Director’s Report
Let me begin by thanking everyone involved with the Adams County Library System for the completion of another very successfulyear. This could have been a very difficult year based on the state budget cuts we faced, but the staff and volunteers of the libraryreally worked hard to make 2004 one of the best years for the Library System.In 2004, the Library System lent more than 534,000 items. That is 5% more than we circulated last year. We registered more than3,900 new borrowers. That is more than the number of people in who live in Carroll Valley Borough. In total, the library had46,712 currently registered borrows, or 51% of the county.In 2004, the Library System added 14,488 items to the collection. That includes more than 12,000 books and more than 2,000videos and audios. The circulation of video and audio materials increased by more than 35% in the year.We also expanded our Adult Programming offerings. In March, the Library System partnered with Gettysburg College to sponsorAdams County Reads One Book. More than 2000 Adams County residents took part in this program. Also, in October, the LibrarySystem partnered with six other county libraries to sponsor ‘One Book, One Community: Our Region Reads’.During the summer, the Library System hosted the Discover New Trails @ Your Library program. This is a multi-state themedsummer reading program honoring the anniversary of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. With magicians, story tellers, puppets andmost importantly reading, the summer program provided educational activities for more than 1,800 Adams County children.Expanding our partnership with the Adams County Historical Society, the Library System was able to initiate the first digitalobituary index of the Gettysburg Times on our library website. This index will help genealogists and local families to findinformation on their relatives.As we look to the future, the Library System has begun the process of replacing the Bookmobile. After 15 years of trusty service,the Bookmobile is beginning to show its age.On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Staff of the Adams County Library, I would like to take this opportunity to thank theAdams County Commissioners for their continued support. Without their local support, none of the above educational activities andservices would be possible.On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Administration of the Adams County Library, I would like to thank the staff for theirefforts to serve the residents of Adams County. Without your dedication, the above educational activities would not have beenaccomplished.Also, we would like to thank the volunteers whose dedication and effort makes the above educational activities so much easier tocarry out.Finally, we would like to thank the Friends of the Library whose additional financial support has helped to keep the library movingforward.We look forward to serving all the residents of Adams County in 2005.Submitted Respectfully,Rob LesherApril 21, 2005
