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.

YARD, BOOK, BAKE SALE W/ CHICKEN BBQ WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!

After weeks of hard work, our June 3 sale was a big success. The weather was beautiful (after all the rain we have been experiencing) and the crowds filled the library inside and out. People look forward to this sale every year and we had customers from Pulaski, E. Syracuse, Cleveland, Constantia, Camden, Oneida, Altmar etc. Our bake sale sold out completely and showed the largest profit ever.

BOOK/BAKE/YARD SALE WITH CHICKEN BBQ

Our library board has chosen the date for our Annual Book/Bake/Yard Sale with Chicken BBQ ... SATURDAY, JUNE 3 FROM 9-1. We welcome any donations of furniture (no clothing) or yard sale goodies and Baked Goods which the women of Williamstown are known for. We already have orders for Cherie Tietjen's homemade doughnuts. Please mark your calendars.
