Coffeen Library Checks Out

With deep regret, the board members of the Community Library of Coffeen have decided to close its doors. Usage of the library facility has progressively declined over the past few years. Therefore the library will be having a book giveaway event on February 4th thru 6th. There will be no charge for the books; however, donations will be accepted. The Community Library Board plans to establish a college scholarship available for area students to promote literacy and education. The scholarship will be in memory of all the volunteers who have spent countless hours establishing and maintaining the library over the past years. Doors will be open February 4th from 2 P.M. to 5 P.M., February 5th from 9 P.M. to 3 P.M., and February 6th, 12 P.M to 3 P.M. 

The library hasn't just been a place to read but an important venue in the digital era. The library has provided free high-speed internet usage, online applications, and research; free GED and general tutoring; free programs for children; over 17000 books; paperback and magazine trade; convenient book drop; photocopy and fax services; and a meeting place for the communities. 

The Hillsboro Area Public Library District is offering refuge for residents who need library services.  They released a statement.
