The Friends of the Library welcome you to the monthly meeting on March 15 at 10:30 a.m. in the library classroom. The main topic for discussion will be the upcoming April book sale.
The lobby display for March features photographer Jim Backus from Eau Claire. Take a look to your right as you enter the library to see the variety of artistic styles people bring to our displays.
The library will be sponsoring a book discussion of the book “The Story of Edgar Sawtelle” at 6:30 p.m. April 12 in the library classroom. It is a lengthy book, so start reading!
The Friends of the Library are busy planning the big annual book sale slated for April 23-24.
