Letter from the Editor
Why do we love libraries? I suppose for many it's because you can check out a best-seller or the latest video game using a simple plastic library card and for FREE. Or, maybe it because it conjures up lots of positive memories.

Whatever the reason, we hope you continue exploring the gifts offered at this Library throughout this month…and year. Happy Library Lover's Month!
