The Library is participating again in this year’s Give Local MOV. We have matching funds of up to $1,800.
We are raising funds to jazz up the entrance to the Young Reader’s Room. We are looking to add a mural background and a carved wood tree for the small children’s door on the side (kid’s will walk through the tree trunk). Please see the picture below. We will be posting an artist mock up soon. We have already raised $3,000 towards the project, and we are looking to raise at least $2,000 more to finish the project. Please take the time to help us on May 1st by donating.
