Swine Flu


You might have heard recently in the news about the outbreak of swine flu in Mexico and the risk of it spreading. Avoid some of the 24-hour news channel hype and make sure you read the very informative web page from the Center for Disease Control: "Swine Flu and You".

Here's a map, showing the location of the suspected and confirmed cases.

From the CDC:

What should I do to keep from getting the flu?
First and most important: wash your hands. Try to stay in good general health. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food. Try not touch surfaces that may be contaminated with the flu virus. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

New Plan for Capital Improvement Budget


Since the beginning of our library district in 1992, we have always "set aside" 1/7 of our tax revenues for capital improvement projects that might be needed at our various locations.

Over the years, we have had to make changes to the amount directed to individual library branches versus the funds retained for district use (such as implementing a district-wide library circulation system).

Free Resume Printing


As a public service to job seekers, the Branch District Library announces that it will be offering free printing of resumes, cover letters, and job applications, effective Monday March 23, 2009. Up to 10 black and white copies of each of these materials may be printed at any of our six locations: Algansee, Bronson, Coldwater, Quincy, Sherwood, and Union Twp. (Directions and hours.)

Good luck in your job search!
