Friends General Meeting - July 29th

Monday, July 29th at 10:00 AM in the Community Room at the Library.

We are excited to welcome Britney Lippke, a Service Dog Trainer as our guest speaker for the upcoming Friends General Meeting in July. Britney has 5 years experience working with and training service dogs and says there are a lot of misconceptions about them. This should be a very interesting and informative topic. Please make note of this event and attend. Meet you there….
