Grand opening this weekend for Mills Library

The Bob Goff Memorial Library hasn’t seen very many faces in the past year due to it being closed due to a lack of funding.

On Saturday, June 26, they are hosting a grand opening. Donna Kennedy, the librarian, said they were able to open back in April, but couldn’t due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

She added there will be a raffle, a representative from the U.S. Census Bureau and free food and ice cream.

“Our first prize will be a 50 inch TV, the second prize will be a compressor combo with a two nailer and a stapler and the third prize will be a manicure basket. I also have gift cards to four restaurants,” Kennedy said.

Also, community members can have the food if they sign up for a library card and fill out the Census.

Kennedy hopes the library will be a great resource for everyone.

“Part of my problem with the old library was that it wasn’t open late enough. Especially for the kids getting off the school busses when it was already closed. Our new hours are 10 in the morning to seven o’clock at night. That gives the kids more time and the adults that work more time too,” Kennedy said.

She added she’s grateful for the community’s support.
