“The library can help the community in so many ways,” stated Kelly Rembert, outreach Librarian. “We want to take this day to showcase how the library can help you succeed.  We help children learn and grow.  We help adults with their research and job skills.  We help everyone have fun and be their best selves. We want to take this opportunity to showcase all that the library is and will how we continue to grow with the community.”
“Today is a day both to celebrate our past and anticipate our future,” stated City Librarian Mary Beall. “Most of all, it is a day to thank our community for all the ways they have supported, championed, and helped us succeed in our mission.”

This event is free and open to the public. Come celebrate with the library as they recognize their anniversary and enjoy many more years to come.
