Help Support the Library!

Everyone shops at one time or another throughout the year, and even more so at this time of year with Thanksgiving, and the December holidays approaching.  Our wonderful Friends group has made it possible for you to shop and help the library at the same time - a win/win situation!  It is so easy to do  and costs nothing except the time to set it up.  There are 2 programs, Amazon and Kroger that will give a portion/percentage of each purchase back to the Library.  The funds collected and raised by our Friends group goes directly to programming and special events that are held at the library througout the year.  Please take a minute to register for one or both of these programsOn behalf of the entire staff and Friends group, we thank you and greatly appreciate your support!
