Full House

If you haven’t been into the new library location, please take a moment and stop by.  For those who have, THANK YOU!  Early patron totals for the month of November show that we Doubled the number of patrons over this time last year.   What a wonderful showing that all the hard work that went into this move was truly wanted and needed.  What I found interesting in one of my numerous trips in was that some of our neighbors in Nixa have been stopping in here in Clever to check out books and use the computer.  How wonderful is that?!  Especially since our wonderful circulation desk was a gift from the Nixa School District.  We love that not only is the library benefiting the Clever community but has been branching out to our neighbors as well.   Thank you again for your patronage and we hope to make more new friends this month.
