March madness has a slightly different meaning in the library than it does for college basketball fans. For us the month begins with boxes and boxes of spring titles from favorite authors. Which means we have to find room for all these shiny new, in-demand stories. And that means we have to look hard at the books currently on our shelves, assess their continuing value, and move out those that don’t make the cut. Withdrawing books from the collection is always a little sad, but it is absolutely necessary to keep the library fresh, current, and meeting the needs of our readers.
The elevator project continues apace, and with it occasionally comes interesting aromas. We have painting going on today and the fumes are a bit on the strong side. You're welcome to visit, of course, but I just wanted you to know.
A big thank you to all the hearty souls who braved sub-zero temperatures last Saturday and shopped (and worked!) the Friends Winter Book Sale. You showed true dedication to the library and we are grateful for your support.
