As we contemplate adding an access ramp to our small, lovable library, we turned our eyes to reorganizing the internal space of the library. With the heroic efforts of our Board President, Ralph Marino, our intrepid Vice-President Dale Akin, and an extremely talented designer friend, Patti Krawiecki, we made a great start in making our space more accessible. We have our DVD collection located in a “Media Nook” and shuffled around some of the nonfiction. It is by no means permanent, or even halfway finished, but we are all pleased with the results! Come check it out, browse to see where we moved things, and by all means, check out the basement!!
Here is our new “Media Area” where you can browse for a movie or three…
