Where Are The Mighty Mites?

Monday, August 12th, 2013

  1> Here are the Mighty Mites! Full disclosure, the Mighty Mites are a pet project of mine. This is the home of little items of indeterminate interest and unknowable value. And that home (1) is on the second shelf from the top of the shelves on the left hand side of Serendipity at the back of the store. Need more directions?

Community Service Award

Monday, May 13th, 2013
FrancesRapin The FRL Board has selected Frances Rapin to receive this year’s Community Service Award. A check in the amount of $2,000 will be presented to the Library in her name, to be used as she specifies. Over the years Frances has been an innovator and an advocate for the Friends and for the Library. Under her leadership we conducted our Hi-$5 Campaign, which raised $45,000 to restore hours that budget cuts had eliminated from the Library’s schedule. We opened our Serendipity Book Store in October 1999, a project that originated with Frances and one that she worked tirelessly to bring about. Anyone who was involved knows very well that it would not have happened without Frances’ direction and hard work.
