Children's Room Update

Thank you to everyone in our community for your patience and understanding while our Preschool and Media Areas have been closed. Our contractor is working on repairs to the walls and ceiling in the Preschool Area. We hope that this work is completed soon and that the new carpet is installed by the middle of April. We are also making progress on ordering copies of the Picture Books and Beginning Readers that were destroyed. While our spaces will be re-opened soon, the process of ordering and re-building the book collection will be ongoing and may take some time. Thank you for your continued patience.

We'd like to thank everyone who has donated to the Library in the past several weeks. Your generous gifts will help us return our Children's Room to its former glory. Your kindness and caring have reminded us how much our community values the Library and all that we offer to young children and families.
