Montgomery Locals 2.19.2020

The library was bustling with activity this past Saturday with the "Love Your Library" Open House. As soon as guests walked in the doors, they were greeted warmly by library board members who handed out gifts and were all too happy to share information on the many services, programs, and new technologies the library offers. The library was adorned with vases of flowers, Valentine-themed decorations, and colored lights. A nice spread of refreshments and beverages were served. A large collection of the library's scrapbooks and photo albums of Montgomery history were on display downstairs, giving patrons a sample of the resources available in the history room.

The juvenile book room was filled with kids who were eagerly making happy face heart ornaments that they could choose to take home or hang on the library's Valentine tree, which was three feet high and wrapped with lights. It was covered in brightly-colored foam hearts that were decorated with "googly" eyes and

the children took great pride in hanging their sweet little masterpieces on its branches. Craft activities were overseen by Library Director Nicole Loffredo, or "Miss Nicole" as she's known to the town's little ones who enjoy the library's many activities. Assistant librarian Cynthia Bryan was also in attendance, running the library's operations during the event and helping out as needed. Overall, it was a great event to showcase what a gem the library is to our community.
