Thanks to patron donations, the Godino Mystery Wing is supplied with wonderful chairs for patrons to settle in and work, read, or to just rest and enjoy the view.

Cheers for Chairs


Our new meeting room on the third floor needs your help. This is where our community gathers for movies and special events. It needs an important finishing touch.


We would like to replace the plastic chairs with more comfortable padded chairs. Gifts of $150.00, the full price of a chair, will enable donors to personalize a chair.


Donations of any size will be greatly appreciated. Any staff member can give you more information. You can also donate to  general library needs.


Thank you for your consideration,
