WISH LIST FOR THE WOMBLE LIBRARY ~ this is a work in progress. We HAVE a seamstress to sew the room darkening drapes for the windows. We still would like sheers to cover the windows when the drapes are open; a rug for the floor; a computer, the library has an Internet connection available. Stop by and see the progress. We are striving to make the library a quiet place to read, hold meetings and in general make it a more warm and welcoming useful addition to the facilities at St. Michaels.
