Thank you, maintenance team!

A huge THANK YOU to our maintenance team, who--over the summer of 2022--removed all the shelving and furniture from the library in order to replace the carpeting. When all items were out, they also removed the gazebo area and rearranged the shelving to open up the space. Be sure to stop in as it is now an open, inviting, spacious area for learning!
