Library News

Monica and Mark Jagel brought our exterior library sign back to life. Mark fixed the sign and Monica used her painting skills to give it a fresh coat of paint. Thank you for sharing your talents with the library! 

The Ontario Book Group will meet in person on Wednesday, December 9 at 2 am in the library basement. We’ll be discussing Hideensee: A Tale of the Once and Future Nutcracker by Gregory Maguire. This inventive novel is inspired by a timeless holiday legend, intertwining the story of the famous Nutcracker with the life of the mysterious toy maker named Drosselmeier who carves him. Copies can be picked up at the circ desk. New members are always welcome!
