There’s been some changes…

Over the last year, we have purchased furniture and updated areas throughout the library.  We hope you have had an opportunity to enjoy the newspaper and a cup of coffee in one of the comfy chairs or browsed the new audiobook cabinet for the latest releases.

The retaining wall and statue garden area get an update.

During the months of August and September, these areas got a much needed facelift.  DPW staff worked on preparing the retaining wall, as well as pouring a new concrete pad at the base of the outside stairs.  The wall was resurfaced and capped.

The ladies from the Fontana Garden Club, also, redesigned the statue area.  They have worked on this area, as well as Sam’s Garden, all summer–making them a lovely addition to the library landscape.

Thank you to everyone involved with these projects.
