The Meade County Chamber has the privilege of having Margaret Benham, Library Director and Ashley Childs, Assistant Library Director serving as Chamber Ambassadors. “They are a great help and support and no job is too small or too big when offering a helping hand. The County has a great resource with the library and the extra programs they provide. They are on top of the pulse of our chamber and the community and I really appreciate their membership!” Director Logsdon stated.
The Library has seven full time and 23 part-time staff. They offer volunteer opportunities. Conference rooms may be utilized for meetings or programs encouraging groups to meet in the library for educational, cultural, and civic purposes.
The Meade County Public Library has been serving the informational, educational and recreational reading needs of the citizens of Meade since its beginnings in 1955. In September 2011, construction was completed on their new facility at 996 Old Ekron Road in Brandenburg. The building is spacious, contains a History room for genealogy research, 24 computers for public use, many different genres plus eBooks to check out, and free Wifi.
They gladly assist job seekers with navigating on-line job announcements and preparing resumes. Meade County Public Library has a very active children’s program and offer many fitness programs: Zumba©, Pilates, Gentle Yoga, and Naam Yoga. Other classes include computer skills, card making, chess, wreaths, cake decorating, book discussions, creative writing, and much more.
Their level of support to this Chamber is a great asset to the Chamber and the community, and it is important for us to say thank you and recognize their commitment to our success. Congratulations on being the September Member of the Month!
