Recent Donations to the Library

We have had numerous people drop off books to put in our book sale. Stop in and fill a bag for two dollars! All proceeds go back into the library towards the purchase of new items to add to our colleciton.

We would like to thank the family of Patricia Lind for the donation made to our library recently. Mrs. Lind served on our Library Board for many years and had requested that our library receive a portion of the memorials made in her name. The library will use the donation to replace our bench out in front of the library with a new polywood bench that should not need any upkeep. Quite often people can be seen using the bench while on our WIFI or sitting to talk or read. It is a much appreciated donation and we thank Pat's family.  

We were included in a grant from Chippewa County and received by the Cornell Senior Citizens Center. Our library received seven hundred dollars that we will use for Adult Large Print books and Adult Audio Books.  We appreciate being included in the grant and would like to thank Katie Matott for thinking of us!

We would like to thank the following people who recently made monetary donations to the library.  It is greatly appreciated.  Sharon Olson and Eugene Wilcox made donations in memory of Grace Shipley.  Carole Moussette and Craig and Sharon Shepard made donations in memory of Patricia Lind. Items will be purchased and added to our collection in their names. James Norwak and Shelley DeJongh also made a monetary donations to the library and we thank them for their generousity.

We often receive donations of used books, DVD’s and CD's. Most of these items are put on our sale carts and the proceeds from the sale of the items benefit our library. We would like to thank the following people for recent donations:
