car.jpgThank you to one and all who helped to make our third car show such a success!  We could not have done it without you!  We had over 300 individuals pass through the library.  Many, many expressed admiration for our library and appreciated the opportunity to see the facility! The library is an awesome asset in our community and it was nice to have that re-enforced by our visitors.  And yes, we even had the opportunity to make out a new library card for a local patron.  If you don't have a library card and would like one, please stop in and we will be glad to assist you....and they are free!!!
