Hussar Municipal Library is seeking input. With the upcoming school closure, Hussar Library will soon find Photo ID is re- itself without a home in the school building. The board is considering options for the future of the library. Options include: closing the library altogether, operating the library without a physical space, and operating the library out of a smaller, existing community space (likely a spare room in the curling club). The board is depending upon community members providing their input for direction in this change. By now, hopefully everyone has received a flyer in the mail outlining the options for the library in detail. Please take the time to make your thoughts known. If you did not receive the flyer, or require additional information, please contact Kathy Dundas (403-787-3929), Kristen Anderson (403-787-3932), Tim Frank (403-787-3751), or Jennifer Pratt (403-787-3000).
