Pioneering Website Retools for Today
3/27/2005 — We began this website in 1996, before many people had heard of the World Wide Web. We called it "Dansville Community Home Page" and it has become Dansville's showcase to the world. Since then, of course, the Internet has transformed the way we live and get information. Several other web sites have sprung up to serve Dansville, including Village of Dansville offices, Danville Area Chamber of Commerce, the public school, and many others.
The Library Board of Trustees chose in 2004 to rename our website to simply "Dansville Public Library" to reflect its primary role as a library information resource.
Also, a new web address was obtained: www.dansvillelibrary.org, which is simpler and easier to remember than the original dansville.lib.ny.us.
As Dansville Public Library seeks to further serve the information needs of our community, we will continue to revise and remodel this website. Glitches or lost pages may occur, and we appreciate your patience during our renovations.
We look forward to your comments and suggestions!
