The Friends of the library will host a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for their outdoor space on September 24th at 9 am. All are welcome to attend and enjoy this beautiful outdoor addition to our community. This will be in conjunction with their Annual Fall Quilt Raffle. The quilt, “Winter Bouquet” was made by Carol Noth and is double-sided. You may view it at the library or on the library’s website, legionmemoriallibrary.org under the News section. Tickets are available from the library at $1 each. A variety additional prize donations have been arriving at the library. These donations and ticket sales as well as sponsorship, participation, and all the volunteers are what made this beautiful new addition to our library possible. Thank you.
