Interlibrary Loan Changes coming

We will soon be connected to other SD libraries via South Dakota Share-It, beginning July 1st, 2016. This will allow patrons to search library catalogs and request interlibrary loans from anywhere!

To facilitate this transition, it will be necessary for the library to temporarily suspend its current interlibrary loan process beginning June 1st. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Long-Term Care Options for Vermillion

**Update**

Unfortunately, tonight’s discussion on Long-term care options has been postponed until a later date.  We will share this new date and time in the media when it is determined.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is proud to host a community discussion on Vermillion’s need for long-term care facilities. On hand to discuss the topic will be physical therapist Ruth Scott, Bill Anderson, and a representative from Sanford Vermillion; the discussion will be facilitated by Michelle Maloney.

longterm care

For those living in rural areas, a lack of long-term care facilities can present hardship and difficult choices. People in need of long-term care services and their families must decide if someone is able to provide care in their home or relocate the person to a facility outside of their community. Relocation to another community can be difficult for cultural reasons, as well as making it difficult for family members to visit frequently. The relocation of residents for long-term care also has an adverse economic effect on the community. As a community with limited long-term care options, this community discussion will aim to bring some potential solutions to light.
