We are always glad to see new faces. Thanks for visiting guys.

Elizabeth Roberts, our intern, is graduating and leaving us for bigger and better things. This makes us pretty sad. Elizabeth was a great worker and brought a little ray of sunshine to the library each tuesday.

We wish Elizabeth the very best in all her endeavors.
