Call for Donations: Can you help? We are looking for donations of both clean, usable Legos and working GPS units. We would like to offer Lego-building programs at the library for kids and teens this year, but first we need the Legos. Also, we would like to offer GPS units for check-out, so that patrons who would like to try geocaching may join in the fun without having to purchase such an expensive item. Whatever will our library think of next?!
