Children's GN 1Does your child like reading graphic novels and comic books?
Perhaps teen and adult superhero comics and graphic novels aren’t appropriate, though.
Now you can find what you want on this special shelf just for elementary school age!

broken chairIn 2011, Ashley Furniture gave us four comfy chairs for our 100th birthday.
A few years later, the leg broke on one of the chairs.
The chair languished in the closet for years, forgotten.
Once in a while the librarians would ask someone if they could fix it.
They either couldn’t fix it, or never got around to it.
Then, one day, Ron White, of Independence
(piano tuner and antique furniture repairer),
took it home and fixed it in a jiffy.
He donated his time and knowledge to finally
bring the four chairs back together again.
Thank you so much, Ron!

We are very sorry to see her go!
