Memorial Brick placement underway!

The placement and arrangement of the Memorial Bricks is underway! Designs are being laid out so the bricks will have a pleasing, symmetrical pattern. Some 100 bricks have been purchased and it is a goal of the Library Board to give the public every chance to be included in this project. For those that have been contemplating or delaying: times’ a-wasting! The information is available below or on the library’s website. Order You Brick Now!
