Thanks to Union Pacific Foundation!

We don’t have photos of this one, but we’re so happy to announce that we received $5000 from Union Pacific Foundation to help fund literacy outreach programs at Scott Lane Preschool.

It’s a Different World…

The library has recently acquired a VR setup, thanks to AMD. They’re being judicious with scheduling time on it at the moment, so you have to pay close attention for when you have an opportunity to try it out. (STEM Central was one such opportunity.)

Appreciative Patrons

Appreciative Patrons

We’re always happy to share the library’s success stories! Sometimes, it’s just as easy as having a quiet place to study: Just five minutes ago another one of our patrons shared his success story. He said the reason we haven’t seen him since February because he passed his real estate exam. He said he had […]
