I joined this small nonprofit group 6 months ago because I felt very fortunate to have such a wonderful resource in our small town. The building the Library is housed in was originally the town's only schoolhouse. It was built 137 years ago in a Second French Empire style which makes it very unique compared to other historic buildings in town. The fact that the building is still serving a useful purpose after all these years, while many other comparable structures statewide are empty and abandoned is a tribute to a forward thinking township. The Library serves citizens in neighboring rural communities as well. There is no charge to obtain a library card if you are a U.S. citizen. This makes our Library unique as the emphasis is placed on reading and discovery, not exclusion. " The Friends" is a small but devoted group of volunteers who support the mission of the Library. We are confident that out Library is serving current patron needs and we are committed to insuring the Library's relevance in the future.
