Town celebrates changes at library

In early March, Collierville announced plans to manage the Collierville Burch Library beginning on July 1. Previously run by Library Systems and Services LLC, the town is now charged with maximizing tax dollars invested in the library and improving the overall patron experience.

“The Town of Collierville has had great success insourcing numerous, large services in the past including Collierville Schools and curbside recycling,” said Josh Suddath, assistant town administrator. “We expect the same successful transition with the Library.”

To celebrate the changes, the Overdrive Digital Bookmobile will be parked outside the Library on July 21 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The 74-foot, 18-wheel tractor-trailer is equipped with Internet connected PCs, high definition monitors and premium sound systems to help showcase the Collierville Library’s digital eBook collection. Hands-on learning stations will give visitors an opportunity to search the digital collection, use supported mobile devices, and experience eBooks, audiobooks and more from the library’s digital collection.

There will also be performances at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. from the Wood and Strings Theatre. Based on Appalachian folk tales, these stories are brought to life by the puppetry company out of Centerville, Tenn.
