One Response to Welcome!

    Saturday, September 26, I stopped by the library seeking information about the Greek festival. Whoever was on duty was most helpful and pleasant and even gave me a copy of the August 12 edition of the News-Blade, which featured the festival.

    As it was quiet, I called my wife inside. She’s a reference librarian for the city of Palo Alto, CA.
    Our short visit was on just the second day of a 3-week vacation in The Heartland.

    The name escapes me, but to whoever was on duty that day, thanks so much for your assistance.
