Throughout December, we had a Wish List in the library and posted online.
We got many donations for childrens’ books and movies, and a couple of audio books. We truly appreciate the generosity of all the people who are helping us to add to our collection.
I want everyone to know that we were totally blown away by a lovely letter stating that dreams do come true and enclosing a check for $250 to help us replace the storm door at our handicap entrance.
