Here are the 2015 Annual Meeting Agenda-Minutes. You can find the presentation slides and PDFs on our Members Only page. We had some terrific special guest speakers this year and a full agenda with our final closeout for the five year project. Ontime and under budget  FTW!

HS InFocus is grateful for the opportunity to work with such a wonderful group of librarians. The future of Library Connectivity is going to be just as busy and exciting as the past 10 years have been. We have made a real impact – we work smarter when we work together

GovernmentAttic.org filed a FOIA request with Amtrak for a database of Amtrak Train Stations.

In response to the FOIA request, Amtrak provided the database, which is now posted at the GovernmentAttic.org website:

I meant to send these pics out a while ago. The library open house was a success thanks to a lot of help from my cataloger, Chris.

Of course I was so excited to see folks that it took a minute to click in my head that I should be snapping pictures. YIKES!

Chris snapped a bunch of pics too.  I may get around to sending those out but I at least wanted to share these with you guys and thank you for your support.

This year’s theme is “Lives Change @Your Library”.

We use NLW  to reach out to our stakeholders in our transportation agencies and show off our services and value to the organization. This year the pooled fund members organize their own events and have brand new TKN brochures to hand out. They look fantastic and we’re very proud of this 2014 project. Check them out!

On April 9, 1913 Iowa’s General Assembly passed a bill to create a highway commission with it’s own governing body who oversaw local county and township road officials and worked to prepare standardized plans and specifications for all phases of highway and bridge work. Today, the Iowa DOT works with all modes of transportation to connect people across this great state. For more Iowa DOT history visit www.iowadot.gov/history.
