The American Red Cross was very pleased with the Black Friday Blood Drive and our willingness to share the saving gift of life. We had 18 units collected which will go a long way toward replenishing blood supplies and ultimately saving lives for our community. The executive board of the Friends of the Library will meet Tuesday, December 17th at 6 PM. The Friends have a year-round book sale inside the ‘Library Store,' kept stocked with the best of the donations. You can’t beat these prices for gifts or your own home library! Attention artists! We are looking for a sketch artist to design a new note card for the library featuring the new building. Let us know if you are interested in contributing your talent.
