealogicalPublishing Co., Inc.,
 
and the book 
1790 Federal Census Ansonand Mecklenburg Counties,
 
 N.
 
C.
, published by Now and Then.Also, we have an
 Index to the 1800 Census of North Carolina,
compiled by Elizabeth Petty Bentley, and the book 
1850 Federal Census Halifax County, North Carolina
compiled by DavidBryant Gammon.
 
Information about wills in North Carolina are contained in
 Abstract of North Carolina Wills
by J. Bryan Grimes,
Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, Abstracts of Early Wills1763
-
1790 (1749
-
1790)
and
 Anson County North Carolina Deed  Abstracts, 1749
-
1766, Abstracts of Wills &
 
 Estates, 1749
-
1795,

Also, quite helpful to researchers of North Carolina are theHeritage books. We have Heritage books for the North Carolinacounties of Burke, Cherokee, Cleveland, Davidson, and Iredell.Each book contains sections on the county’s history, families and pictures of local scenes; the format is similar to our AlabamaHeritage books. There is one for each county in Alabama in theGenealogy Room.
