The staff is so glad to finally have doors which operate easily. Joan Lindsey, President of the Friends, wants to say, "Thank-you to all who sponsored these events and took part in them. Without community support, this would never have been possible. The library is so important to so many people and we wanted to provide a place for the adults to read or use their laptops without children. We also plan to have a coffee and tea bar in this room. It is truly going to be a beautiful place." Kevin Kelly, a member of the Friends group, is going to paint the walls and refinish the wood floors before the furniture is delivered." Another improvement to the facility is in the Conference Room. For many years, people using the Conference Room have used six foot tables pushed together to make a table large enough for groups of ten or more people. When the NTLP regional office closed, they had to dispense their furniture, office machines and other pieces of equipment to the fifty or so member libraries. Each library was allowed to put their name in a drawing for what they wanted. Lanora Joslin put in bids for several items, and after the drawing, received two of the largest pieces of furniture given away -a conference table which seats 12-16 people, 14 rolling conference chairs, and a beautiful solid wood, round table for the Parlor. "We are so sad our regional library office is closing, but since it was forced to do so, we are very excited to have the beautiful furniture," stated Lanora Joslin, Director. "We hope everyone will come in when we have an Open House after all of our projects are finished."
