LIBRARY NEWS 2015

From our librarian, NevaJean:  …“Last year was a time of shuffling books around trying to find shelf space.  Then what joy it was to get a new children‘s book case and move their section out from adult fiction.  Now everything is easier to find….keep reading in 2015.  FYI…Yvonne was the top reader of 2014.  During the last year 291 items were checked out in comparison to 288 in 2013.”
