organization, some Millington Arbela District Library staff and their family members spent the day painting inside the library, and creating a new north side garden.
The new paint gives a needed fresh look to the interior. The north side exterior of the library building, a year ago the site of cracked concrete and mud, is now home to another attractive garden. The building is now surrounded on three sides by gardens.
Many thanks to all those who gave their time and energy to the benefit of us all. Volunteerism builds communities.
