|Library celebrates with Art and Tea Party Sunday|

Beautiful summer weather welcomed guests at Heginbotham Library’s Art and Tea Party Sunday, July 11. Artwork by local artists was displayed while a number of art pieces and homemade goodies were available at a silent auction.

Heginbotham Library staff, board members and Friends of the Library proudly showed off the recently completed restoration project. Librarian Laura Roth said there was “beautiful workmanship” done as paint was stripped, damaged wood was repaired, new paint was applied and the balcony was rebuilt.
“I am thrilled the project is complete—the library looks so bright and beautiful!” said Roth.
Tiles for the roof have been donated and will be available when that needs to be repaired. Masonry is the next project that will be considered sometime down the road.
