A beautiful evening hosted by Mary & Mark Hultgren.

Copper had a Birthday!

After many years serving as President of Murphys Volunteer Library, Inc., Pam Shoemaker has stepped down. She remains a valuable Board Director. Former Vice President Dennis Griffin was voted our new President, and Mary Hultgren was voted to take his place as VP. Andreas Schoen and Ted Morgan remain as Secretary and Treasurer, respectively.

The Board held a potluck to celebrate Pam's many years of service to the library.

Our featured author for June is Antoinette May! Click the menu link (under Home) to learn more about this local author.
