If you have any books, pictures or other historical items please return to Historical library. If you know of anyone who has items checked out or removed from grounds please ask them to return. A recent inventory showed us that we are missing material.  As a board we are trying to get everything returned  to it's proper place so it is available for use by others.  We are not set up to be a lending library.  Items in our library are for the public's use on site only.
Please help us.
