What's new at the library this week? Well, just about everything. Over the past few months significant changes and improvements have been made to every section of the library. First of all, the entire collection was “weeded.” That means library staff went through every section of the library - book by book, item by item - with printouts that showed the date each piece was added to the collection, the last date it circulated and the number of times it circulated. Doing that allowed us to withdraw items that were obsolete, no longer circulating or too ragged to be appealing anymore.

There are two new displays in the Clark County Public Library foyer this month. Stop by and take a look at them next time you drop by. On the right side of the foyer is a display of comics from days when comics were actually comic, funny, instead of sagas about sociopaths from both sides of the law filled with existential dread. There are examples of forgotten comic strips like Old Doc Yak, The Stone Age Family, Sherlocko the Monk, Polly and Her Pals, and Barney Google. Think of that, the most powerful search engine in the world is named after a scruffy old country guy. Isn't it?
