The first part of January structural damage to the original Carnegie library structure was discovered. Undoubtedly, you have noticed lots of activity around the library as Roger Peterson and his construction crew repairs the support walls and floor joists due to old termite damage. It is expected that all programs will continue as planned and by the middle of February everything should be back to normal. On behalf of the library staff, the library board and the support organizations we extend our thanks to County Commissioners: Richard Ladwig, Arlene Zerbst-Rapp and Greg Starck for taking immediate action and assuring that safe library use will be available now and in the future.

“The Hour I First Believed” by Wally Lamb is on the new book shelf. Caelum Quick was a teacher and his wife, Maureen, a school nurse at Columbine High School in April 1999.

Maureen survives and they return to the Quick family farm at Three Rivers to recover from the trauma, but the effects of chaos are not easily put right and further tragedy ensues.
