New Library Acquisition
The library has recently acquired a new World Book Encyclopedia set. The set is for the year 2019. It is being held in the library reading room and kept in-house only for use within the library and will not check-out in order to keep information available to patrons upon need. We hope you will enjoy the new set and make use of their wealth of information.
The library is pleased to present the new Christmas lights on the library and the garland donated by Mr. and Mrs. Donald McCain.
After completing a recent technology project, the library developed its electrical wiring to enable outlet extensions to assist the library in creating light on the outside of the property. The library hopes to pursue future projects that will illumine external features on the library’s premises.
We hope that our first project of Christmas lights is well received and send to you Season’s Greetings and Happy Holidays!
Legos Are Here!
