WEEKLY QUOTE "I wonder if the sap is stirring yet, if wintry birds are dreaming of a mate, if frozen snowdrops feel as yet the sun and crocus fires are kindling one by one; sing robin, sing; I still am sore in doubt concerning Spring." – Christina Rossetti, poet

THE LIFT IS HERE Our new handicapped-accessible outdoor lift has been installed and should be available for use as of today. The new design is enclosed from lift to entrance, easy to use, and easy to access via the recently repaved sidewalk. This replaces our old ramp, which had deteriorated to the point where it was not safe to use. We apologize for the many and varied circumstances that caused the delays in constructing the lift, and thank you for your patience. Please stop by and take a look or a ride (weather permitting, of course.)

EGG HUNT The ninjas will return to the library on Saturday, March 26th at 11 AM. Pass their trials to earn your official ninja school certificate, and then hunt for treat-filled eggs around the building.
