Bookwalk and Library Opens!

Apr 29, 2023

Opening day of the Library is May 2nd, but the community was able to participate in the historic move by carrying items from the previous location at 2 Main Street to their new home at 9 Milford Street.

Afterwards, an open house allowed a sneak peek at the new facility!
