The renovation project is moving forward!  The first step was the landscaping / drainage work accomplished this last fall.  The second stop was accomplished last weekend — moving all of the sale books downstairs into one room onto nice blue shelves.  Drop by to see the new sale room and maybe buy a book or two!  If you are interested in purchasing a refrigerator / freezer, rear-projection TV, or a stove / oven, contact the library — we will be selling these at quite reasonable prices, with all proceeds going to the renovation project.

Finished
