Most of SDL's wish list has been completed! Sanilac District Library could still use your financial assistance if you would like to contribute to these projects. Thank you for your support!
Kid Computers: SDL would love to provide early learning stations with touch screen technology. The computers are loaded with age specific software. The games and programs are educational and fun! The Pre-K and Elementary (K-6th grade) versions cost $1,800 - $2,200 each.
Completed! The tile in the lobby and restrooms has been replaced. The lobby is a high traffic area and even with rugs, the commercial vinyl tile was worn and unsightly. The restroom floors were just as bad. The top layer had been completly worn off.
Completed! The copy machine was updated. This machine has been purchased to replace the 2006 model which was no longer able to be serviced. While the library is not in the copy business, SDL does make copies for the public as a convenience. Patrons also print from the public access computers to the copier. SDL needs a reliable copier for printing our newsletter, brochures, flyers and business use. All print jobs from the public access computers are sent to the copier. Buying the copier rather than leasing saves over $2,000.
Completed! The Circulation Desk was remodeled the countertop replaced. The good thing is that people are checking out thousands of materials. The bad thing is that all those materials sliding across the Circulation Desk wore the surface right off. After researching material options, the Library Board nixed the idea of using quartz which is way too expensive and used laminate. The Circulation Desk was raised to standing height.
