HSR Special Presentation: The Still Family History

The library will proudly host the General Meeting of the Historical Society of Riverton as well as its guest speaker, former professional basketball player, Valerie Still.  Her own story, as well as that of her other famous relatives will be fascinating.

So please join us at the library for The Still Family History on Wednesday, February 28th at 7 PM.

She has a special heritage, that of being related to:

Get Organized!

Nancy Fort has been hard at work GETTING ORGANIZED in our library.

She has weeded out old, unpopular book titles, saved the very best for our library, and reorganized the interior of our space so that it is open, airy, with teen space, work tables, a technology area and ample seating.  She is a prime example of a special program that you won’t want to miss!  The library presents, Get Organized! on Thursday, February 22nd at 4 PM.  You, too, can de-clutter, organize your home and work, and feel better and more productive in the process.

Take a look at her fantastic results!
