Book Display Table Sponsored by Library Benefactor

Library Director Andrew Hamm (left) and donor Dr. Bernard Malberg (right) show off the new library display table featuring new arrivals to the collection.

The library was fortunate to have a local resident sponsor a beautiful, custom-made book display table which now graces the entrance to the Adult Reading Room. Dr. Bernard Malberg, a long-time library user, generously provided the library with funds to purchase a two-tier cherry book display table complete with slat-wall book display holders and book shelves. The library is using this handsome piece of furniture to display items from the New Book area, and our library users are making good use of it, checking out many of the items exhibited there. Stop in and check out some of our newest arrivals attractively displayed on this new addition to the library.
