Our new parking lot!

Construction is underway at 76 Main Street – we will be adding 6 additional parking spaces in our lot behind the library! This is very exciting news for all of you who have struggled to find a place to park when visiting us.

Thank you so much to the Friends of the Library who are making this possible! If you are not already a member, this would be a wonderful time to do so and support this wonderful group!

Film Shoot at the library

film.jpg

If you noticed several trucks and lots of activity at the library last Sunday – we were the setting for a local film shoot. Our lovely meeting room was used for a scene that may appear in the “The True Believers”. They also used the Country Store as a setting for some other parts of the film. Above is photo of some of the cast and crew.
