At Monday's city council meeting, Wadena library manager Renee Frethem said that the building's exhaust system is exhausted.

She expressed concern that the skylight could be harmful to materials and PCs, and that if the air conditioner went out for even one weekend, it could be bad.


Frethem and Pete Phillips said that as recessions cause budgets to go down, library use goes up.

"Recessions are very, very good for libraries," Phillips said.
