Every year the Library Foundation Board chooses projects for the comimg year.   

The chosen project is a bit more ambitious than most year's projects.

We plan to install a Music Park near the library to ring in 2018 Summer Reading's musical theme " Libraries Rock!"

Plan to join us at our Pancake Supper Fundraiser October 19th!
