We have some exciting programs this month:

His background in government and public records laws helped him in researching this eye-opening book. Admission is free.

Celebrate the completion of our ADA compliant ramp as well as other architectural restorations we’ve made over the past year at the library and Channing Chapel. These projects were made possible through a grant from the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation and gifts from our generous donors. Open house to show our appreciation is Fri., Aug. 17 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. Stop by! Light refreshments will be served.
