National Library Week-
To celebrate National Library Week, the Library is asking members of the
community to express whey they love their Library. Focusing on the
this year's theme of "Libraries Change Lives", we will have posters
available for patrons to fill out explaining how a library has changed
their life or why they appreciate their library. The form will
also serve as an entry for a drawing for a Kindle Fire!.
The Children's Library will also display testimonials from children and
will have a drawing for a Kindle Fire for one lucky child who
turns in a form. Entries will be taken through April 19th and
the drawings will be held April 21st.
