Director’s notes

Ralph Illick

January 20, 2014

We’ve had a very busy year here at the library, and it has been a pleasure for all of us at MCPL to serve the community. As we move into 2014, I want to wish everyone a happy and safe winter season with friends and family. I would like to personally thank all of those who work here, as well as the countless volunteers, members of the Friends of the Marathon County Public Library, and the MCPL Foundation for their tireless efforts to make this library such a wonderful asset to Marathon County.

This fall we asked you to help us to better serve you by answering a survey about the services we provide. Those responses have given us great input for furthering our mission to connect people with information, ideas, and one another. In the coming months I want to encourage all of our library patrons to talk with the staff members who serve you about what you hope to see from your library in the future. We have the opportunity to make improvements to each facility, and we are committed to making this library one that we can all cherish and enjoy for years to come. Please stop by one of our branches or the main library in Wausau soon to let us know what’s on your mind. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
