Pardon our Dust!

Baldwin Boettcher has put their adult non-fiction into one collection.  This has worked out so well that we are on the move again.  This time we are putting some of the pulled out fiction collection, such as romance, science fiction, and classics, into our regular fiction collection.  They will still be stickered with the collection of romance, classics and science fiction but you will find all the MacComber books in one spot.  Your search will all be in fiction instead of Romance and fiction books.  Give us a little time or come in and see the effort that goes into moving all these books.  We hope this will make coming to the library a more pleasant experience.  Come in and enjoy one of our many programs and check us out.
