LIBRARY NEWS: Don't forget that Thursday, January 29, is the last day the Kothe Memorial Library will be open for business until after construction work is completed, which will be the first part of March.  On Friday, January 30, a group of Aplington-Parkersburg Students will be on hand to move library materials and furniture so that construction can begin the following Monday.

This new construction project includes renovation of the existing restrooms as well as a new ceiling in the main library (not the children's addition). The ceiling will be insulated and new energy efficient lights will be installed. Funding for this project was made possible through local donations and the Black Hawk County Gaming Association. Library materals that need to be returned may be placed in the book drop located by the front door.
