The library received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for five new computers and equipment. The new computers are a wonderful asset to our community library. The computers were new in the Spring of 2012.

The library is governed by five board members.  The librarian is state certified which allows special access to state funds and library records.  The library installed new carpeting and was painted in 2008.  It is a great fun place to check out!
