LIRARY NEWS              
The Summer Reading Program for 2018 has ended with positive feedback from staff and patrons. We'd like to thank Katy Hanousek and all the library staff for their hard work in planning and carrying out the program this year. We used Google Forms this year to track reading data and were pleased with the cost savings and ease of use. The Friends of the Library, volunteers and community members also helped to contribute to the success of this program by volunteering their time or making donations.
