Art at the Library Update
Cecelia Quigley, Director of the Children’s Country Place School, brought in the students art work. We set the canvases out all over the library. When the parents came in with their children, they had to hunt for their own canvas. That way they got to see all of the library. It was a fun activity – we had 7 families visit and then Cecelia brought the whole class in on March 31st. The art work (based on Van Gogh’s Starry Night) will be here for a few more weeks. Stop in if you can; it’s definitely worth a peek!

Save the date
Our Seventh annual Memorial Day Used Book Sale is scheduled for May 26 – June 17th. Used books are filling up the library. Put the dates on your calendar!

Christine Rohrman, Library Director
