Each year we must raise funds in order to continue serving the community as we do.

We are an independent library, and our state funding is based on community

support. Although times are tough, any contribution you can make to insure

the continuing excellence of McCord Memorial Library in the future,

would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

        I would like to launch a new book discussion group.

If interested in meeting with others who also love books

and want to share ideas and opinions, this would be a great place to begin.

We plan to meet at McCord Memorial Library in the Hall Holtham Room

the 3rd week after New Years, January 20, @ 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Title will be

announced in the January Books & Banter Newsletter and on our website.

Any and all are welcome to join the community conversations.

Mary Kieffer

Library Director

    We have received many donations in Lori Barnes’s name.

These will be used to purchase a special memorial feature for the library.
