A new website!

As you can see, the library website has a new look.  It was created using the blogging software WordPress which also makes it much easier to update when compared with the old website.  We will try to keep the site current with the happenings around the library.  It is still (and probably always will be) a work in progress so comments or e-mails are welcome.  In the meantime, check out some of the links and pages to the left and right of this post.  Enjoy!
