     wing. The dedication, hosted by the Friends of Community Li-

for construction of the 3,000 + square foot addition.
Speakers for the event were Rebecca Hamilton, State Librarian, and

the Lt. Governor. Hudson is the son of the late Rep. Charles Hudson.
Also in attendance were state library consultants Dorothy White, Je-
rome Cummings and State Library Board of Commissioners member

fiction collection, patron workstations, a reading area and a meeting
area with kitchenette and restroom facilities.
