Story Walk Ribbon Cutting and Tree Dedication

Join us in celebration on Sunday, May 15th at 1:00 PM

Please join us for a ribbon cutting to open the new permanent Story Walk at the G.A.R. Memorial Library.  Using funds raised with your support of the Friends of the Library we have been able to purchase this fun outdoor reading experience.

We'll have a brand new story installed to celebrate and lots of fun giveaways, refreshments and more.

At the same time The Trustees of the Library will be dedicating a new tree planted on the library grounds in honor of Kay Gove, beloved Library Director.
