New Floor Easels for the Library

The library would like to thank Don Wunrow, Dale Hart and Len Roselle and other members of the N.E.I. Woodworkers club for giving the library 4 floor wooden easels made by the members. They are so sturdy and versatile, they will be a nice addition to our exhibits and displays we offer at the library. This is in addition to the 16 table easels that were donated by members. We appreciate you all so much!
