IMPROVEMENTS TO PICTURE BOOK ROOM

With the help of an Amish carpenter, we have completely removed the shelving on one side of the room, doing away with unused space at top and bottom and rebuilding the shelves to accommodate the picture books without having to lay the taller ones on their side. This means we had to repaint the shelving the primary colors but it will be so much easier to shelve books. We tore up the old carpet and are putting down Allure with a wood grain look. Our Eric Carle oval rug will look nice when the flooring is complete.

ANNUAL CHRISTMAS TEA

Jim McCarthy and Family again helped us celebrate our ANNUAL CHRISTMAS TEA with their Christmas music. We had a full parking lot for the two hours and lots of delicious finger foods. The HUGE Christmas stocking was won by Janet Barnard.

NEW FIREPLACE INSTALLATION

Alas, we have to replace our fireplace unit ($4500) as parts cannot be obtained for the present one. One of our trustees has generously contributed $500 for this expenditure. Installation date is November 17 and we are looking forward to it as the fireplace is the only source of heat in our meeting room.

LIBRARY CONSTRUCTION BEGINS

The construction on our library roof is nearly complete. The sections of the old ugly metal roof were removed and is being replaced with matching black shingles. The old two story section of the original building had absolutely no insulation so this was blown in. JLS of Camden is our contractor and we are hoping our NYS Library Construction Grant goes through. If you could see what this building looked like when we opened in June 2000, you wouldn't believe it!

SUMMER PROGRESS

Do stop in and see our new sidewalk with steps leading to the Memorial Stone in our Memorial Garden. This is now handicap accessible. This stone is engraved with the names of those who have passed on and in most cases were big supporters of our library. It has been the practice in our small community that their relatives have asked donations be given to the library instead of flowers. We have had their names engraved on this stone.
