Repairs continue downstairs where there was water damage. Outside, the Doris Demillo Memorial Garden now has a granite bench. There is now a bike rack for everyone’s convenience, to keep bikes off the walkway. The new bookdrop is in place, custom made for the library by Howie’s Welding. The bookdrop has two slots, one large and one small. The large slot is for books, of course, but the small slot is for DVDs and CDs.
The library recently received donations of music CDs, some children’s, teen’s and adult. Also, there are new DVDs. The Download Library is available through the online catalog at https://treat.biblionix.com/atoz/catalog/. Click on “See what’s hot” for a list of all the new items.
