Happy New Year

Welcome to 2018.  You made it!  We are thankful to you, our patrons, for welcoming our new director, Korleen Bledsoe, and the well-wishes to now retired Cheryl Steinborn.  We also want to wish long time assistant Kathy Arnold a happy, happy retirement as she moves on effective January 1.  Thanks to both of these ladies for their tremendous service.  Turning the page on a new year also welcomes Jill Harris to take on the responsibilities of Kathy Arnold as well as continuation of her custodial duties.  We are so happy to welcome Jill to her additional role.

This new year also brought the departure of Judy Dunlap after many years of tremendous service on the Library Board of Directors.  Judy is a selfless giver with a passion for our community.  She will remain active at the Food Pantry and around town, but we will greatly  miss her.  In her place, we welcome Marcy Shepard to the Board and look forward to great contributions from her.

We encourage you to come in to the library to grab a book, download an e-book, or check out a DVD to take home to stay WARM in these arctic temps.  Remember, if the schools close due to weather, so does the library.  Otherwise, normal hours.

Come see us!
