Description:

The Scugog library has also prided itself on its ability to keep up with the ever-evolving technological world. "We try to focus on what people want, that's why we have such good numbers," says Mr. Bonnano, noting, as an example, that Scugog has a collection of more than 1,200 DVDs while other mid-range libraries may offer a couple dozen. Mr. Bonnano and his staff also use new technology to the best of their ability to cut costs and improve services - a key cog in raising the Scugog library's cost-efficiencies. "The technology's good for us; it makes our customers happy because it's what they want and it's good for us as a business. It's helped us tremendously," he says. When it comes to additional funding, and space, however, Mr. Bonnano and his staff will have to wait. Library officials are expected to present Township officials with a business plan in September, which they hope will spur the municipality to provide them with increased funding as well as the green-light for a long-awaited expansion of about 6,000 square-feet, essentially doubling the size of the existing library. Patrick Melligan, chairman of the library board, says his group is "pleased with the results" of Mr. Bonnano's study, but add the figures only underline the library's need for increased funding and space. "The limitations of the building and budget hinder our ability to improve services even further," he says. "We could be revolutionizing library services to an even greater degree if we had the funds and space to meet the requests of residents." Ward 1 Councillor Larry Corrigan, who represents council at the library board, says he would be receptive to a request for more funding. "The management and the service provided by library staff are excellent; it's an excellent library and the residents are getting a good bang for their dollar. They're getting good value," says Coun.
