The library would like to hold monthly story times for children ages 1-5. This will be free and open to the public. Please spread the word! Our first story time will take place on Wed. Feb. 27 at 11am. A volunteer will read several stories and we’ll have an informal discussion about how often parents/grandparents/caregivers would like to meet and what they’d like to see included. Please bring the youngsters in your life and any ideas you may have.
After nearly 25 years under our original roof, with several hail storms, small leaks and a few replaced shingles, it was time for a new roof on the library. We think it looks pretty good. Here’s to at least 25 more years!
