Thank you!

Thank you to the Friends of the Library for the donation of a large wall clock for the library, sponsoring the two Quiz Bowls, the Local History Quiz Bowl. and for contributing funds for part of the LSTA Edge Special Projects grant which will allow the library to have two self-service check out machines when completed. The Friends of the Library also paid for new conference room chairs, the laminator, the performers for the Summer Reading Program, refreshments and chess games. Without their donations of time and funds, there would be fewer programs and pieces of equipment to provide to the residents in the community.
