Parking Lot Maintenance

Parking lot maintenanceThank you for your patience while we sealed and restriped the parking lots at the end of April.  The Library raised private funds to construct the library building, and keeps up on maintenance of the building and grounds with funds that are donated to our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
