Not only does the MAGS group come regularly to help the Library with indexing projects to help genealogists, they also are kind to donate funds to help the History Center operate too!<p>Pictured is Ms. Kehr with History Center head James Lewis. Thank you so very much, to all of the MAGS members and friends!</p> Tue, 31 May 2016 04:00:00 GMT http://www.jfpl.org/polNews.cfm?doc_id=40893 Library Closed For Memorial Day Weekend, Sat., Sun., and Mon. http://www.jfpl.org/polNews.cfm?doc_id=34741 In celebration of Memorial Day the library will be closed Saturday, May 28, Sunday, May 29 and Monday, May 30.

With a mix of hydrangeas, lamb's ears, redvein enkianthus, and many other varieties, the large planter and the space alongside the sidewalk by the 2006 wing will make patrons forget all of the construction work going on.<p><br /> Under the direction of landscape designer John Patrick Sulpy, Jr. of Eldridge Design, the Garden Club members got to work on the morning of May 9 to plant a variety of shrubs, perennials, grasses, and a tree. They also moved some existing hostas nearer our book bench. When you get a chance come and see all of their hard work - not only now, but in the coming months as various plants take root and bloom. Library patrons and staff are deeply indebted to the members of the Garden Club and Eldridge Design for taking time out of their busy schedules to help beautify our favorite library.<br /> &nbsp;</p> Tue, 10 May 2016 04:00:00 GMT http://www.jfpl.org/polNews.cfm?doc_id=39882 Library Closed Friday May 6 for Staff Training Day http://www.jfpl.org/polNews.cfm?doc_id=39880 The library will be closed all day on Friday, May 6 for a Staff Training Day.
