J.H. Robbins Memorial Library

Warm weather is here at last! That is my view anyway; I have already heard people coming in saying,“It’s too hot out there.”

How do you make everyone happy? I know — you supply them with a library full of a variety of books and activities and tell them they can choose. How much better can it get?
