Daily Local News – February 24, 2014


On February 18th the Bloomington Board of Parks Commissioners accepted the donation of a piece of equipment one official described as the heart of the city’s ice arena; The Monroe County Public Library’s Board of Trustees discussed factors that influence circulation at a meeting last Wednesday. Library Director Sara Laughlin told the board that a new report shows changes in how patrons use the Library; The Indiana University Kelley School of Business announced today that they have awarded a one million dollar United States Department for International Development grant to support the economic transition of the Asian sovereign state Myanmar; The Indiana Senate passed House Bill 1070 last week, written by State Representative Peggy Mayfield, which requires all successors of the Department of Corrections Ombudsman to post monthly reports on conducted investigations.

Five weeks from tomorrow, Bloomington’s only low-barrier homeless shelter is scheduled to close for the season. The closure leaves a seven-month gap when individuals who don’t qualify for other shelters in town have no designated place to stay at night. But a group has been meeting in recent weeks to form a summer shelter that would fill that gap. WFHB Assistant News Director Joe Crawford brings us the story for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.

Karen Franks talks about the mission, programs, and upcoming events for MCPL’s Friends of the Library.
