I want to thank Rosemary Davis for designing our float (which won 2nd place in the Civic category!) and all the other Library Board members who worked so hard putting it together. I also want to thank our lovely Queen candidate Faith Ingracia for representing the library. I’m glad that the library can participate—it’s great to be part of such a longstanding community tradition! Remember to “like” us on Facebook!
