Nearly 30 years of library leadership. Past library directors Deanna King,left, Susie Nathan, third from left, and Sarah Milligan, right, welcome new Stillwater County Library Director Jennifer Reed (second from left) during a reception in February. Not pictured is former director Della Haverland. 

The library will begin a strategic planning exercise, and we are hoping to have community meetings in six Stillwater County communities to discuss library programs and what additional services the library can add to meet needs throughout the county.

We look forward to increasing services, accessibility, and to developing new partnerships.

The meetings will begin in March and conclude in April. Details will be announced as the meetings are set.


March 13, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Scrabble Night

March 17, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Shamrock Craft

March 27, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Pull String Art

Please contact the library in person, by calling 322-5009, or emailing slibrary@ to RSVP for the Canvas Paint Night, Scrabble Night, and Pull String Art as space is limited.

There is still time to add to the “Tales from the Heart” wall. Feel free to drop in, call, or email at slibrary@ to share how Stillwater County has captured your heart.
