Were you aware that our library is governed by a board of directors, local folks who volunteer their time to oversee our operations and provide guidance? The nine members are Chanin Rotz- Mountz, Loy Garber, Marian Sickles, Ken Keebaugh, Angela Adams, Leslie Miller, Phil Harper, Dayton Tweedy and Stephanie Emrick. We recognize and thank these folks for their dedication and direction.
