Making Memories for Children

These programs are only possible because of sponsorship we receive.  We need new sponsors to continue this year!  For a minimum of $500, you can become a sponsor.  Your name will be included in all Making Memories for Children publications, here on our website and on signage in the library.  The children of our community will benefit greatly and it is fully tax-deductible.
