LIBRARY DIRECTOR'S REPORT
9-Jan-18
                 
Library News              
The Village has been to the library a few times this month to help us resolve some issues. The back door wouldn't open so Scott Gorman took the push bar off the door and removed an object from the push bar that shouldn't have been there. It seems to be fixed. The Village contacted us to let us know of a possible water leak in the Jamieson building according to their report. Kermit thought it may be the dehumidifier and unplugged it to see if that is the issue. The Friends of the Library had an increase in profits from both the Silent Auction and the Cookie Sale Fundraiser.
