Thank you

Just a few days ago, we were worrying about whether or not the community would turn out to support Fort Rucker at the Listening Session. It seems those worries were completely misplaced. By all accounts, the Listening Session seems to have been a big success. I do not know if the local elected leaders and community members could have done a better job fighting to preserve our local post.

Thank you for turning out to support this effort. Now we wait to see if Congress can get its act together.

Help Shape Our Libraries

The Dothan Houston County Library System wants your input about the role of libraries in Dothan and Houston County. We asked you what you wanted the physical space to be and you told us – that led to the beautiful new facilities in Downtown Dothan and Westgate Park. Now we are asking you to help shape our Strategic Plan for the next 5 years by telling us what you want to see, do, experience, read, watch, listen and download as you connect – learn –discover the world by way of your libraries. Beginning February 1st, please complete the survey at to be entered in weekly drawings for prizes ranging from Nook Glowlights to gift cards at local retailers. (Hint – the biggest prizes will be awarded the first week of February, next dollar value down will be awarded the second week of February, etc.) You may also fill out surveys in person at all library locations.

Help us write the next “chapter” in our story.
