Monday morning, January 14, we looked out the front window of the library and there was a man out picking up all those annoying little sticks left on the ground after the ice storm. The big limbs and fallen branches had been gathered up and carried off by the City Crew a long time ago. We just hadn’t decided who to get to do the dirty work of raking all those little sticks.
Our problem was solved when Virgil Engelken decided he needed something to do on a frigid winter morning, so he came to the library, not to pick up a book to read, or a movie to watch, but to clean up our yard! Thank you, Virgil, we really appreciate your hard work. Virgil’s wife Loyola sits on the library board of directors.
