An overdue note of thanks to Sandy Minehan, winner of our 2015 quilt raffle. Ms. Minehan has donated the quilt, which celebrates our library’s 100th anniversary, back to us, where it will beautify our building until our 200th anniversary. The quilt was crafted and donated for raffle in support of our children’s programs by local artist Carol Bunnell. Thank-you Sandy! Tickets for the 2016 raffle quilt, “Garden Path” will be available soon, for sale at our library. The winner will be drawn on September 11, 2016.
