Everything Happens for a Reason

A Message from the Director -- 

Late January 2024

“Everything happens for a reason” is a family mantra. In the depths of any personal challenge, these are the words of comfort that my mom always offers. Extending beyond the personal realm, this apparently applies. As Nancy Crowell thoughtfully kicked off a generator fund as a retirement gift from her to the library, El Nino in their might caused the library to lose power within months of her departure. This is a most timely incident and an affirmation as we hold the line on this initiative. So far we have raised $41,000 for the generator. Pending the power requirements of a new HVAC, we will be getting estimates for this much needed infrastructure upgrade. As storms file through one after another, we are preparing for change.
