First, I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the Friends of the Library for organizing the Welcome Reception, to the Library Board and the Mason Study Club members who assisted, to everyone who attended, and to those of you who have welcomed me in other ways. I feel blessed to be here. Second, some of you may not realize that we now have a growing selection of DVD movies! You have the same two-week check-out as you enjoy for books, but, of course, you must have a library card. During your next visit, be sure to take a look. The following titles are just a tiny sampling of our holdings.
