LIRARY NEWS              
Brooke Foye has been hired for the LTE program assistant position through the end of December to provide a monthly Saturday story time. There was standing water in the basement due to the breaker being tripped. Scott Gorman is looking into putting an alarm on the sump pump so we are alerted if it isn't working properly. The spring programs were wrapped up in the beginning of May and staff are working to get ready for the Summer Library Program with the theme of: A Universe of Stories.
