LIBRARY NEWS: This week highlights some of the special blessings the library has recently received during this time of Thanksgiving.  We would like to say a very special Thank-You to all of our great volunteers who have stepped in to help fill the void while Children's Librarian Jody Nielsen was recovering from surgery. We had a number of people that helped provide Story Time activities on Thursday mornings. Pat Gosch also helped behind the scenes at the front desk. Pat faithfully volunteered her services several times a week during September and October checking in library materials and shelving them. On behalf of the library staff and board we would like to extend our gratitude for all the help that was given.
