Renovations Update

Our library renovations are very nearly complete, and the upstairs children's room and adult reading lounges are now open for use. These exciting changes are thanks to those of you who told us how important your library is by donating generously to our capital campaign. Those donations were the seed money that allowed us to apply for grant funds from the State.

The new Children's Room is finished! Come visit and enjoy the Lego table, doll house, play kitchen, craft area, toys, and most
importantly - BOOKS! 

Our new Adult Reading Lounge is done as well, and you are welcome to come enjoy the beautiful lake view while you read, relax, use our wireless Internet connection, or just sit and spend time with friends.
