FY2017 Annual Report

2017 Annual Report


Caroline County Public Library had another busy and successful year in FY2017. My tireless and
multi-talented staff provided a great variety of materials, programs, and services to our

Our Board of Library Trustees, who volunteer many hours throughout the year, provided
expertise and oversight. A special thank you goes to Library Board member Gale Nashold, who
completed his second term in June. We welcome new Library Board member Tomas Davila,
who joined the board in July.

Volunteers continue to be essential to our work at the library: 123 volunteers gave 1,821 hours
of their time to the library this year. 63 teen volunteers earned 871 hours towards their school
service-learning requirement.

By June 30, 2017 we had two retirements and one manager leave to take a position in a
neighboring library system. We anticipate two part-time staff will leave early FY2018. While
we were able to hire two new part-time staff in June, rebuilding our team will be a high priority
in FY2018.

Our partners are key to helping us accomplish our goals. I would like to extend sincere thanks
to our major partners.

We also appreciate the ongoing support from our state legislators of Districts 36 and 37B. A
special thanks to Governor Hogan for his continued support of all Maryland public libraries.
Hats off to our Caroline County Sheriff’s Department and the Greensboro, Denton, and
Federalsburg Police Departments for their commitment to safe communities.

We are looking forward an exciting FY2018!

Debby Bennett, Executive Director
