Librarian's Report: Discussion of Zinio online magazine service. The Spirit Lake Library is offering this service, but it is quite expensive. The county librarians discussed sharing the cost, but the cost is expected to skyrocket for the coming year. One suggestion was to ask Spencer and Estherville libraries to participate. It was finally decided to continue to explore the process and if more libraries could participate, see then if Arnolds Park would be interested in joining. Anyone having a Spirit Lake library card can download magazines from the Spirit Lake Library Home page by choosing the Zinio option.
Spirit Lake is looking to get another author to speak. Arnolds Park will help with the cost.
The next meeting is Wednesday, April 9th.
