A historic, special delivery was made October 1, 2014 to Collierville Middle School from the Collierville Burch Library. A box of requested books was delivered by Blue Sky Courier Service to the school's library; the first delivery of many more. The courier service between the Collierville Burch Library and Collierville Schools gives educators the opportunity to request books for a curriculum or educational research that their particular school library may not have available. With a weekly delivery in place, the exchanging of learning materials is vast, efficient, and dependable.
'Vision is a word often used when residents, developers, elected officials and Town of Collierville planning staff discuss the growth, evolution and character of the Town. In the "Collierville 2040" plan on future land use of the community, the 'vision' was aptly stated as "A built environment in the Town of Collierville that will rank us among the nation's best places in terms of quality, character and functionality." This vision is steadily becoming a reality in Collierville as indicated by the recent Parade magazine and Preserve America national designations.
The Town's new Economic Development Director John Duncan has been quite busy the past several months building the foundation for Collierville's economic development programs. This week the Economic Development Office is launching a brand new web site. The new site is located at collierville.com and is a featured item on the main menu bar for easy access.
The new site welcomes viewers with clean graphics and scrolling images of manufacturing, aerial photos of available sites, healthcare and scenic views of Collierville.
