The library staff wishes to extend its sincere thanks to all who participated in the Christmas Tree Extravaganza. The trees were decorated beautifully. Through your generous donations, almost $1,000 was raised for the Wimer family.

A special thank you also goes out to all who donated scarves, hats, gloves and other items for the “Mitten Tree”. All items will be donated to a local clothes closet.

Call now to reserve your copy of next month’s book club selections. The Monday night group will read “The Glass Castle” by Jeanette Walls and will meet for discussion on January 12 at 7:00 p.m. The Tuesday afternoon group will meet on January 13 at 1:00 p.m. to discuss “The Innocent Man” by John Grisham.
