Vermillion continued “During the festival, the Elizabeth branch will be open its normal Saturday hours from 10 am to 5 pm for routine business. At the same time, the Friends of the Elizabeth Library will hold their annual book sale of used books with some great bargains in the large inventory. Book sale proceeds go to the Friends organization to fund items not in the library’s budget.”
In other library related news, Fred Beisser, president of the Elbert County Libraries Foundation (http://www.ECLF.US), announced that people attending the Festival can receive a guided tour of the library building and learn about the planned changes to its current configuration that will make it an even greater and more spacious library. The tours will be lead by foundation board members and district trustees. “While we sure like the new building with its roomy feel compared to the former Main Street building, the best is yet to come” Beisser stated. We will show you how our architect planned for using both the portion currently in use and also the large warehouse on the west side of the building to create a state of the art library about twice as large as we now have.”
