COLUMBIA CITY â€” Mary Hartman, director of The Peabody Public Library, updated Whitley County Commissioners on the programming at the Columbia City facility.
â€śWe have some exciting things going on at the library,â€ť Hartman said. â€śI wanted to bring you up to date.â€ť
According to the libraryâ€™s annual report, more than $155,000 people visited the library in the last year.
â€śWe also had 11,791 people use our meeting rooms,â€ť Hartman said. â€śThere are some that believe the library doesnâ€™t have a use or that people donâ€™t come to the library. However, in Whitley County that certainly is not the case.â€ť
