Construction Progress…


Empty Library

Wall removed between library and fire hall

The Library has been temporarily moved to the City Hall side of the building until construction is completed.  Books, movies and computers are available and operating hours remain the same.  Construction for the library expansion project to date has included plumbing installed for the new restroom and drinking fountain.  In the original library space, the east wall has been removed as well as the ceiling, lighting, carpet and circulation desk.  The two spaces are now one expanded space.  The new east wall is framed and the electrician has installed new electrical outlets.

Moving Out…


Making Cookies…

Only a few days left in the library before moving out for construction so we made cookies!  What great fun making and eating Christmas cookies!256254

Friends of the Library Annual Christmas Bake Sale

Our annual Friends of the Library Bake Sale was held in our library location because many of our shelves had been moved out, making way for baked items and buyers.  Proceeds from the bake sale were $1000+ and the Friends also raffled two donated Lego kits.251243242
