A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Over the past month, work has been interrupted yet again by the weather. Luckily, before the January snow storm hit, Kinsley was able to remove the big hill that blocked the view of our new library location. And, close inspection of the image featured left will reveal the stakes that have been put into
place depicting the approximate location of the future planned Higbee Lane.

In Other News ...
A brand new fire hydrant that will serve the library site and surrounding areas has already been installed!
