Our expansion is shaping up with shelving being built in the new addition, doors to install, and other basic work before painting the entire library inside, then installing carpet throughout. This will probably entail closing the library for a few days until all items can be boxed up and moved according to the workers' schedule, then placed in their new locations. We ask for your patience throughout this process; the end result will be worth it!
This is being financed by the generous gift received from Nora Anderson, whose bequest has also helped other organizations. To honor her and her generosity, we have placed a bench in front of the library dedicated to her.
