Here it is February and there really isn't much going on at the Library. We had BINGO Tuesday the 4th but not many showed up. This weather is keeping people close in order not to get sick. We had some good BINGO times even if we were few in number. The regular monthly meeting for the Friends will be Friday 14th. We urge everyone to come to take part in the meetings so we can keep track on what is going on
