Library

This year the Friends of the Library will again have a "mini garage sale" along with the traditional spring used book sale; members of the Friends of the Library will place some extra tables outside the library, and will be selling typical garage sale items such as household items, accessories, etc. We had a good turnout last year, so we are hopeful we can again raise some much needed funds for the library.
