Thanks to the FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY we have new shelves in the children's area!

Aren't they lovely!? This shelving unit replaces those pesky spinners the books on tape/cd used to be on. These are one of the benefits of the Friends of the Library's Spelling Bee in 2007. The couch and music CD holder are the other new elements from the Friends!

It took a team to get the shelves together! Thanks to Bill North, David Geist, Steve Schmidt, Larry Morgan and Bernie Shakel for helping Leesa and me.
