Thanks to all of you who use the library. You give us a reason to open the doors each day. We appreciate your patronage.

So that our staff may enjoy the holiday, the library will close at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, and will also be closed on Friday. All materials due on the days we are closed will be extended until Monday, November 29.

You can either complain that rose bushes have thorns - or rejoice that thorn bushes have roses.

The best way to forget your own problems is to help someone else solve theirs.
