Mills Library celebrates reopening with a ribbon cutting
Community members gathered at the Bob Goff memorial library for a library card and free food and ice cream.
The grand opening was a celebration since they were able to reopen after they had to close due to budget cuts.
Seth Coleman, Mills mayor, said he’s glad everyone came out to enjoy it.
“We’ve been working hard to get this open for quite a while so having it open is wonderful,” Coleman said.
Donna Kennedy, the librarian, said they’ve updated their hours from ten a.m. to seven p.m. to help accommodate everyone’s schedules.
“It gives kids more time and adults that work if they need to come in,” Kennedy said.
Community members had to sign up for a library card and fill out their U.S. Census form to get free food and ice cream.
Coleman hopes they will use the library card and use the library as a resource.
“It’s a place for families to bring kids and interact and people to come to read books, gather and meet and do things as a community,” Coleman said.
He added that the Bob Goff memorial library will be an asset to the community.
