Come Celebrate 10 Years in our "New" Building and 55 Years Serving the Butler Community!


You are invited to celebrate with us Thursday, April 4th at 6:30pm, here at the library.


Join us in fondly remembering the "old" library at Village Hall, and how the new building came to be built! It was completed with the effort of many community members, your neighbors!
