Tama Library News

From Julie Shook - Library Director , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Library Changes:

The library staff has been very busy this winter rearranging many sections of the library-starting last fall. Daylight harvesting sensors were installed in the main room of the library and occupancy sensors were installed in the hallway and restrooms in an effort to save money on the utility bill and do our part to be "green". Shelving was moved by some great city employees including the street, water, sewer departments and ambulance, Fire and Police Department personnel. Moving the shelving helped let in more light and helped with the overall layout of the library.

Movie Days:

There are only two more movie days left before our library hours change to our summer hours. Sunday, April 13, we will be showing Ender's Game and on Sunday, April 27, we will be showing Catching Fire. Starting in May and continuing until October, library hours will be: M & W: 12-5 T & TH: 12-8 Fri: 9-5. We will be closed weekends.

Ink/Toner/Phone Recycling:

I want to remind all of you that we are still taking your Ink and toner cartridges and old cell phones for recycling. So far in 14 months we have recycled 142.5 lbs. which includes: 31 cell phones, 69 inkjet cartridges, and 91 Toner cartridges. We've earned a total of $134.40 and saved room at the landfill. Drop your used cartridges and cell phones at the library. Help us and the environment!
