Spring has sprung at the Library!
You may have noticed our newest additions in the green space located behind the Library. We have seven new trees that add beauty and (hopefully) lots of shade for our summer reading programs. The trees have been planted and are starting to bud out, so keep your eyes out for a very green spring at the Library!
Thanks to Prairie Power for donating the trees and Hembrough Lawn Care for planting them.
