For this week’s guest speaker, the club was lucky enough to have Bob Sweaney, Director of the Johnson City Public Library.  Mr. Sweaney talked about the libraries of the 21st century, and how is it no longer simply books upon shelves.  Today’s library contains programs for financial literacy, foreign language programs, ancestry tracing, and even free music downloads for your iPod.  The library is so massive, in fact, that last year along they had more than 459,000 items checked out.

The meeting was officially adjourned at 1:02.

The next regular meeting will be December 21st.

There will be a Board Meeting next Thursday (December 14th) STSP.
