We ended 2019 on a positive note, with all the Winter and Christmas Holidays now behind us and all the community outreach programs finishing with a bang. We now look forward to 2020 with a celebration to welcome our new Library Director Diana Harvey. 

The Library Board will be hosting a reception for her on Thursday, Jan. 9, staring at 5:30 p.m. Please stop by and enjoy some punch and light refreshments while mingling with other patrons and members of our Library Board.
