OPEN HOUSE: Library renovation celebration!
Tuesday, July 18 from 5:00-7:00pm in the Wright County Heritage Center (2001 Hwy 25 N, Buffalo, MN)--Library & Activity Room.
Thanks to a very generous donation by the Ellison Family Trust, WCHS’s research library underwent a major transformation, including the addition of in-floor internet connection and a new staff work area. Andy Larson of Larson Building (Buffalo) served as contractor for the project which took nearly eight weeks to complete, including moving the entire library twice! Come see the transformation, talk with WCHS board members, staff and members of the Ellison family, and stay for cake and lemonade.
RSVP's not required but appreciated for this drop-in event.
