Library has new circulation desk!

Come by and see the new circulation desk at the library- it has many new features to serve you better including a new “inside the library” book return. The Library wishes to thank the EP Sanderson Fund, Customs Cabinets and the Library Board of Trustees who came together and made the decisions to incorporate two new work stations and a new shelving unit to provide the staff with more room to store reserved items and interlibrary loans! Here’s a sneak preview, but to really get the idea of it, you’ll need to see for yourself!
