LIBRARY DIRECTOR'S REPORT

Library News              
There were 114 Silent Auction items this year resulting in a very successful fundraiser for the Friends. The Friends will also be having a cookie sale on December 14th and 15th at the Library. Advantage Lock and Key inspected our back door and said there was nothing they could do at this time to fix the sporadic issue with the door. We will continue to monitor the door for any further issues. Valerie Biel's visit to the high school was well attended. She had a lot of energy and had a well organized workshop planned for the students.
