At their December meeting, The Friends of the Library donated $2000 to the library’s building fund, and $2000 to the library for the purchase of an Internet wireless access point for the meeting room, books and library supplies. The Friends were able to raise these funds through proceeds from our monthly used book sales (held the second Saturday of each month), and from our October 3rd chili feed, featuring author William Kent Krueger. We wish to thank all who helped make these donations possible and for your continued support. See a photo here.
New Saturday Hours
Beginning on Saturday, May 7th, the library will be open longer hours on Saturday -- until 3 pm! Since we have expanded our Saturday library hours to 3 pm every Saturday, we are in need of a volunteer for our circulation desk to assist patrons with checking books out and shelving items. If your are interested, please contact Patti at 715-866-7697.
