Fall, autumnal equinox, harvest time, Indian summer…..whatever you chose to call it, it is the time of year that things change. The leaves are colorful. The garden is almost done. The weather turns cooler. Here at the library it is also changing. Our director, Debra Greenacre, has returned to her home town of Michigan, where she has accepted a director’s position there. We wish her well!
