We are pleased to welcome Mary Koch as the new Adult Programming Coordinator at the Library. Koch, who joined the Library staff at the end of January, will partner with Library staff, other program coordinators, the Friends of the Library, and local businesses to grow the current programming efforts and develop an even greater diversity of programs offered at the Library. The Library currently hosts a variety of programs and outreach missions, serving as a hub of information, resources, and activity for the Danville-Boyle County area. “I am excited and enthusiastic to serve as one of the many connectors in this great hub of information,” says Koch.
In February, Koch introduced the Parent Play Date program, which currently meets on Tuesday afternoons at 4:00 pm in the Children’s Library and features guest speakers who cover different topics each week including “Fun Foods,” “Saving for Your Child’s Future,” and “Keep Your Child Safe.” Koch has also organized a Scrabble Madness Tournament, a Beginning Chess Workshop, and is helping to coordinate the Spring Break Stay-cation event that will run from March 31 through April 4, 2014, ending with the Edible Book Festival on Saturday, April 5th. Koch also plans to bring summer music concerts, guest speakers, and a literacy festival to the Library. “Every program offered through the Library is completely free and open to the public,” says Koch. “I am hopeful that everyone will find a way to take advantage of our resources.”
