We would like to thank all our patrons and supporters for a great 2009. Without those of you who use our library, there would be no reason for us to be here. We would like to offer a special thanks to Steven F. Havill for the fiction writing workshops he has held free of charge (look for another one in January 2010); John Rereich for his generous donation; everyone who purchased a memorial book in honor of a loved one; those who donated books, movies and magazines to the library; those who bring their children to Preschool and Summer Story Hour; those who bring their small ones to the Library Lapsit (and a special thanks to Ida for conducting this great program!); R.B. Minton for continuing with the Raton Science Cafe; our special library board; the City of Raton, including City Hall and the City Commissioners; and especially to those special people who come in regularly and enjoy using our collection! Thank you very much for your support, we look forward to seeing all of you in 2010!
