LIRARY NEWS              
Staff continues to learn Bibliovation updates.  The 2019 Annual Report is complete & awating Board approval.  A community service student washed the interior & exterior windows and completed a lot of helpful projects around the Library.  On display in January & February are some lovely snowflakes made by Poynette Elementary art students.  All three 5th grade classes came on 01/31 to check out books for History Night.  Furniture was moved to create a "new" Middle School seating area.
