The First First Monday

First MondayThe Friends of the Library have begun a new activity.  They will gather on the first Monday of each Month from 9:00 – 11:00 while the library is closed to work on various projects.   This month they took down the holiday decorations and then proceeded to make sure that books were in the correct order on the shelves. Projects will vary each month and there are always books to be dusted and arranged.  If you would like to participate, join the Friends on the First Monday in February (2nd) at 9:00.
