Library Week (Apr 13-19 - 2014)

Did you know?

In 2013, the Neillsville Library checked out over 60,000 items. Through VCAT, Neillsville patrons received over 10,000 from other libraries and sent out over 6,800 items to other libraries for their patrons. The Neillsville Library has four public access computers for people to use. During 2013, more that 7,000 people used the computers. Patrons can print off of the Internet for 20¢ a page. Other services provided include proctoring exams, children’s story hour, adult book club, presentations and income tax forms. The library also subscribes to local newspapers including The Clark County Press, The TRG, the News Herald, The Leader-Telegram, and The Milwaukee Journal. The Clark County Press is available on microfilm back to the 1880s.

The Neillsville Library invites everyone to visit the library during National Library Week to participate in the special activities offered. These include:

Monday - Kick off with “Guess the Jelly Beans in the Jar,” Prizes for winners who guess the closest correct or the correct number will be drawn the following week. Also, patrons may fill out a Patron Survey. Tell us what we do well and what we can do better. Visitor feedback on library services is important.
