We have been in the process of moving this month. We are moving out of the back library work room to make space for record storage for the school and now have a new workroom and office/personal area in our library. We have packed and unpacked and are ready to go in our new spaces. We also have been adjusting to the fact that we will be losing our full time library assistant next school year, who is being placed at an elementary school. So it has been an interesting month to celebrate library month with all the changes taking place. A big thank you to C & M for all of their help with moving cabinets and shelving during our move. We appreciate you greatly!

New area for supplies and equipment
