    Thank you to the fabulous Cheney Library Staff for organizing and promoting our 25th anniversary reception! We had amazing musicians from the newly formed Cheney Community Orchestra. Cookies, coffee and Apple cider from the Friends of the Cheney Library were enjoyed. The time capsule and commemorative quilts were some of my favorite displays. Thanks to everyone who attended to celebrate our wonderful library.
