From the Director, Winter 2023

This year has been amazing for the library. From a record-setting year for our Adult Winter Reading Program, to over 1,200 children signing up for our Summer Reading Program: Oceans of Possibilities, to our WCDPL Foundation Series hosting bestselling author and Hollywood actor Danny Trejo, we have had so much success and fun throughout 2022.

We were all inspired by your support of WCDPL Foundation Series author Danny Trejo in October. We had such great responses to this visit; tickets for the event were reserved in under 48 hours with over 600 more people on the waitlist. From the very start of this series in 2017, it was the hope of the WCDPL Foundation to bring these high-caliber authors to our community to provide vibrant and creative experiences. Sign up for our newsletter to be the first to hear about our October 2023 Foundation Series author visit!

Another great success was our Friends of the Library book sale. Our Friends are a great help in supporting the influential work here at the library, and this book sale raised over $4,500.00 to continue to support the Friends in all they do.

Of course, we always enjoy the holiday season and the community events that come with it. We once again hosted the annual tree lighting and holiday concert, and marched in the Bowling Green Holiday Parade with our Toy Story theme, “Toys & Stories.” Our staff always enjoys this much-loved tradition, and we look forward to bringing our creativity to the Holiday Parade again next year.

As we enter a new year, we hope you will show the same support you have given through the years. If you would like to show your support or appreciation for the library, I encourage you to make a donation to the WCDPL Foundation. As always, we are incredibly grateful for the library love you continuously show us.

See you at the library!
