That's the number of people who attended the library Grand Opening on Sunday. It was cold and snowy outside, but the warmth of excitement at the opening of the new library building was felt by all inside.

The ceremony included comments from Mayor Tom Nipp, State Representatives Tom Saunders and Phil Phlum, and State Senator Beverly Gard. Library Director Jan Preusz, Former Board President Martin Shields, Owners Representative Fred Brames, and Architect Mike Montgomery shared their comments with the audience as well. Library Board President Debby Weidert and Director Jan Preusz cut the ribbon to wrap up the ceremony.

Immediately following the ribbon cutting, Pat Cronk McCraine provided musical entertainment for guests. Mike Fleming and friends sang a variety of bluegrass tunes, and Kevin Kendrick played classical piano during the day as well.

The event, sponsored by Friends of the Library, kicked off a week of events at the library. For more information about upcoming events, log on to
