New Library
The grand opening of the new Shoreview Library will take place this Saturday, January 28th, from 10 am to 5 pm.  Included in the inaugural ceremonies is an exhibit by Gallery 96 members titled "New Beginnings".  32 works of art will grace the new gallery wall in the library's Community Room.  The hanging system for that wall was donated to the library by Gallery 96 through funds raised last summer at two raku pottery events held during the Shoreview Farmers Market.
