Large Print readers rejoice! Due to popular demand (and the fact that we’ve completely run out of room) we’ve expanded the Large Print Collection with this beautiful (made-to-look like our old) new shelf built by local craftsman, Mark Pruis, and stained and varnished by our very own multi-talented librarian, LeAnn Smith! We’ve got lots of new large print books to help fill it as well!
October 7-13 is Teen Read Week!
