The annual Friends of the Library Book Sale last week was a huge success. The Friends raised about $9,000, their highest amount so far. All proceeds from the sale go toward purchasing new books and other items for the library. We would like to thank all the Friends volunteers who donated so much of their time to make this sale a success. Also, thank you to the many community members who donated items for the sale.
The Friends of the Library holds it annual meeting and potluck lunch at 10:30 a.m. May 20 in the library classroom. All members and those interested in becoming members are welcome. The annual meeting is an excellent time for new members to get involved, so we hope to see you there.
The library will be closed May 25-27 for the Memorial Day holiday. The library will resume regular hours at 9 a.m. May 28.
