The Rippey Public Library is in their new space, July 2, 2011!!

Many hands helped move a good share of the books and shelves into the new space on July 2, 2011. It will be a while before everything is normal, but the library is operating!!

Twenty  gathered on Saturday, July 2 to move items from the library into the new building.  The ages of the volunteers ranged from 4 years old to 80.  Books and items were moved by several different methods-two wheeled cart, little red wagon, chair cart, and a large trailer.  Some items were carried up the street. A lunch break was taken at noon and work resumed.  By 3:30 pm nearly all of the books were moved and shelved.    Cleaning out the remainder of the items from the old library would have to wait for another day.  

Wednesday the internet connection and phone was installed.  The email address for the library has changed to rippeyli@windstream.net
