Greetings Library Friends,
September squeaked by so quickly that I need a moment to catch my breath!
As I pause, I am reminded that the library is not just my job but a small part in a wonderful community. I feel lucky and privileged to be a part of this community and am happy that I am able to provide a service and that you all allow me a bit of freedom to continue traditional programming as well as some non-traditional things!
Thank you and I am looking forward to a wonderful autumn!
