Here's another minisode where we go over some recent history of the Ferndale Library. From early 2007 through the late summer of 2010, this library began renovations, which meant that the entire collection was moved a quarter mile down the street into a temporary location described herein as a "factory-like gymnasium." We talk about how this was never seen as any kind of setback to the staff, as the drive and imagination for new programming only accelerated during this time. It's also important to note the exchange of support from the community, and the gratitude of staff for its patrons - as the library's renovation was approved by voters at a precarious time (the 2008 recession was looming). We talk about the patience of the community, and the fortitude of the staff, in this minisode on Ferndale Library history.
