Library Corrects Inaccurate News
It seems the library is the topic of some inaccurate news. Over the last month the library staff has heard some questions and concerns about the future of the library. Some people think that the library is soon moving to Taft Corners and the Library Trustees were voting to do so at their February meeting. FaceBook and word-of-mouth are great for passing things along quickly but what is passed along is not always correct. Please remember to go to the source for accurate information. In this case, ask the library!
Here is the real news:
