The Friends of the Library held its annual meeting May 17. They gave the library a check for $12,000 for library materials. The Volunteer of the Year award was given to Becky Erlenbach. She was chair of the book sale, has been the secretary to the Friends board, and she has been especially good at writing wonderful thank you notes. So now we wish to thank her!
The library has some very old books that were part of several personal library collections given to the library many years ago. We will be selectively selling some of them soon. If you would like a list of titles, please contact me. If interested, we can make arrangements to show them to you.
