Leisa’s Place

Our wonderful new Library named in loving memory of Leisa Crane Dedicated July 20, 2017

LIBRARY: The library is open once again beginning Thursday, January 9. Since we have only one open time per week, you are welcomed to call me if you should need a book. I realize that some people are in the library space for other purposes during the week and avail themselves of books at those times. This is fine as long as you leave a note on the desk with the title, author, your name and the date you borrowed the books. Most have been very conscientious about this and I thank you. During January I hope to have several additional items on the shelves. Suggestions for purchases always welcomed as well as your donations of newer titles. Please call me with any of these possibilities! Thank you.

PJ STORY HOUR 2020 I continue to search for volunteers to manage the Liibrary’s Story Hour program which would begin in July for 8 Monday evenings. At this point, I have had one individual offer to assume a portion of this program. I am hoping they remain interested. Many have said they would hate to see Story Hour end after so many years. I agree. However, it will require a small group of volunteers to make it so. Please review the information below and consider being part of this summer Library offering. Contact me if you have any questions and so forth. Sue Maccalous 207-283-1743
