Before getting into the library news today, I would like to stop and thank every single one of you who have donated materials (books and yard sale items), time (volunteering), and/or money (memorials and other donations) to the library. The Library exists to enrich the community by providing unlimited opportunities for information, education, inspiration, and imagination. With your support, we have been able to do this at a very high level. Thanks!

The Library will be closed Thursday, November 25, through Saturday, November 27, in celebration of the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Preschool Story Time will meet at 10 am on Tuesday, November 30. The topic will be “medieval times.”
