April Events:
Booksale -  Thank You!
We had an outstanding sale thanks to the quality donations, the dedication of the volunteers, and the great turnout of buyers: thank you one and all. All the money raised goes to the Friends of the Library who pay for all the 'extras' we offer: author talks, presentations, summer reading events, museum passes, 3D printer & more.
