On Thursday evening, December 18, friends, family, and fellow volunteers came together to celebrate the years of service given to the Sand Lake Town Library by long-term Board President Terrence Dingman.  Mr Dingman is stepping down after more than 10 years of dedicated service to the Sand Lake Town Library.   Below are pictures from the reception.

On Saturday, November 1 we started work on what we hope will eventually become an outdoor reading garden.  The First step was creating a hugelkultur – a type of raised bed built over logs.
