Director’s Reflections…Thank You to Our Donors!


The past year has been exceptionally difficult as the library faced the dual challenges of an economic downturn and rising costs of information resources.  While many of our vendors were willing to forego scheduled price increases, others were not as accommodating.

Thus, we are particularly grateful to the donors listed below who generously supported the library with monetary gifts and in-kind contributions from November 2008 through October 2009.

Best wishes to all for a happy holiday season, and a successful and prosperous new year!
