The library will be closed on Thursday, November 22 and November 23, 2007 for the Thanksgiving holiday. Normal hours of operation resume on Sunday the 25th.

This Thanksgiving we would like to extend our thanks and gratitude for all of the many supporters of the library. Volunteers who sit on boards, provide programs and fulfill specific responsibilities improve the efficiency of day-to-day operation and are integral to successful library service. Quite simply, we would not be able to serve our community without volunteers. We are also very grateful for the many donors who give generously to all of our fundraising efforts; from endowment fundraising to Decker’s receipts to material donations for the book sale and library – you are making a difference and are appreciated. Enjoy a bountiful Thanksgiving.
