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
, they will hold their yearlyMembership Luncheon to recruit new members, renew old
memberships, and elect new officers for 2012. It has been a

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,
, 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
 Anson County North Carolina Deed  Abstracts, 1749
1766, Abstracts of Wills &
 Estates, 1749
 both books compiled by Brent H. Holcomb, C.A.L.S.
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.
Friends of the Library Annual Meeting – Put this on your calendar: The Friends’ Annual Luncheon will be held in theWest Wing of the Library on Monday, January 30th at noon.Come a little early with a covered dish and enjoy one of Ozark’s best meals. If you work and find cooking difficult,don’t let this keep you away. You may prefer to make a dona-tion toward the meat course or purchase a tray from a localgrocery or restaurant.The Annual Meeting is the occasion for year 
end reports, payment of dues, election of officers, and some light enter-tainment. Letters will be sent to members in early January toallow early payment of dues to avoid waiting in line at theluncheon. Anyone who wants to join the Friends is invited toattend. Membership forms are always available at the LibraryCirculation Desk.
very special year for them and for us. We say thank you to our Friends for all their hard work and devotion to our Library.We are now ready to prepare for a new year and a new be-ginning. Because you are our most important asset, we mustnot lose sight of the fact that without you, we would not exist.Therefore, we pledge our service to you and encourage you tomake suggestions for ways we can improve our services to our community. We are never too busy to listen to your construc-tive criticism.
