Meet Rita Dattilo, our March Artist of the Month. Even in childhood, Rita had a passion for art, and she remembers that she often had a crayon in hand, coloring or drawing something. Since retirement, Rita has revisited her love for art – with passion intact. Her interest and talent have led her to take instruction from artists like Mary Pera and Sandee Sander at ArtReach. Rita has profited from a number of workshops, and she particularly enjoyed her experience with New Mexico artist Ann Templeton. Rita often paints in her home studio, but she also enjoys working alongside other local artists at the Bert Ferguson Community Center.
Since 2004, the Collierville Burch Library has been operated and staffed by a service provider, Library Systems and Services LLC (LSSI) of Germantown, Maryland. In an effort to maximize tax dollars invested in the Library and improve the overall customer experience, the Town of Collierville will assume the responsibility of managing the Library effective July 1, 2015.
The Town fully expects this transition to be seamless and patrons of the Library should experience the same level of service they have become accustomed to receiving. The Town intends to retain the fulltime services of the Library’s current Director, Deanna Britton, and all staff will remain in place.
One of the goals of this transition is the expansion of the Library’s resources to include better access to books and materials that directly reflect the needs and requests of this community. The Collierville Library is encouraging patrons to let them know about any book or research materials that they want to see in their Library. Expanding the scope of the Collierville Library’s resources will eliminate dependence on other area libraries for books and materials. To ensure that the Collierville Library will be able to fulfill special requests for books, a state-wide interlibrary loan system is also in place.
