This Month at The Urbana Free Library Goes Digital. No More Paper!

Over the past year, it has become apparent that the library’s monthly, paper newsletter has become less popular and our website newsletter has become more popular.  As such, we’ve decided to go paperless!  Here’s more information about the switch and how you can continue to stay informed about library programs, events, services, and resources: 

  • Beginning in January 2014, the Web version of the library newsletter will be posted on the website on the 25th of each month.  
  • The popular paper calendar of children’s programs will still be printed monthly and will also be available online. 
  • Still to be determined—we’re in discussion with the Friends and the Foundation about a quarterly newsletter that will outline news and events specific to their activities and fund-raising initiatives.
