Autumn issue cover.

The library's free, 12-page autumn edition of THINK... newsletter arrived in September. This issue cover featured "Peacock," a vibrant painting by Miranda Walters, one of the library's 2015 Fall Teen Art Show winners. The quarterly newsletter covers over 800 scheduled events from September through November. A printed edition of 2,750 copies is delivered not only to all twelve library branch locations but also to select non-library businesses to extend its reach further into the community. Online copies are also available on the library's website at, http://aclib.us/news.  

Development of the newsletter begins with library staff entering their planned quarterly events into the library's electronic calendar system during a 30-day period prior to beginning the editorial production process, which in turn takes an additional 30 days of feature writing, design, and printing production prior to delivery of the publication to the public. Printing services are outsourced to a local printer, taking five to seven days before receipt of the printed product back to the design department for separating and shipping different quantities to the 12 district libraries and local businesses.
