ST. GEORGE The Dorothy Alling Memorial Library will host a second library outreach program at the St. George Town Hall on Thursday, February 23. According to librarian Jill Coffrin, the first session -- held at the end of January -- was a great success. So far, the response from residents of St. George has been a good one, despite the small turnout for January's event. Were just starting out with this program, said Coffrin. We have only done one session so far. Were hoping to get more people as we move forward. The response has been unbelievably positive, but its too early to say how things will look in the near future. The setup for the monthly visit features a wide array of literature for both children and adults. Coffrin said that the library brings illustrated books and new releases that residents can check out and bring home. Additionally, visitors can sign up for a library card with Dorothy Alling and take one home the same night. When books are due to be returned, patrons may drop them off at the Town Hall during normal business hours. The meeting room inside the Town Hall is utilized for the event, and provides a perfect backdrop for those in attendance. The limited space does not serve as a hindrance, said Coffrin. On the contrary, those who attended Januarys program found the meeting room to be bright and cozy, and the kitchen allows volunteers from the library to provide snacks and drinks to the guests. There is also enough space for us to do some small arts and crafts projects with the children, added Coffrin. The outreach program is a major aspect of the librarys five-year plan. According to Dorothy Allings director, Marty Fiske, educating the community about the various services offered by the library is a top priority. This particular event, where we go to St. George, fits right in to the plan, said Fiske. Wed like to spread the word about services we offer, and we feel like the only thing holding us back is that people don't even know about some of our librarys features. Furthermore, Fiske noted that the outreach program is a way of testing whether or not a branch of Doroth Alling would be feasible. Because of zoning laws in Williston, the library can not grow physically on the space where it currently resides. However, a branch would not be out of the question, said Fiske.
