Update for April 23, 2015
City observing Library Week
By William Hoover
Mayor Jim Danner opened Monday’s Hondo City Council meeting by issuing a proclamation declaring April 13-18 as National Library Week.
With Hondo Public Library in the midst of raising the $600,000 necessary to build a much needed new library and community center, the proclamation noted libraries are a crucial resource for learning and encouraged everyone to support library funding efforts.
“Libraries, including our own City of Hondo Public Library, play a vital role in providing millions of people with the resources they need to live, learn and work in the 21st century,” he said, with library staff in attendance.
“Libraries, librarians, library workers and supporters across America are celebrating National Library Week with the theme Unlimited Possibilities @ Your Library. So, now, therefore I, James W. Danner Sr., Mayor of the City of Hondo, do hereby proclaim April 13-18, 2015 as National Library Week in Hondo.
“I urge all citizens to join in the observance encouraging all residents to take advantage of the Unlimited Possibilities @ Hondo Public Library,” he said. “I also urge them to thank library workers and volunteers for providing valuable services and making information accessible to all who walk through the library’s doors.”
Danner then presented the proclamation to Library Director Dorothy Schorp, who took the opportunity to introduce her staff to council.
Present for the library were Assistant Library Manager Jackie Jimenez, Circulation Manager Tina Leos, Information Technician Gerardo Flores, Part-Time Circulation Clerk Josh Miranda, and Board Vice President Rose Mary Mares.
“Thank you, Mayor,” said Schorp accepting the document. “Any library is only as good as its staff and I am very blessed to have wonderful staff.
“We are very excited and thankful for this,” she added. “We will be celebrating with activities all week. We will have free popcorn and pickles all day Friday. So, if you are interested, please come by.”
