North Channel will be closed for Labor Day

Like many of you out there, the North Channel Staff will be enjoying some down time during the Labor Day holiday as the library will be closed Sunday, September 4th and Monday, September 5th.  Since 1882, Labor Day has been celebrated in one way or another.  The North Channel staff hopes everyone has a fun and safe holiday.  We will see you when we re-open at regular hours on Tuesday, September 6th.
