The Palatine Public Library District Foundation (PPLDF)
will be holding the “Foundation for Murder…..Poltergeist Heist” murder mystery dinner on Monday, June 11th from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM at Gianni’s Café at 18 West Station Street in downtown Palatine to support the fundraising efforts of the PPLDF.

Tickets are $100.00 and seating is limited.  Tickets
and information are available by phone at 847-217-1845 or online at www.ppldf.org.  The mission of the foundation is to provide funding for a number of projects that would not be possible for the library to fully fund including computers in the children’s area of the main library, shelving and furnishings for the Freeman Road Branch renovation, the library’s bookmobile and furniture at the main library.  Specifically, funds raised through the
“Foundation for Murder” dinner will directly support technological improvements in the public meeting rooms, providing a welcoming area for library programming.

Was the PPLDF getting a lot of requests from Palatine residents for "technological improvements in the public meeting rooms ? "to provide a welcoming area for Library programming"? Its hard for me to picture Palatine residents asking our library for technologal improvements to public meeting rooms. How about a 24 hour drop box? Many Moms with small children would appreciate not having to leave the car to drop off library materail. The current drop box is only open during library hours. Just wondering who asked for "technological improvements to public meeting rooms" since the library serves the community.

In response to requests from the community to provide modern and functional audiovisual equipment in the public meeting rooms, the Palatine Library has recently replaced the audiovisual equipment which had not been updated since the building was constructed in 1993. The Palatine Public Library District Foundation provided $10,000 to help fund this renewal, citing the advantages in providing a functional space for the community, local businesses and organizations, individuals, the Library, and its affiliates to host professional programs and events. To the point of the 24 hour drive-up drop box: In preparing for the 2009 second floor renovation of Main Library, the Library and its architectural consultants explored our property for potential sites for a 24 hour driver-side drop-off. Due to the orientation of the building, however, there were simply no serviceable options. Identifying the underground garage as the only viable site, the Library added the drive-up drops in the garage at that time as a convenience during our open hours. The walk-up drops adjacent to the loading zone at the front of the building remain open 24 hours.

You should post a large sign in the lobby of the Paltine Library that $10,000 in AV equipment for the public meeting rooms,that you say the community requested, has been purchased. If Palatine Library Patrons have been asking for $10,000 in AV equipment FOR PUBLIC MEETING ROOMS you should let them know the Library has purchased it. If the community has been requesting this, then tell the community we now have it. It would seem to me that only a small percentage of library card holders use the public meeting rooms, and it would more likely be used by the library management but I guess I am mistaken.
