Come and enjoy the addition of comfortable new seating at the library. Along with the bistro set provided by funds from a Cooperative Light and Power Operation Round-Up grant, the library has set up a new, more comfortable seating area. A pair of Queen Anne chairs has been reupholstered with monies from the Virginia Burandt memorial funds. Visitors may enjoy WiFi, read newspapers and magazines, watch movies, listen to books on cd, or just relax and enjoy the view in the new seating area.
