Most of the streets are plowed and we are open! We're having a little trouble with one of our phones, so if you can't get through, feel free to call any other branch (just have your Library card ready). Don't forget to clean your car off before driving!

POLICE OFFICERS OF THE MONTH February, 2018 P/O Les Charlton #1396 P/O Edward Sawicki #9606 P/O Brian Waters #7598 On Thursday, February 8 Police received a radio call of a fire on the 1900 block of Morrell St. Police officers Charlton, Sawicki and Waters arrived on location and saw that the back of the property was fully engulfed in flames which were spreading quickly to the adjoining house. While everyone in the initial location safely evacuated the house, the officers noticed the occupants of the adjoining property had not evacuated. Police Officers Charlton, Sawicki and Waters banged on the door of the second property and found a wheelchair-bound elderly couple and their caretaker inside of the house. The house was filled with smoke and the roof was on fire. The officers carried the wheelchair-bound husband and wife to safety while they were still in their wheelchairs. The caretaker was also escorted out of the property. The elderly couple was taken to the hospital and listed in good condition. The selfless, courageous acts of Police Officers Charlton, Sawicki and Waters saved the lives of the wheelchair-bound elderly couple and their caretaker. For their brave actions, we are proud to recognized these three officers as our Police Officers of the Month for February, 2018. http://7thpdac.com/police_officer_of_the_month
