Photo submitted Officers greet manager New officers for Friends of the Cedaredge Public Library welcomed Lea Hart, the new library manager, at their first meeting of the year. The Friends group donated $3,500 to the library for new acquisitions. The money that the Friends group raises at its spring and fall book sales provides new books, DVDs, and other material for the library. Throughout the year, the Friends support the library in various ways including the Summer Reading Program.
