Upcoming events

The Anita Wilson Memorial Family Concert Series

The Friends of the Library Advisory Board has established a Memorial Family Concert Series to honor long time library volunteer, Anita Wilson. Anita was a Friend of the Library since the late 1970's and was on the Advisory Board for most of that time. If you visited the Children's section at any of our Book Sales during the last 20 years, you likely were helped by Anita. She combined her love of children and her love of libraries to work tirelessly for both by over seeing the children's books, working year round to sort and pack the books in preparation for the sale and then worked the sale itself.

If you would like to donate, checks can be made out to the Friends of the Lucy Robbins Library with Anita Wilson Memorial in the memo line and dropped off at or mailed to the library.
