Publicity

It occurred to both Erika and myself today, that we need more publicity at the Walthill Public Library. Yes, we love kids, but offer services to all reading levels. We have a good amount of books, and plan on purchasing even more. We have Overdrive for those who like to read e-books, and it is free of charge. We have the daily newspaper, and the coffee pot is almost always on. Stop in and see for yourself!!!!
