The Library Board of Trustees and Library Director have been busy behind the scenes working on two grants for improvements to the Library. We are hoping to update old and bowing shelving with new rolling bookshelves, and we are hoping to replace a seriously outdated propane heater, among many other projects to improve your Library. Wish us luck!
Newsflash! We have been awarded one of our grants (so far) for replacing the bowing shelves, as well as another $50,000 grant from a very generous donor that will be used to improve the library building and operations. We will keep you updated with our progress.
We have a group that meets at the every other Wednesday at 6:00PM.

We’ll welcome you!
