The Door County Library continuously offers events to its patrons, and the biggest resource when finding those events to present to the public is often the patrons themselves. Morgan Mann, the Community Relations Library Assistant at the library, said the library has people from all walks of life come by and use the facilities. As people come and go, those who work at the library often hear and learn things about visitors, and those bits of information often form ideas that could be presented as programs later on. Mann said the community atmosphere of the library helps assist in getting to know visitors for this purpose.
Two February events Mann pointed out that came from “just knowing” things about their visitors include a model railroading talk given by Steve Hellmann on February 12th and a visitor discussing his trip to Antarctica on February 22nd.
