The Effingham Public Library has nominated and elected its officers for Fiscal Year 2017. Rather than have a President and Vice President, the Library Board has two Co-Chairs. Dannielle Harden and Matt Greider were named Co-Chairs at the Board’s meeting earlier this week. The Board also appointed Jim Arndt as Treasurer and Charlene Topel as Secretary.
In other library news, the name change from Helen Matthes Public Library to the Effingham Public Library has officially been ratified. The Library has been operating under the new name since moving into their new location, but the name change needed to be made official by the City for banking reasons.
