Village library celebrates five year anniversary

by Bonnie Whitehead

CLIFFORD - Librarian Henny Derbecker greeted visitors to the Clifford library and offered pieces of birthday cake and glasses of punch recently in celebration of its fifth anniversary at 7 Brown St. North.

Derbecker can hardly believe the library is five years old and she wanted to celebrate the milestone.

That celebration was not filled with oodles of dignitaries and visitors, there wasn’t a red ribbon to cut, and Steve Glofcheskie and his workers were not there to tack in the last finishing nail to the building - but there were plenty of members who are grateful for the new surroundings.

In fact, two people who had recently moved to Clifford were stopping by the medical clinic for flu shots and noticed the library. They went in to visit, enjoyed some cake and coffee, and became new members.

There is a brochure at the library that lists the hours and all the programs and services of the 14 branches in Wellington County.

The library also distributes a newsletter called Link that announces courses, branch events and news and photos about the branches.

The library boasts a great cross section of books, video games and movies to see and computers to use. Visitors can curl up by the fire place and read a local newspaper or find a magazine article that interests.

If there is a book people cannot find, it can be ordered from another library to arrive within the week.

Set fines on overdue books and movies are still a part of the library, however the ongoing book sale allows people to set their own price and pick up a book or two or more for a suitable donation.

Assistant Barb Potts runs a number of children’s story times including Bedtime Stories, Book Club, Page Turners and special events like Stampin’ Up activities.

Call 519-327-8328 for information and hours of operation.
