This will be a fabulous and long awaited event!

It will be wonderful to have Katy Obringer back to read aloud the first story.

Our family has used the library for nearly 50 years, and we will now be able to enjoy the newly remodeled library with our daughter.

Thank you to everyone involved in making the remodel possible, and helping to order and organize the books, and the multitude of other details involved in making this project a miracle come true.
