Meeting space is limited. Priority is given to library programs and our community non-profit partners on a first request, first served basis. To inquire about meeting room space, call the library at 797-8510, Monday through Thursday or Saturday 9-5 and ask to speak to the Assistant Director. We prefer at least one week's notice. Events should be scheduled to end 1/2 hour before library closing time. Those attending events in the meeting room should park behind the library off Walnut Street in the library lot or the city lot behind it and enter through the Walnut Street doors.

Yearbooks

Did you know that the library can use your old local yearbooks? The Mary H. Weir Public Library maintains a collection of yearbooks in our Local history and Genealogy Collection. However, we have quite a few holes in the collection. We only have about 10 of Madonna's yearbooks dating from 1980 to 1993. We have a fairly large collection of Weir High yearbooks beginning in 1921 and going up to 2003, but very few from period from 1970 to 1990. We also have a few copies of local grade school and college yearbooks and would welcome more of those. We would also welcome duplicate copies of years we already do have. So if you are cleaning house and decide that you no longer want your old yearbooks, please bring them to the library!

A New Year, A New Way to Communicate

In 2008, the Mary H. Weir Public Library celebrated its 50th Anniversary. Over the past 50 years there have been many changes in the services provided by our library and the formats used to share information. DVDs have replaced VHS and 16 mm film on movie night. WiFi is available in the library. We can create digital files and e-mail pages from our microfilm collection. So we felt that the beginning of 2009 was an appropriate time to begin to share information about the library through a blog. I hope you find it useful.
